As Easter and Passover come through once again, and we rejoice in renewal- I am surprised by my need to be comforted by rhythmic rituals. I am not a Christian, so it is more for me about spiritual renewal and embracing the change from cold frozen to warming growth. I wait and poke, and hope. Spiritual stasis and status quo to movement through to renewal.
I am reading a lot about change, managing it, and finding your way through, but the choice of how to do so is up to you (me):
"It's as if you are reaching out to life with a closed fist rather than an open hand, clinging tightly to the old, instead of being receptive to something new."
Survivors need to learn to see through new eyes, so we can "learn strategies that will develop our stamina, give us a robust attitude towards change, and teach us the flexibiity that is necessary for swimming with the ebb and flow of life's currents." from Picking Up the Pieces, Magee and Scalzo.
If you like the bunny, here's to eggs, and spring. If you have been passed over, En shallah. Yay.
Life is short. Enjoy. Feast. Forgive. See with new eyes.
