When I woke up this morning, I started to wonder about Easter. I thought about all the religious implications that this holiday brings and how that transfers into my own life.
In the Christian faith, we recognize Easter as the day Jesus Christ rose from the dead. If we stop for a minute to look at the root of the word resurrection we see resurrect, which literally means to rise from the dead or return to life.
As a self-proclaimed optimist, I am always striving to live life on the sunny side. Easter breathes positive energy into all of us. Maybe it’s a combination of the sugar-induced high we get from the Easter Bunny, the warm weather and bright clothes, or the extra time with loved ones – but whatever the reason may be, there is no denying that the Easter season brings out the best in all of us.
Regardless of your religious beliefs, take this Easter as an opportunity to let yourself return to life. Take a lesson from the innocence of Green Gables where Anne Shirley reminds us, “Tomorrow is always fresh, with no mistakes in it!”
Take a fresh look on your life this Easter and allow yourself to be fully alive –
with no dead weight holding you back.
And, let’s face it; life is just better in pastels.
