Propel yourself into victory with these 31 March love letters

March love letters – This month’s daily love letters draw inspiration from lessons learned in the battlefield – mentally, emotionally…and (somewhat) literally.

Master the art of war with these 31 March love letters. We’ll work on your strategy, assess the journey, do battle, wage a war, and wave the white flag – all in the span of a single page.


Week # 1

The first week of March is a short one – but an important one! These three March love letters will facilitate your self-care strategy for the weeks ahead.


1. re: care

reinforce the meaning of your daily movements.

understand why you do what you do –

transforming the “have to” into the “get to.”

Love,

You.

2. Collections

the life of a collector is a tireless one –

of limited open space and frequent back aches.

for a collector – enlightenment is achieved at their garage sale.

what collections would you surrender (at a discounted price)?

Love,

You.

3. Wait Training

endurance is the power of patience.

disregard the outcomes – exercise mindfully.

Love,

You.

building routines-

a push

through the most uncertain highway nights.

always with you: in shimmering bits of green.

Week three of our March love letters are all about doing battle – learn strategies to deal with your struggles, tip the scales, and discover why winning is not always what it seems.

You.

and abandon the ego.

engage and grow.

Love,

You.  

14. Fatigue Call

break from the day to

mend all your fences,

sort out achievements,

and travel expenses.

you are a wonder.

your mode is persistence:

both, in times of peace –

and in times of resistance.

Love,

You.  

15. Daybreak

eyes ascending to the apex of the sun –

tipping over the horizon:

a soft spoken “hello.”

a reminder that the world is waking.

Love (through sunset and beyond),

You.

rest, water, and light –  

collecting and combining.

You.

slow or swift:

always moving –

always forward.

Week # 4

In our fourth week of March love letters, we explore the ins and outs of war. Use these poems and quotes to assert yourself in the field and command respect – remaining empathetic through the process.


18. The Path to Victory

the pathway to success is paved with defeat:

defeated failure.

defeated enemies.

defeated doubts.

Love,

You.  

19. Readiness

readiness is not your ability to defend –

rather, it is your ability to remain open.

be ready – be open.

Love,

You.  

20. Trenches

holes of our own making

are often the hardest to climb out of –

but offer insights into what we fear the most

and why.

climb out of your trenches –

learn, grow, and conquer.

Love,

You.

21. After the Spring Equinox

heavy breaths begin to dissipate –

becoming dewdrops on fresh earth.

snowmelt accelerates into blooms of poppies and rose…

and fragrance.

you face your front door with the anticipation of sun-soaked days

and the time between furnace and a/c.

spring has sprung – so should you.

Love,

You.  

22. Anthems

an anthem,

as you may have known…

is:

only a song –  

if you sing it alone.

Love,

You.

23. A Call to Retreat

great loss often coincides with great victory.

consider where you could leave with more –

through mindful retreat.

Love,

You.

24. Progress

sustainable progress is:

passion + a safe space to fail.

take time to do the math.

Love,

You.  


Week # 5

Our March love letters conclude with a few words on peaceful retreat. Learn when it’s best to wave the white flag, apologize, and create partnerships for better day-to-day operations.


25. What Grows When the Dust Settles

not all battles are black and white

or need to be won or lost.

compromises don’t need to be sacrifices-

but a willingness to meet in the middle

where all can prosper.

Love,

You.

26. Trust the Process

in times of conflict…

focus on gratitude.

peace is soon to follow.

you just have to trust the process.

Love,

You.

27. Parley

into the fields of dust

and haze.

across the divide –

your white flag waves.

a gesture of calm

throughout the land.

sustained,

a waving open hand.

Through love and and war and peace,

You.

28. Surrender

surrender is not a failure – it is a faith.

Love,

You.

29. Stones (a haiku)

stones in the ocean –

jagged steps of sediment,

worn smooth by the waves.

(you are surrounded by water. be smooth.)

Love,

You.  

30. Into the multiverse.

you are a paradox –

multiple dimensions, forming a single being.  

you: at every angle. every shade of daylight.

here you are.

Love,

You.

31. Evening Colors

a blend of purple, light blue and pink,

surround the sun – beginning to sink.

a collage of all you did to test…

the ease of sleep – the sweetness of rest.

and as you dissolve from day to night,

resist anticipation for tomorrow’s light.

for now is the only moment existing.

a moment for gratitude, patience and listening.

Love,

You.
