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.”
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)?
3. Wait Training
endurance is the power of patience.
disregard the outcomes – exercise mindfully.
Week # 2
This batch of March love letters will prepare and guide you on your journey – to battle or beyond. Use these letters to lighten your travel load, discover new paths to victory, and find the best pit stops along the way.
4. Don’t Stop Believin’ (the haiku)
don’t stop believin.’
the record begins to play –
5. Free Climbing
there are no ropes.
your movement is a matter of choice –
a mix of lateral and vertical.
6. Flip Book
and a pull.
until stacked to reveal their building momentum
towards a larger picture
7. Mile Markers
reflective friends light your way –
through the most uncertain highway nights.
always with you: in shimmering bits of green.
8. What is success?
success is not the means to an end –
it feeds the desire to continue.
9. The minimum requirements of a dream:
close your eyes.
connect to your breath.
you don’t take a vacation to stay in the hotel.
Week # 3
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.
acknowledge your battles –
don’t invalidate them.
they are as real as you are.
12. Lose some – win some.
in times of loss –
there is always knowledge to gain.
13. From conflict to Growth
conflict becomes growth when you:
learn a different language,
and abandon the ego.
engage and grow.
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.
eyes ascending to the apex of the sun –
tipping over the horizon:
a soft spoken “hello.”
a reminder that the world is waking.
a request for you to show up.
Love (through sunset and beyond),
16. In times of repair.
rest, water, and light –
collecting and combining.
at peace with patience.
17. Onward March
slow or swift:
always moving –
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:
readiness is not your ability to defend –
rather, it is your ability to remain open.
be ready – be open.
holes of our own making
are often the hardest to climb out of –
but offer insights into what we fear the most
climb out of your trenches –
learn, grow, and conquer.
21. After the Spring Equinox
heavy breaths begin to dissipate –
becoming dewdrops on fresh earth.
snowmelt accelerates into blooms of poppies and rose…
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.
as you may have known…
only a song –
if you sing it alone.
23. A Call to Retreat
great loss often coincides with great victory.
consider where you could leave with more –
through mindful retreat.
sustainable progress is:
passion + a safe space to fail.
take time to do the math.
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.
26. Trust the Process
in times of conflict…
focus on gratitude.
peace is soon to follow.
you just have to trust the process.
into the fields of dust
across the divide –
your white flag waves.
a gesture of calm
throughout the land.
a waving open hand.
Through love and and war and peace,
surrender is not a failure – it is a faith.
29. Stones (a haiku)
stones in the ocean –
jagged steps of sediment,
worn smooth by the waves.
(you are surrounded by water. be smooth.)
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.
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.
