Today is the spring equinox; it heralds the arrival of spring, and symbolically represents the energy of new beginnings. The Morning Glory is a flower that yields its bloom typically in the morning. Each day brings the opportunity to reveal to the world its unique beauty. And while its bloom will most likely wither before the day is done, the promise of a rebirth awaits at sunrise.
You have the ability to define each moment as your morning; each now can become the time you choose to bloom and reveal the you within. What is standing in your way? For many of us, it is the fear of what we will lose or leave behind. But consider your teacher the Morning Glory. It thinks not of the loss of its withered bud. It knows that its time has passed, and grieves not but looks forward to the unfolding of itself in the new day.
So today, what morning do you choose? Maybe it’s taking a class, taking a walk, or taking a chance. As Mattie J.T. Stepanek encouraged, reveal your “heartsongs” – the “gifts that reflect each person’s unique reason for being.”
Morning GloryA beginning will Ensue As it was meant To be A cycle that With laughter Will Erase all memory Of times of unruly Unrest Past indiscretions Too Once the slate is All cleaned up There’s nothing more To do But create new Life among the fields Of morning glory To reunite the all Inclusive path of Ever growing With the Choices that we make It is the lesson now Incorporate your one true Song with beauty That abounds…. Breathe easy all For soon you’ll Feel what you’ve been Longing for Love and truth abounding Freely with the Morn.
