When YOU release rigidity and instead become like water, your journey becomes a reward. You control your destiny. Mother Nature herself is constantly changing, flowing, adjusting. The weather in the springtime is a constant variable – one that creates a hopeful, easy-going and patient attitude…the promise that good things await, Mother Nature–one woman whom we will never control. When we enjoy what she offers at each moment, we are in synch with the energy of the earth and the universe… we arrive exactly where we should be.
