I woke up last Monday morning to a backyard that was going through a transformation. What had been a quiet, drab and windy weekend outside was transformed into a new version of somewhere over the rainbow. The sun was out, a pair of Mallard ducks were floating in the pool, the bees were all over my Grevillea Long John tree and a hummingbird, two crows and two sparrows were building nests all over the yard.
I couldn’t believe it! Spring had definitely arrived and it was mesmerizing, filling me energy and the need to create and get going again with my plans for the future.
The message was clear: I needed to reinforce and expand my nest as well. A nest of achievements that still needed to be considered. Plans undone, work not finished. I needed to stop procrastinating, to bring my creative plans and ideas to fruition. I had given birth to these ideas. I wanted to guide them to fulfillment. The birds were producing a nest and their every move had meaning and intention. They were also being driven by something bigger than themselves
