Spring - and Fresh Beginnings

Real Estate Agent with Golden Girls with SW Desert Homes BR564219000

So Easter is just around the corner and holidays always make me a bit nostalgic.  Watching children with the Easter egg hunts brings me back to the inventive hunts I used to do for my kids, and even going back to my own.

One of the things that was a clear memory of my 10 year old self and beyond was, we always got a new spring outfit for Easter.  A pretty dress, maybe a hat, maybe a skirt set.

Maybe that's why I feel that echoing tug to Amazon now - hah!

But my mother always felt, and still does, that Easter signifies new beginnings, change, hope -- looking forward.

I thought that was a good mantra for my personal life and real estate career right now.

Forget (or put away) 2020 and 2021 and focus on what's ahead.

I want more get-togethers with my client friends.

I want to do more for the community.

I want to keep joy in my daily life and remember to take care of my own health to stay in good shape.  One of my friends recommended chair yoga or even online meditation.  (Doesn't a part of you always wonder if they are thinking, DO THIS NOW. I tend to pay attention when my inner circle "suggests". :)

What new things are you incorporating this spring in your life and career?  Do you have favorite Easter memories?  

One of mine is tying a string to the end of the Easter basket and then running it all over the house, with the starting point by my kids bedroom door handle.  Of course, they got old enough to just look for the end of the string heading into a cupboard or closet and circumvented the trail...figures. 

Happy Spring, Happy Easter to you.

Good Morning Cara!  What a fun and uplifting post!  I love your Mom's idea of what Easter represents new beginnings, change, hope and looking forward! I remember getting a new Easter dress, hat and shoes and ruffly socks - remember those?!!  It was a big deal to dress up for Easter. My Mom got me going on making Easter Villages one year and from then on I took over the project - I loved decorating (still do).   I've got new things happening and very much looking forward to the rest of this year.  Joy is always my number one goal. If we have that we've got it all and so much more!


Happy Easter!

I used to do special hairdos for Easter - we didn't have curling irons back then so I'd sleep in rollers -- then I couldn't get them out of the tangles the next day.  Lots of teary Easters, lol.  Easter villages - I'd love to see a photo!  and yes...you seem to have JOY covered well!  All the best, Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker   Cara

I remember as a kid, we would decorate our own "Easter Bonnets" using a paper plate with crepe paper, ribbons, and whatever else we could find that might be fun. Then we'd prance around showing them off and singing "In My Easter Bonnet, with all the frills upon it..."! Fun memories!

Hi Cara- you brought back memories for me too. I would get a new Easter dress too and I remember how much fun we had dying the eggs.

Hi Kathy Streib 

I say a lot of these egg spinners this year that you could draw stripes with.  What will they come up with next???
