The spring season always brings about a feeling of anticipation. Life beginning again after being dormant. For me spring is a season of re-birth. It naturally generates curiosity in my soul. I find myself thinking “what if” and “how about” as I make plans to finish projects, take trips and be more spontaneous. The doors to my imagination open and I am curious to try new foods and experience new places again. It’s a change from the comfort I sought in the winter months of familiar places and time spent with family and friends. It’s familiar this rhythm of hibernation and rebirth. For me it follows the seasons and I gladly anticipate the change as it reminds me to find balance between the comforts I seek in winter and curiosity to challenge my limits in the spring. It’s this ebb and flow of reflection and anticipation that continually challenges me to stay rooted but not be afraid to grow and change. If only we could all remember that gentle lesson year round. To stay rooted but not be afraid to grow. To see change as a rebirth, an opportunity to re-evaluate and enrich ourselves. Easier said than done, for sure, but perhaps that’s the purpose in springs reminder to remain curious and open to what is different and new.
