Despite the frigid temperatures and having left over snow on the ground, Spring if officially here! Yesterday as I was having my afternoon tea, I noticed my tea bag had one of those little quotes attached to the tag. By the way, I’ve noticed I actually look forward to those little messages. I enjoy them more than fortune cookies these days. Do you? Now back to my herbal tea message. It said “Earth Laughs in Flowers” by Ralph Waldo Emerson. I thought how perfect with Spring just a day away. It’s such a fine reminder that yes, our earth provides us with so many beautiful gifts regardless of the seasons. Spring comes with a such a strong sense of excitement. Warmer weather, sunny days, long walks and why not.. fun styles to try as well. Putting seasonal allergies aside, you can’t help but appreciate the early signs of flowers, plants and leaves budding on the trees. The colors get brighter, the daylight stays with us just a bit longer. Spring is a wonderful reminder of new beginnings. This is the time to shed our old skin, past habits and thought patterns and just embrace renewed energies that this season brings with it. If you had some new years resolutions and perhaps it has fallen off your radar, that’s okay. Let that go and start over! That’s the best part of a new season, it gives you the motivation to refresh your goals, see things in a different way or maybe just try a new approach. Take some time to reconnect with yourself and see what parts of your life could use a boost or recharge. Is it career goals, new activities you would like to try like a new hobby or perhaps just visiting new places you’ve never been to before. Start somewhere, anywhere. So treat yourself to to the magic of the outdoors, leave those winter blues behind and start planting new seeds that start from within you. So readers, what is your favorite part of this new season? Leave your comments below and share what are you looking forward to?
Happy Spring Equinox.
