So I walked outside this morning and was startled to find a mountain of dried pollen on my car.
Oh right, it’s that time of year.
♫Nose is always runny, I sneeze, eyes are itchy,
There’s Benadryl in my system already, mom’s spaghetti.♫
Spring is here.
Color has finally returned to the world! It’s been spring for a couple weeks, but I feel as if I only noticed a change today. It’s nice. I’m also sneezing a lot more. Not nice.
Spring is the season where the world wakes up from it’s winter slumber. The birds sing, the trees and flowers begin to bloom, everything is green and beautiful. It’s the season of growth and energy.
Spring not only is the season of growth, it’s the season of NEW.
New beginnings, new goals, new toys! Spring isn’t a season of reflection, it’s a season of ACTION! Make that change you’ve been desiring to make now! Everything else around you is changing, why not? You may be sneezing all over like a snot-helicopter, but there’s a new energy all around! Take this season as an opportunity to try something new.
Not sure what kind of new things to try? Here’s a few:
Listen to a different type of music.
Maybe you haven’t even found your favorite band yet. Maybe you’ll love Ska if you give it a real good chance. I’ve given Ska a real good chance.
I don’t like it.
Read a new author, maybe even a genre you aren’t familiar with.
I’m currently reading Princess Bride. It’s an adventure of high fantasy and true love. Keep it fresh with the books you read. You can always get something good out of a book, even if you don’t like it very much.
Basically, just do something you’re not super comfortable with.
How else do you grow if you don’t expand into new areas?
Thinking about doing new things, I’ve decided. I’m going to write a book. I’ve settled it. It’s happening. I’m starting now. Let’s do this. Spring is here, why not.
You know what else spring is about? Spring is about cleaning.
I think it’s about cleaning because there’s pollen from about a quadrillion flowers on my car, and on everything else in my life. I think back in the old days people got tired of trudging through molten pools of pollen, so they invented spring cleaning.
I’ve noticed a serious difference in my attitude and happiness when I have a clean environment. My car is a dumpster right now, though. I’ll update you on the quality of my life once I’ve spring cleaned it.
Spring is about change
There’s a bright light in the air, and an energy that only spring has. There’s something so special about the world we live in. It’s easy to ignore it when you’re busy, but the world has things to say if you listen.
Gosh, I sound like a hippy trying to convince you to become in tune with the rhythm energy of the world or something.
In every season there’s a change and a shift. Change is good in life. If you want to learn something from the seasons, maybe just learn that one small fact. Change is good. Sometimes the best thing you can do in your life is change it up just a little bit.
Try something new, clean your car, get a plant.
I’ve always wanted a desk cactus.
Like, here’s my desk cactus everybody. I only water it once a month. He’s so happy, look at him, all prickly and stuff.
