This spring’s energy of the universe has placed some of the most powerful women I’ve ever met in my life’s path.  Intelligent, wise, thoughtful, connected with living things.  Connected to our warming soil.  And tuned in with the power of their femininity.  Not in that bright shining, hair-sprayed, overly-pink, fluffy kind of way.  In the strong, cultivating, present, witty, and courageous sort of way.

What did they have in common?  They all had their wits about them.  They live in the present yet consider the future.  They don’t let spring’s insanity get them flustered.  They aren’t afraid to say…

  • “We’ll make the best of it.”
  • “Let’s take one thing at a time.”
  • “We’ll get to that eventually.”

But above all, they take time to be good to themselves.  Women serve – their parents, their siblings, their families, their children, their employers, their employees, their communities, their churches, their soup pantries…and we give and give and give.  But these powerful women stop.  They stop and take time to regenerate, revive and review.  Whether the cup of tea, the decadent lunch, the time for a walk in the garden, seeking out spring wildflowers, a massage, a bit of yoga, or a cheerful visit with an old friend – they each take time to take care of themselves.

Feeling frazzled?  At your wit’s end?  Repeat those wise phrases above.  Live in the now.  And feel great about making a choice to be good to you.  It will pay enormous dividends when we arrive at the scorching sizzling spring culmination into summer.
