On Easter and New Beginnings

Happy Easter Darlings!
Yes I know it’s been like forever. February was a mess (was ill, on and off), and well, March brought it’s madness on many levels, but I’m glad to be alive.
It’s Easter and that means so many things. First, it means that we all get the chance to start afresh, new beginnings, fresh oil. A lot of times, life deals us heavy blows and we often find detours on our maps, but Easter says “keep it moving”.
When you think that no one has got your back, Easter says “Jesus loves you enough to give you everything”. It’s a reminder that there is always someone willing to help you carry your Cross, if you will just let them know you need help. Easter is a reminder that no matter how many times we fall, you can rise from the ashes! Easter means that provided you are alive, you can still win. And it’s okay to forgive yourself and the ones who hurt you; and to move on from that place to a place of happiness. Easter offers you a clean slate, take it. As Paulo Coelho wrote in The Alchemist, “As he mused about these things, he realized that he had to choose between thinking of himself as the poor victim of a thief and as an adventurer in quest of his treasure”
In the new quarter, there’s a whole new lease of life that you can take advantage of. Do the things that you only vaguely considered, because if you can think it, you can do it. There’s so much that life has to offer- friendship, happiness, success, love and so much more. By all means, take it, you deserve it. You just never know when the whole universe will conspire to favour you.
And bursting in this new lease of life, I hope to update my blog more often, twice a month minimum, so help me God. I hope what I write is well received and feedback is given.
So, in the meantime, Happy Easter again. When you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance.
And talking about new beginnings, did you notice my new domain name?
