With a looming global health crisis and political conflict around the world, in these uncertain times, more than ever, we need to stay resilient, positive and hopeful. As we shed our winter layers, and the sun begins to warm our spirits, embrace rebirth by practicing the art of manifestation. Bring your goals to life by focusing on what it will take to make your ideas a reality. Learn new skills, take risks and conquer new challenges.
With Daylight Saving time beginning on March 8th, longer days welcome more activity and celebrations. Celebrate the first day of spring on March 19th in the Northern Hemisphere. Get in the spirit this year by commemorating the spring equinox in your own culture. The colorful Hindu holiday Holi is celebrated beginning March 8th. The Irish holiday St.Patrick’s Day, also known as the Feast of St.Patrick is celebrated on March 17th. This holiday was originally created to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland and the Roman Catholic feast day. The Persian celebration of the spring equinox, Nowruz happens on March 21st.
For most around the country, green markets are a season or two away. Longer days, however, beckons the desire for celebratory gatherings and home-cooked meals. We have a few suggestions utilizing winter and early spring staples. Welcome spring and wow your guests by making Food 52s Clams with Cream, Faro, and Baby Kale recipe. For a meatless meal option, for St. Patrick’s Day, try Martha Stewart’s easy to make Creamed Green Cabbage and to top it off for a sweet treat, try Food Network’s Meyer Lemon Curd Tart with Candied Lemon Peels.
When it comes to rebirth, continue to learn the practice of sustainability in your day to day lives. Keep track of the products you use, bring your own bags to stores, and continue to source brands that make an attempt to bring sustainable initiatives into their business models. Rebirth is also about bringing your ambitious ideas to fruition. Bet on yourself and embrace your dreams.
