March is a month of hopes and promises of new life starting to shoot up and warm days whispering in the distance.
Embrace the weather
It seems to rain a lot in March and I think the rain is to be embraced with the glee of a child. Puddles are to be strode through a little too fast (and jumped in if you are feeling high spirited!)
Watch your favourite films
Because it’s March there will still be frosty days too when you can snuggle under blankets and watch lovely old familiar movies without feeling at all guilty. For me? Well I would watch The Wizard of Oz, Roman Holiday, The Sound of Music, Meet the Fockers, Flashdance and Big. Eclectic I know! Simple, funny, singalong, memory films. And oh I couldn’t miss Beaches and The Way We Were, I would snuggle in my blanket and have a big old weep.
Treat yourself to time with your favourite films and music they will make you feel so good.
Last week I wrote a blog post about my 8 favourite songs (my deserrt island discs) and do you know just bringing them back into my life and to the forefront of my mind made me happy for days.
‘Love Baby, Love’
Celebrate Mother’s Day
My mum is in heaven but still I celebrate her on Mothers day and everyday for the love and care and kindness she raised me with. Mother’s day is a beautiful day all about about honouring and respecting the mothers who loved us . If your own mother wasn’t there for you maybe there is another woman who guided you who you want to give thanks to?
A little bunch of March’s wonderful daffodils and a letter of gratitude and love make a simple and most wonderful gift
Prepare for the spring
Towards the end of this month (20 March to be exact ) Spring arrives and with it animals wale up and flowers begin to flourish. Blossom is on the trees, daylight lasts longer and we all wake up a little more. We have planted some seeds in preparation for days of salads and alfresco dining and we have put out food for the birds.
Simple things indeed but how lovely is the anticipated pleasures of a garden filled with song and vegetables we have grown ourselves on our plates.
I wish you a beautiful month full of simple ideas for a rich life
