Happy Springtime!!! We have a very exciting month ahead of us. The Wellness Expo at Georgian Court is on Sunday March 23rd, and the Heart of Oneness Holistic Expo is the following weekend on March 31st. Both events are certain to be a great time and we will be there – hoping you stop by our table to say hello J. In addition to these two fabulous opportunities to get your Zen on, our calendar is packed with more events than ever before, so be sure to check it out and try something new! Last month I tried Light Language Activation at the Yoga Loft, and I am definitely glad I did even though I had no idea what to expect.
March is always one of the most exciting months of the year for me. I can’t wait to see all of my flowers again. The tulips and the crocuses are already starting to peek out of the ground, and its almost time to plat the garlic. I have a habit of biting off more than I can chew – and my garden is no exception. By mid-summer it’s generally overwhelming, but each year I plan a little better and sustain the tidy beauty a little longer. But springtime in my yard is magical, and I can’t wait to soak it in.
Just before I sat down to write this letter, I read a great article in one of my favorite magazines – Inc. It was so good, I decided it would be worthwhile to share the highlights. I think Natural Awakenings has a unique audience, and we work hard to be happy and successful, so many of you will probably appreciate these lessons too! I pulled out key pieces, but if you would like to read the entire article click here.
9 Things Happy and Successful People Do That Most Wouldn't Bother
By Marcel Schwantes Founder and Chief Human Officer, Leadership From the Core
1. Place yourself in someone else's shoes.
2. Have an insatiable curiosity.
3. Find your true purpose.
Remind yourself frequently that the purpose of your life is not to work 10 hours per day, five days per week for 30 years, then retire to a golf course in Florida. Your true purpose should be to discover your calling and bask in the joy of the journey along the way, one step at a time. In the end, your legacy is left to these two questions:
•What impact did I make on the lives of others?
•Whom did I serve and make better?
4. Practice patience.
5. Learn from wiser souls.
6. Pursue peace.
7. Build your self-awareness.
8. Be more spontaneous.
9. Accept the practice of failing forward
Good stuff! As always I want to thank everyone for your continued support. And if something looks interesting, or sounds like it could be helpful for you – please give it a try. I read a quote that I now have displayed in my kitchen “Time is running away like water” -Franz Bardon. And it is so true, so I have it there to remind myself, stop thinking about stuff and go do it! We hope to see you at the Expos, and we wish you an amazing March.
