Spring…

th-12Here is my 20 minute stream of consciousness for Writing 101.

Today is a beautiful Spring day.  The sun is shining and the sky is blue.  The weather is finally warmer…for now.  Today was also the day I chose to take the children for their Spring walk!  An Easter holiday tradition!

I love Spring, it is my second favourite season next to Autumn.  If I could have my way the New Year would be in Spring, it would make so much more sense with all the new stuff that is happening.  Who has ever managed to start anything new on January 1st?  Those New Year resolutions never seem to work out do they?  In my opinion this is down to the time of year, the cold weather and the fact that many of us may still be a little bit hungover from the night before!  Never a good start to anything except maybe spending the day under a duvet!

The start of Spring gives us all a little hope and motivation for the warmer weather to come and everything is just starting to look beautiful.  The trees are blossoming, the birds are chirping and the sun warms our faces and hearts.  We all feel brand new and rejuvenated!  We all get warm and fuzzy over baby animals!

We plan the Spring cleaning, we clear out, de-clutter and detox.  New beginnings are happening all around us.  The days are getting longer so that we have more daylight to do all these things in.  Whenever I’m planning a big change, I always start it in the Spring.  I started this blog in the Spring, and it is helping me step by step to transform my life and my family.

All the R’s are at work – rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and re-growth.

So with all my ramblings I bid you all a very happy New Year.

  1. I love the Spring too, and I’m glad you had a chance to get outside and enjoy the sun! Your writing made me feel as though I was there enjoying it too and the imagery made me smile. I like how you mention the New Year feeling as though it should start in Spring (I agree- it would feel so much more positive!) and then sign off with ‘Happy New Year’, it seems like a nice way of rounding off your post!

  2. Good post. I enjoy Spring also and when I look around and see nature waking up I feel I have more bounce in my step.
    As far as making resolutions, isn’t it wonderful to know we can choose change at any moment in time? Because the world says Jan. 1 is the day to do it means nothing in the grand scheme of life.
    I look forward to reading more of your posts. 🙂
