We kinda did cause the whole Netherland did:-)
We looked for those eggs, had some, looked for those bunnies, did not find any, looked for the chocolate, found some and somebody had it...:-)
I made this egg (and you cannot see well but on the background it's snowing!!!
White Easter, I had never had one of those before!
I could complain about the weather but I remember the AA prayer. .. (not cause I used it but cause I find it good)...
..and I realize Mommy Weather is not something I could influence..
It's almost here!!!
When I proposed an April SHINE challenge that would bring us from the Winter Slumber to the Sunny Summer I had no idea that the winter will still be lounging in my garden!
But still, it is. It is snowing today as we speak and write and read..:-)
Thus I believe a Shining Challenge is totally in order. It starts in 3 days, on April 1st (no fools here, right?), and for most of us it will be right after we had delighted in all those Easter chocolate rabbits and eggs:-)
I am sure most of you can relate..:-)
.. (if not, much muchos muchos respect for you!!)
I invite you to become friends with yourself. If you are already, even better, think of how you can make this friendship even sweeter. Think, how would you treat a loved one if she/he would come to visit for only 30! Days?
I invite you to commit to yourself. From one Shining Mama to other Shining Mama's (and we have a few Shining Papa's amongst us, too!!) - I am honored that you go along with me on this journey and I applaud you for being willing to take the time for yourself.
Sooo, is the spring around for you?
It certainly feels like that for me..
I also feel like I need to transition, that I need to take some steps to honor the winter in order to get to spring and summer. Every spring I feel like I need to re-birth, and this spring more than ever.
Beginning with April 1st (no fools at Shining Mama) I decided to go through a process of transitioning from the winter slumber to the go bare warmth of the long days; from warm clothes on top of each other and artificial light, to long evenings on the beach and being kissed by the sun; from the silence and almost hiding and hibernating
(I certainly wish I could do that most part of the winter) to SHINING. the most glorious version of you.
In April I will lead a *Free* April SHINE Challenge. We will transit together from the winter slumber (I always want to bear up!) to the sun filled summer (yuppie, it's coming!).
You will get every day emails from me (30 in total) or you can tune in to my blog for every day inspiration. We can do some energetic work and I will encourage you to eat healthier and drink lots of green yummy stuff (and you can even make it a different color!) .
