Hello May - It’s the Month of Spirit of Renewal

The chill and gray of winter has nearly all but faded away and the days are growing longer!  May emerges as a beacon of hope and renewal every year. It's a month where nature wakes up, bursting with vibrant colors and life energy. In the words of Lailah Gifty Akita, "May is a month of rebirth, of renewed vitality and energy."

For me, May holds a special significance beyond its natural beauty. It’s the month that welcomed me to motherhood with the birth of my guy Nathaniel, 29 years ago this year. And it also marks the anniversary of a pivotal decision in my life—to become a life and health coach. It was a decision born out of a period of grayness in my world, where I found myself lost with feelings of sadness and angst around empty nesting and unaware of my sense of purpose. May has become a symbol of my own new beginnings, a time when I chose to embrace change and forge a new path forward.

Life is full of changes, big and small. But every change brings a chance for growth and improvement. Embracing change means being open-minded and flexible when things around us are uncertain. It's about seeing change as an opportunity to learn and become better versions of ourselves.

One way we can thrive through change is by nurturing well-being. This means actively caring for our body, mind, and spirit. Eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, and getting enough rest are all part of nurturing well-being. But it's also about finding joy in what we do, spending time with loved ones, and taking moments to relax and recharge.

And when opportunities come our way, it's important to seize them. Opportunities can lead to new experiences, happiness, and success. Seizing opportunities means being brave enough to try new things, even if they're outside of our comfort zone. It's about taking risks and believing in ourselves, knowing that every opportunity is a chance to grow and thrive.

By embracing change, nurturing well-being, and seizing opportunities, we can navigate life's ups and downs with confidence and resilience. We can become the best versions of ourselves, ready to face whatever comes our way.

Hop, Skip, and Jump: Three Ideas to Start Creating Change in Your Life this Month

Set Intentions: Take a moment to check in on what you truly desire in life. Whether it's improved health, deeper relationships, or greater fulfillment in your career, setting clear intentions can help you align your actions with your aspirations. Write down your intentions and revisit them regularly to stay focused and motivated.

Embrace Daily Rituals: Add in small, meaningful rituals into your daily routine to cultivate a sense of purpose and connection. Whether it's starting your day with a gratitude practice, taking a daily walk in nature, or dedicating time to pursue a hobby you love, these rituals can serve as anchor points amidst life's busyness, helping you stay grounded and centered.

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone: Growth often lies beyond the boundaries of our comfort zone. Challenge yourself to try something new or take a leap of faith towards a goal that excites you. Whether it's signing up for a class, volunteering for a cause you believe in, or initiating a difficult conversation, stepping outside your comfort zone can open doors to new opportunities and experiences.

I'm filled with a sense of gratitude for the abundance and joy that surrounds me.  For me May serves as a reminder to appreciate the beauty in life's simplest moments—to savor the warmth of the sun on my skin, the sweet songs of the birds, and the joy of pursuing work and play that brings fulfillment to our lives.  Gratitude has become a guiding principle in my life, starting each day with a sense of joy and contentment.

A Wish For You

As we journey through the month of May, I hope you embrace the spirit of renewal and vitality that it brings. Welcome change with open arms, cultivate your sense of vitality, seize the opportunities that come your way, and embrace gratitude for the abundance that surrounds you. May this month be a time of growth, transformation, and endless possibility.
