Ok, so spring is officially here – supposedly (yesterday was officially the first day). There is still snow covering a lot of ground here in the East Coast after the storm (thanks Stella) and with that, the temperatures are still dipping and dabbling in winter’s seemingly charming mix! So in theory we are in the spring season, but at any point white fluff could be upon us again (God I hope not).
Anyhoo enough with my rant over wanting spring and slightly higher temps (yes, I’ll take slight increases at this point). Spring to me signifies new beginning – flowers bloom, trees begin to get life again and animals come out to play. It also helps that it’s at the beginning of every New Year, so the newness is in double dose.
Did you make resolutions for 2017? If not, what are you waiting for? It is still early enough in the year to make a choice to make a change in your life. Seasons change, time is constantly changing, but we as people continue to stay the same. We get stuck in routines, culture and habits. Enough already! I made up in my mind, from the end of 2016 that this was gonna be a different year for me.
I have always been a forward thinking person, a dreamer if you will, but those dreams would stay in the “dreamsphere”. I would say I’ll do this, that and the third, but I guess fear of stepping into the unknown had me stuck! Also, culture, nurture, habits, had me stuck! So it’s been getting better as the years progressed – I realized that time was changing, moving, and I wasn’t. I realized that things I had thought of doing & creating, someone else came from the shadows and did it before me!
I have been much better with this, but let me tell you….it’s been the biggest hurdle to jump. College, a Master’s degree, moving to countries all by myself had nothing on this – getting over the inner obstacles. Good Lord! So fast forward to 2017, I am making an intentional effort to do me like I want to do me. I am making a concentrated effort to jump, move, do – All Faith No Fear (this is my mantra for this year). So are you going to join me?
What things in your life have you been dreaming of doing or changing? How much longer are you going to let the numbers go up every year? Take a stand with me would ya…? I think I’m going to put together a challenge – I’m going to challenge myself and all of you to live life to the fullest.
You may not be able to do everything you want at the level you want, but you can definitely start. So stay tuned for that. In the meantime, in between time, spring into your new you, the better you, the more focused and determined you. Do you think you have what it takes to see your goals come to life? Take the challenge – I think you are more than able to not only handle it but blaze it up. Why? Because you rock!
