I have a tendency to reflect and plan with the start of each season. January is rarely my time for goal setting or resolutions, rather the spring and fall tend to bring out my dreams and aspirations for improvement or a shift in my focus or energy. Did anyone else have a really long winter? I am working hard at “thinking spring”, but these dark and cloudy days make it difficult.
Spring is a logical time for renewal and for strength. While a Michigan Spring can sometimes (often) be rainy and dreary, it still brings hope. We know that sunshine and warm weather are coming soon, the days get longer, the mornings brighter. It allows us to breathe a little deeper, as we hear the birds chirping and feel the afternoons warming up.
During this long holiday weekend, when many find solace in their Holy Week and Easter traditions, take a moment to reflect on what new beginnings are presenting themselves to you.
Where will your path take you during this next season of rebirth (either figuratively or literally)?
Might you take the “road less traveled” or will you sail the route of springs past?
