I am well aware that we’ve been in the season of Spring for almost two weeks. But it’s never too late to share what I’m feeling with you guys. You see the bed of grass, you know you want to join me.
“…rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection…” according to our good friend Wikipedia and nature, Spring represents the following and much more.
It is the season of all things refreshed…this is the time of year when we literally get to see the blooming of new life. The sun lingers a little longer, the temperature warms up, butterflies come out to play, kids laughing is usually the soundtrack amongst most parks, and smiling becomes more of an accessory by instincts not choice. It is also the season of my birth…on yesterday I celebrated another year of LIVING with and on purpose. I feel younger 🙂
The concrete jungle raised me, however a part of me is a nature girl. I thrive off our natural resources; dirt (okay maybe not so much), grass, air, the sun, the moon, water in the form of a thunderstorm or waterfall, I’ll take it. I truly become excited, and it feels as if something has recharged me eternally. Matter of fact, I am sure that is what takes place. That very reason plays a huge role in why I adore this season.
Spring 2013 lasts 81 days. That’s not a lot of time. I was inspired to share what I deem my “Blooming in Spring” reminder guidelines with you. I hope you’re inspired to take advantage of these in the next 69 days before Summer kicks in.
Rebirth- a period of new life, growth or activity *Do something that hasn’t been done in a while, the weather is warmer. Ride your bike, go roller skating, go for a walk…a real one*
Rejuvenation- 1) to make (someone) feel or look young, healthy, or energetic again, 2) to give new strength or energy *Exercise more (opting for stairs verses elevator or escalator), breathe on purpose, switching up and reduce the makeup, playing music that makes me want to dance verses go on a killing spree or sit in the dark and cry. Lighten up… on everything 😉
Renewal- the state of being made new, fresh, or strong again *Change up the hair color (cut it even), toss out the clutter (papers, clothes, EXCUSES), switch out your linens to softer/brighter colors*
Resurrection- the act of causing something that had ended or been forgotten or lost to exist again, to be used again. *Jesus Christ is my reminder of the gift of new life, and the reason I never give up. It does not matter how many times I appear to have fallen, their is only one way to go when you are down. That’s UP! This blog is a representation of what has been resurrected in my literal life*
Spring has sprung…get with it!
Wikipedia didn’t tell me this one…but I believe Spring is the ultimate season for flirting…just make sure you’re respectful and it remains harmless. It’s healthy…you should try it. Those of you in committed relationships, it’s perfectly healthy to flirt with your significant other. I encourage it…*wink*
