Happy Groundhog Day!
I know this seems like a quirky kind of holiday, but February 2nd has been celebrated for a very long time. This day is significant because it is halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox! That means that today, we are in the middle, a place that I sometimes have difficulty being in. I am always in a rush for the next big thing, and at this moment in February, it’s easy to be hungry for Spring.
I wonder what it would be like to celebrate the inbetween. What would it be like to be happily in transition - to notice some stirrings of Spring (like some birds returning) among the layers of snow and ice?
So, today, I challenge you to notice where you are inbetween in your life and celebrate ALL that you have done to get to inbetween and celebrate all the opportunities awaiting you on your way to becoming Spring.
