The weather was beautiful around here over the weekend. Perfectly spring like. Perfect for days spent out of doors. Today we're enjoying a perfectly timed spring rain.
Each year we say no more shuffling, adding, subtracting of plants and beds in our yard. But spring comes and we submit to the pull - the pull of how much nicer things will look if we just do this, or that. So we did - this weekend, both days were spent in the yard digging, moving, watering.
With spring filling our spirits, I felt having, and sharing, a few spring affirmations was in order. To help me make the most of the wonderful renewal that's happening all around us outside - to bring it inside too.

With each step, I will be grounded like the earth beneath my feet.

Today I will bloom like a flower and let my worries melt into the earth and into the sky.

Today may my soul be surrounded in peace and my energy balanced.

Please share your spring affirmations. Hoping you had a lovely weekend!

I love the sunglasses pic! Thought I would share one of my favorite - get out of doors quotes...

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Kahlil Gibran

My feet are grounded in the earth like the roots of a tree and my branches reach up to gather the energy of the universe.

Thanks for sharing yours Emmy

It's funny that Christina quoted Gibran when he is immediately who I thought also. At least they are different quotes. Here's mine, from "on work" in The Prophet:

"You work that you may keep pace with the earth and with the soul of the earth.
For to be idle is to become a stranger unto the seasons, and to step out of life's procession, that marches in majesty and proud submission toward the infinite."
