Spring finally arrived in the last couple of weeks at my home, as you can see. Our neighborhood went from dreary to blossoming in a matter of days and our azaleas weren’t far behind. The blooms have been really lovely this year, which I was happy to see.
I’m so glad spring finally arrived because I have been desperately longing for some warmer weather. This month’s blog topic is Letting Spring Blossom, and it’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about, even if it hasn’t translated to written posts. It has not been the greatest month for me and so I have been trying to see what I could do differently to make things go a bit better. I realized spring doesn’t have to be something that just happens in nature ~ it can be a time for people to bloom again, too. The last week or so, I’ve tried to follow spring’s example and see which dormant areas in my life need attention to bloom again and which need to be let go of completely. Like in nature, some things in life are meant to bloom for only a season, while others, with a little TLC, come back stronger and lovelier each spring. Occasionally, we all need a little time to sort out which is which.
So stop and enjoy the beauty blossoming around you this spring, and if you need to clear your head a bit like me, perhaps spring can be your inspiration, too.
