Spring tantrums + the magic in radical decisions that come in small packages

 Expansion * Friction * Growth 

 Spring is that time of year when the sun starts to shine on the seeds that were planted; new ideas, stories and ways of being in the world crave breathing space.

Working so hard to emerge through the thawing ground,
there’s tension between the old and new. 

You may find yourself deeply yearning for room for growth, have wild desires to clean out your closets and throw out just about everything you sense is blocking your path. Spring can be an oddly intense time, and understanding that there is a very powerful natural cycle at work may help to curb your decision to toss it all aside, pack your bags and head for the nearest airport.

I too have been experiencing what I have come to recognize is a 

Easter weekend came with a big-ass full moon and eclipse, and I swung the pendulum between throttling the Easter Bunny and running away with him. Since then, I’ve thrown out, recycled, given away and burned just about everything I’ve gotten my hands on. I’ve considered selling my house and dreamt often of white space and beaches.

I’ve had to remind myself on several occasions that this is not mid-life crisis version 7.6 – it’s just Spring …

the season when Mother Nature calls you to simplify,
to listen carefully to what your life is calling you to focus on
and to create the space required for the fruition of all that has been cultivating beneath the winter ground.

What to do when Spring fever hits?

Well, I’ve been a BIG radical decision maker my whole life. I’ve moved countries and changed identities in a matter of weeks. Quit jobs and launched businesses. I’ve gone from long blonde to skinhead and pierced from head to toe, all in one night.

And I’ve learned over the years that the most powerful, radical decisions come in small packages. The small shifts. The quiet, sacred contracts made between you and your soul. 


Saying no

Letting the story go

Carving out an hour a day to play

Waking up early to give your soul the silence to be heard

Honouring your boundaries

Returning to your yoga mat

Deep breaths

 The magic and your freedom is held in this space.    
So, if you are experiencing your own Spring Tantrum, know you are not alone.

Embrace the power and flow of the season, let go of that stuff that no longer serves you,
and, one small radical decision at a time, step into that new sacred soil.
