Spring is Here

I can feel it in the air.

It's cool, but warm. Crisp and full of new beginnings.

The snow is melting and the ground is all muddy.
It still freezes up at night, but thaws up during the day.

The sun is out for longer because of the daylight savings, and it smells like spring as well.
I'm sure there will be a few more cold spells until it's all done, but I hope they are not very long.

Next weekend I'm moving to the new farm, the week after that I'll be done work and will be off on vacation, and then in April I'll be starting at the new place. I'm so excited to be part of a new farming community.

I need to read up on better communication... there will be 6 other people working and living there so an open mind and open heart will be necessary for a smooth integration. I can't wait!!

Mind Expanding

So, I discovered Brene Brown a while back. She is a researcher focusing on connection, shame, fear, joy, vulnerability and oh so many other things that make us human and allow us to cultivate better connections with people.

Today I found another great video from her. It's on Blame.

Here's another one on Empathy.

And to give you a better clue as to what Brene Brown is talking about, here is her amazing TED talk that went viral a few years back about Vulnerability.

If any of this speaks to you, check out her book Daring Greatly. It's a wealth of information.
