Happy Monday my friends,

As we jump into spring and prepare to celebrate the Easter holiday this weekend,  which in many cultures and religions,  is considered a resurrection or rebirth, our message today will focus a new outlook or growth in our own lives.
A FULL LIFE
“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture and, if possible, speak a few reasonable words.” (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

There are many simple, wonderful experiences readily accessible to us everyday. A few minutes listening to a favorite piece of music, reading a favorite book, or writing in a journal can be more pleasurable and fulfilling than activities requiring much more extravagant expenditures of our time and money.

NOTE TO SELF:
I will allow myself a few moments of pleasure and peace today. Maybe I’ll visit a museum. Or maybe I’ll listen to music. Whatever I do, I’ll make sure I experience it fully. (Linda Picone)
Each of us should strive to awaken. Awaken! Take heed, do not squander your life. (Dogen Zenji)
Each moment of the year has its own beauty, a picture which was never before and shall never be seen again. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stare at the thorns oblivious of the rose. (Kahlil Gibran)
Wishing everyone a great week and a Happy Easter holiday.
