Blue Beauty I find on my walk. This blue though! 💙💙💙 You know it’s my walk. I used to blame others for my walk. If my husband said he wanted to go, then changed his mind and didn’t want to go, therefore I didn’t go… But I’m learning it’s MY walk. My goals. No one else’s. And I choose to see what I see on my walk. This year all I’m seeing is beautiful blooming flowers sharing their beauty. God is doing a new thing in my heart and blooms are bursting forth and I pray it’s beautiful to whoever noticed. My goal this month is 100 miles! Here I go! #itsmywalk#choosetoseebeauty#walkingwithzuzu#walkingoffmywaist#blossomandbloom#burstforth

I've had a pretty shitty week of illness and pain thanks to trying the Mirena coil after having years of peace and no pain from the good old copper coil! Coupled with some weird gastric thing on Saturday and Sunday and I felt totally pi**ed off with the world. Anyway the Mirena is now gone, the pains are gone and the sickness has gone and I feel pretty much 80% of myself back today. Tomorrow I shall BURST FORTH to a good 95% I'm hoping and am looking forward to being back in the driving seat!! Thanks to everyone for being patient with me this last week.
She doesn’t play it safe, this Spring.
She doesn’t question whether she is wanted in the world.
She doesn’t hold back or retreat from appearing in her full glory and saying “here I am, world!” As women, as entrepreneurs... pressing into greatness, we have this question before us... do I burst forth or do I hold back?
Will I be accepted? Will I be seen?
I say... Let us explode into this world with the Joy of Newness that is our unique mark on the world.
Let us fight for our place with the grace and playfulness of Spring that says, “ready or not, here I come!” And guess what?
We are always grateful she did.
I rogue planted this peony bush and now it’s busting out these intoxicating flowers. (Sweetest smelling blooms) Not only is my heart bursting with joy at the beauty of this ONE flower, my sense are trembling with anticipation of each additional flower that will burst forth this season. This is also a metaphor. Carry on. #burstforth#bloomwhenitstime#bebrilliant#beyou#nature#beauty#peony
The quickening of spring is found not just in ourselves, but in nature too.
The rivers run faster with run-off from the mountains and we move more quickly with our own endless list of things to do.
Just remember, like nature, this time for us is part of a bigger cycle too.
Know that there will a languishing and a meandering rhythm to return to eventually.
Acknowledge the bud that bursts forth, at first so upright and certain, will soften come summer and bare fruit to thank the sun.
Perhaps we'll embrace this rushing forth then, and our own just keeping up with it too.... Knowing it's natural. Trusting we are this nature too. ~ Sarah Norrad
First signs of SPRING in the northern hemisphere!!!
Who else is ready for the longest winter EVER to finally shift into spring? 🙋
I'm reminded that we can actually speed up our manifestations when we slow things down. .
That dormant, latent energy of your dreams and desires that's hiding just below the surface? Let it build! Let it create such a tidal wave inside of you until it has no choice but to coming bursting forth.
Be like the longest winter ever that creates SUCH incredible desire for spring, that when it *finally* comes, it's the most glorious thing ever in existence.
Today was one of those days where I never turned on the music because the singing birds and cooing doves and tapping woodpecker outside my window filled the day with the simple sound of life beginning to stir again. Spring takes awhile to come fully alive here in Wisconsin. Our pastor described our current stage as the muddy days of spring on Sunday morning. Sometimes the snow creeps back in and the frost makes its way back to our rooftops, but before long we find that the new life can’t be contained in the frozen earth any longer and slivers of green burst forth from the ground. I found a few of these green slivers of joy in the yard today, where the Daylilies are planted. I can’t help but think about Spring in the Christian life as well. Our frozen seasons often seem to last forever and it’s so easy to forget that as God’s people there is always life bubbling below the surface, just waiting to spring out. It’s easy to bury our joy and cover it with hurt. It’s easy to forget that we once planted life where we now can only see the darkness of the dirt covering its surface. But just as Jesus burst from the grave on Easter morning, He promises you are going to burst through too. There is always the promise and the hope of Spring in Jesus. He never forgets what He has planted in us. He never leaves us in the dark. #easter#spring#hope#grace#newlife#burstforth#everydaymiracles#handwashedgrace#infertility#adoption#pregnantafterinfertility#thefathersheart#helives#welivetoo
Spring is stirring.
As we have descended into the deep of winter, everything has slowed. How we spend our time and what we ruminate on has been in careful balance. Rest. Recover.
Below the snow, in the ground, stored energy is preparing to burst through with the first outward sign of spring. Similarly, what in you is getting ready? What has been bouncing around inside of you, becoming re-shaped? What seed have you been nurturing, willing it to germinate once the time has come?

Topic: Enlarging your Capacity for Impact
A lot of people have funny mindsets when it comes to the things of God. Some people say "You know the work of God is not necessarily mine, its just a thing I do voluntarily because I'm just being nice." This attitude reflects unfortunately in all other areas of their lives because their capacity for impact does not expand. *If Capacity is not enlarged, impact will be limited. If capacity is not adequate there won't be room to contain enlargement.*
One of the other ways to enlarge your capacity for impact is to; *Take Ownership for the Assignment given.* (1st Sam 17:17) All David was required to do is to go deliver food to his brothers and to also see how they are fairing. A very straight forward assignment; To give them food and come back with a report of how they are fairing over there. Yes, David did the job but he didn't stop there. Along the line he encountered what required him to do more. Having observed how they were doing (dreadfully afraid of Goliath's threat) he took it upon himself to deal with the situation because he didn't want to go back home with a bad report to his father and at the end, he won significant success freedom for his brothers, the people and even himself. But note that if he had gone back home to his father after delivering the food, to give a report of how they are truly doing as instructed, he won't have committed any sin, but his destiny would have been either delayed till another opportunity to #BurstForth . When you are give an assignment, do it as though you were born for that cause alone. Do it with such ownership and sense of responsibility such that people around you can attest to your true commitment and wonder how you even do it.
David Lee: In chaos, there is tranquility; in tranquility, chaos. As humans, we are in turns moved by the passions of love, lifted to new heights of ecstasy, lost in the throes of passion, driven by the forge of anger, drowned in a sea of sadness, absorbed in quiet contemplation, electrocuted by panic, wrapped in a miasma of darkness, inspired by the light of the sacred, or mystified by the mundane as it is rendered poetic by the subtle movements of the deeper mind. When we approach fear with curiosity and embrace our pain as a friend, we find that our capacity to love and to grow expands. We seek the undiscovered and relish in novelty. Yet sometimes when we reach farther than we ever have before, we fail to grasp onto that on which we have set our sights. Even if events occur in our favor, it is still possible to fail. Yet in the ensuing night of the soul, when all seems to conspire against us, it is still possible to be saved, or to save ourselves. This is the great power of the human condition: to question, to create, to continue.
What part of you is looking at the stars? Follow that part, and you might discover that all along there has been a seed growing from deep inside you. May you find the kindness to provide that thirsty sprout the water it requires to burst forth and bloom.

Omg, so fast!! This day went soooo quickly. I pulled these cards this morning and look what time it is. Things change fast. You may feel like it's a speeding train. You may feel it's a good time for a clapback. Often we accept poor outcomes from the universe over and over, until people in our universe think it's the norm. Then suddenly💥💥💥 "Not one more minute!" You're sensitive. You need a little self-care and a little less "excuse me please!!" In some cases, you may need to hunker down and face your fears, struggle with your demons. Struggling with your Ego does not mean struggling against your need to boast and take over. The Ego wants to keep you comfortable. The Ego wants you to never change. So when a problem arises, the ego can say "they don't get it" "they always take over" "they always leave it up to me" "I'm not good enough" "forget it, this is too hard" "I don't belong here" "this is uncomfortable- RUN!" We can even start to mix up our intuition with our ego. Intuition is a clear and deep sound. The ego creates a more...thumping, wretching, bananas kind of reaction in your body. You need to breathe. You need to centre. Check in and then react to your circumstances.
You are beginning a great process. There's an opening here. You will burst wide open but you have to bear some discomfort first. I'm with you. You are not alone.
