If at first you don’t succeed, don’t lie down and die. Get back on the horse and begin again.

I had a plan…to start my spring cleanse on the first day of spring. But I didn’t foresee the reality of having a break from being a full-time mommy (my kids are with their dad for the holiday) and that it was a perfect time to catch up socially—friends, dates, being out there and living life—which, in this city, often includes cocktails and meals…

Soooo yesterday I began again. And I feel great about it! That’s the thing about cleansing. Or any intended plan. If you set your intention and it doesn’t pan out exactly as you had hoped, be malleable and try again, with love for yourself. No self-abuse necessary.

Today is Easter and although I am Jewish by birth, I have always been connected with the energies of holy days from different spiritual faiths. TODAY is the day of resurrection!! What does that mean exactly?

1. The act of rising from the dead or returning to life. YES!

2. The state of one who has returned to life. YES, YES!!

3. The act of bringing back to practice, notice, or use. Revival. YES, YES, YES!!!

Amen.

I am with you, Jesus. I am returning again to my practice.
