Goddess of Dawn (and a smoothie recipe!)
Reform. Growth. Renewal. 🙌🏻
“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
-Rainer Maria Rilke
It’s Springtime. Springtime is a moment for growth and renewal- A time when new life comes into the world. The spring has also oftentimes signified the start of better times...which is good.
We like that. ☺️
This is the time of year when we become more open to inviting changes – both big and small – into our lives.
Globally in most cultural traditions, Spring is a time of re-birth and new beginnings.
And as we approach Easter (which is in about two weeks)- I wanted to take a moment to mention Eostre- the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, worshipped by some neopagans who associate her with various aspects related to the renewal of life. Eostre is commonly referred to as a “goddess of Dawn” based on the etymological meaning of her name and the Anglo-Saxon word for ‘dawn’. And #dawn , of course- is the sun rising over a new day. A new start. The beginning of something.
This is the BEGINNING OF SOMETHING. ⭐️
I’d like to think of myself, during this particular moment in my life, a bit like the #goddesses (or gods) of dawn.
And like a child that knows her poems by heart. ❤️
Also, This is me looking lovingly at a plant based strawberry smoothie:
A little dorky? Maybe. That’s ok. 💘
Sometimes it’s just about doing what you know is right for you.
Going back to basics. Leaving the rest behind.
As some of you have noticed (I received a decent number of “are you ok?” messages due to) my lack of social media activity lately- and I just wanted to say that yes, I’m fine.
I’m taking a minute to deal with some real stuff- stuff that’s frustrating, a bit annoying, distracting, and time consuming. And yes, #socialmedia is all these things as well.
Therefore, I made a choice and decided to pull back a bit- I will continue to do so until I have the bandwidth to fully immerse myself once again in my brand building and storytelling capabilities.
At the same time, I will continue to post recipes- because I will ALWAYS continue to cook (and blend- as I did with this delish #strawberry #smoothie pictured here).
I’ll be back. But for now- I’m focusing on my daughter, my health, and moving forward with my life after a long moment of standing still (and a few distractions here and there). Pink #smoothie recipe? Sure:
1 handful frozen strawberries
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
1 frozen banana
1/4 cup filtered water
1 tbsp shelled hemp seeds
1 tbsp #ashwagandha powder
And love. Lots and lots of love.
