Life is Fragile. Handle With Care

It’s spring time. New life is popping up all around us. It’s delicate.  We need to handle it with care.

“Be gentle”, we tell children.  “Soft touch.”

Sometimes, though, when something new is happening, even we, as adults, forget to be careful, and accidentally step on this delicate new life.

But, it’s not just new life that should be protected.

All life is fragile.

Any life can be, quickly, broken with a single step.

So before you step on someone’s life, remember:

Watch where you’re stepping.

Tread lightly.  

Be gentle.  

Soft touch.

Life is fragile.

Handle it with care.

It’s Spring. Time For A New Beginning

duckIt’s Spring.


 Time for a new beginning.

The season is spring.  It always conjures up images of new beginnings, but it doesn’t have to be spring time to begin again.  We can begin, again, every day.  Every time we make a choice, it’s a new beginning.  Think about it:

  • every morning
  • every time we open our mouth to say something
  • every time we choose
    • to buy or not to buy,
    • to exercise or not to exercise,
    • to be happy or not to be happy,
    • to accept or not accept what is.

Spring time is a reminder that we always have the ability to begin again.  It’s about choosing how we frame any event, every moment; how we choose to live our life. Choose humility.  Choose healthy habits.  Choose happiness.  Choose acceptance.

Today is the day.  Feel the warmth of the sun.  Open yourself up to a new life.  It’s time for a new beginning.
