Easter + Rebirth

I’m not religious but find easter to be a meaningful holiday. It has pre-christian pagan roots as a celebration of the spring as a season of rebirth – celebrating the return of what was lost (leaves, flowers, sunlight, etc). Many of our easter traditions are passed down to represent that celebration: resurrection, eggs, rabbits (screwing like bunnies and having lots of babies).

To me it represents a moment to reflect on the ability we all have to begin again. Our lives have seasons, and some are challenging. But from the darkness there’s light around the corner. And not just once a year, but every moment. And in each moment of our lives, we have the opportunity to leave the past behind and start fresh.

Slumberkins shared a piece of advice he heard: don’t believe in what day it is. The day of the week is an artificial construct. Whether it’s Friday, Sunday or Monday our intention and energy to meet it shouldn’t be dictated by what day it is. Cool thought!

Rock on, Slash!
