The Think Tank Thursday #86-Rebirth

Welcome March, I love the references of this month. How we talk about March's arrival, in like a lion out like a lamb, perhaps vice versa.  March has it's Ides, the beginning of spring, and sometimes, Easter graces us in this month. As the season changes, it has a lots of fits and false starts. I think of this month's weather being the most unpredictable. As Earth is working her magic for Mother Nature's rebirth, we feel the stir of new beginnings. Rebirth is change, growth, but it can mean so much more.

“I give you this to take with you:
Nothing remains as it was. If you know this, you can
begin again, with pure joy in the uprooting." 
― Judith Minty

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
Eckhart Tolle

                       "Change is growth. For me it has been a very spiritual and musical rebirth."
                                                                    -Lenny Kravitz
