I am so excited for spring. And, guys, this is new for me- I am not typically anxious for spring to come. I’ve always been a winter & fall girl, loving the colder weather and nights spent out by the fire pit. But this year- I don’t know why exactly- I am so excited for the warmer weather, for the trees to grow back it’s leaves, and for the Blue Ridge Parkway to actually stay open.
I’ve never been a huge decorator when it comes to different seasons and/or events (except Christmas. Always Christmas), but in our small apartment I do want to celebrate each season, along with the unique gifts each season brings. Spring, for example, makes me think of rejuvenation, of new life.
It seems so fitting, actually, to celebrate spring in this new home. I feel fresh, I feel rejuvenated, I feel like I will actually enjoy these warmer days without longing for the winter months.
Honestly, I want to approach every season the same way as I see spring this year- full of excitement, full of life, full of possibility. Whether that season is summer, or whether it’s a season of financial difficulty. Whether it’s autumn, or whether it’s a season of loneliness. Whether I ‘feel’ it or not, I want to celebrate where I am at.
There is something to learn from every season of life we go through, something to hold on to that grow us and make us better. Something to give us hope for a future.
This spring, instead of dreading the heat of summer and the slowness that comes with it, I am enjoying where I am at right now. I am enjoying the songbirds, I am enjoying the warmer air, and I will breathe deep and meet life at its slower beat.
