In Spring, projects & plans that have been chilling in the recesses of our minds all winter start to come to the surface just like the flowers. Many of us start housecleaning to clear out the old and prepare for new possibilities. We seek to eliminate what we no longer need: Shedding the things that have been crowding our homes that may be broken, no longer applicable, past their time and/or suitable for a donation or yard sale.

Spring is also a wonderful time to clear stored stuff in our minds and bodies as well. Maybe we were less inspired to move our bodies because it was cold: Is the phrase add “spring to our steps” a coincidental double entendre or a reminder to  get moving? It’s time to reinvigorate our bodies with more activity: yard work, housecleaning, car washing, gardening, walking & exercising. No time is better than now to start a new routine that gets our gears in motion.

But how about the mental stuff that’s been taking up space for too long? We’ve got a certain number of rooms between our ears and no space to store junk. Spring is an excellent time to inventory our lives & desires. Have we always wanted to take a class? Start dancing, cooking, photography, fixing engines, painting? Look for new work? Define new plans or trips? Figure out new ways to enjoy time with our significant others? Reconnect with friends and family? Maybe even reach out with an apology to someone? Offer a budding branch of peace that leaves the bitterness of winter behind us?

While we can’t go back to re-do our beginnings, today we can refresh to make plans and take actions for new endings. We can choose to live like Spring has blossomed and so have we with a fresh new perspective on how we’re going to live this new season upon us.
