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.
