Happy Spring to You

"Awake, thou wintry earth -Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn

Welcome to a season of new beginnings. A season where fresh starts and new outlooks are possible.

Did you ever notice that during this time of year people magically appear more pleasant? What a fabulous gift- kind, gracious, positive people! Suddenly, as the newest buds pop from wakening branches and magenta crocuses burst from green cocoons, smiles begin to light the faces of young and old alike. In our self-centered world, people with some "spring" in their step really do add some sunshine to the lives of others.
In thinking about the dawning of a new season, a season filled with the promise of growth and change, I can't help but wonder about the blooming opportunities my life may hold.

There are so many things I contemplate.
There are so many things I wonder about.
There are so many things I am capable of, yet am afraid to undertake.

Am I using my talents in a way that I feel best reaches others?
Am I truly tapping my creative juices?
Am I following my intuition?

What if I changed things up?
What if I followed that ridiculous, insane dream that I constantly envision ?
What if I took more chances?

Yep, it's a definite season of new beginnings. Isn't it fantastic? (smile*) Happy, happy, happy spring. May yours be simply wonderful!

Pretty flowers! So happy that we are having some nice weather. Love your yellow jacket and your contemplation poem.

Now that PSSA's are over maybe we can enjoy spring.
