Whilst Easter is one of the holiest events on the Christian calendar it can also be a time for all of us to give thought to new beginnings.
In the northern hemisphere Spring is in the air and with Spring comes birth and life. At this time, we can reflect on our life and what we would like to change. Life is always evolving and so too our life and our experiences are ever changing.
Easter and the beginning of Spring is a good time to start anew. We don’t have to settle for things that we don’t like. Nothing is constant. Nothing stays the same.
“We can make positive changes in our life and even start over again.”
