I love spring it’s the time where the winter cold goes away, but the 100 degree temperature doesn’t yet show it’s face. Daylight saving means the sunshine stays out longer, oh and let me not forget crawfish season!!! Spring just feels like a time of renewal. Many people feel this way about January, setting resolutions and such, but Spring is that time when I stop bring scared of January’s goals, stop procrastinating on the dreams I want to be realities, stop wanting things to happen, and start making them happen. It’s the time when, after a few months of reflection about my life and emotions, that I get needed clarity. Things just begin bloom!!
The thing about flowers blooming in the Spring is that they bring so much joy to others. Maybe it’s the pretty colors or the contrast of going from bare trees to full ones, or the seemingly unexpectedness of a field of flowers on the side of the freeway, but unless a person’s heart is cold, Spring’s bloom in nature can’t help but bring a smile to someone’s life.
Can you relate? What’s something you’ve been keeping from blooming in your life? Whether it be a career, hobby, love, happiness, relationships, or whatever else, there’s something in you waiting to bloom and have a positive affect on at least one other person. Now of course blooming requires letting go of some dead weeds in your life, but you can handle that too! Don’t be scared. You’ve procrastinated long enough. Go out and BLOOM darlings!
