The sun is shining…birds are chirping… the coffee pot is whistling and I am so spring ready 🙂
Spring season automatically creates a mood of freshness, enthusiasm, liveliness, excitement, growth… and the list of all this positive words associated with Spring is long. Time seems to be moving so fast, looking back it feels we had just entered into this new year yesterday and now it is Spring 2016 already!
While walking in the trail with my daughter my mind was busy contemplating how much this beautiful season has to offer. It is a reminder of so many facts of life. It led me to think, what does spring bring with itself and what lessons do we learn from this season.
Here are the top three things I feel spring brings with-itself.
Vibrance and Color
The visuals of color, spring brings around are so pleasant. The grey and gloomy winter days slowly start becoming colourful and bright, showing the first signs of spring. We see signs of fresh life springing around us as the snow melts and the green grass starts raising its head. The chirping of those vibrant colored birds is something I notice most these days. This sound sends reminders of those warm summer days coming ahead. Everything seems to get vibrant as they slowly transition out of hibernation. This by default gives so much of energy and enthusiasm, makes one feel like they are ready to take on the world with new strength and stamina.
Lesson learnt – Adding more color around us can brighten our daily lives, uplift our moods . Colors signify various aspects of life and brings vibrancy around us. Fresh colors of spring add the zing!
Blossoms and Blooms
As spring progresses we see beautiful blossoms of flowers and leaves sprouting out. The air fills with fresh scent of these blossoms. This season activates all human senses the most. With spring begins all festivities and gatherings. This reminds me of the Cherry Blossom festival that I have always wanted to visit and I am hoping to make it there this season. We had a chance of visiting the Tulip festival in Ottawa couple of years back and we simply loved it. So it does bring with it the much-needed bloom.
Lesson learnt- Change is the essence, nothing is constant. All dark and gloomy days are followed by bright and fresh days, so if you are going through times that you are finding difficult to cope up with, do not worry, just as spring brings an end to winter, same way, these difficult days will not last long and will be replaced by good and happy days. Life is about change, nothing is permanent.
Warmth and Hope
Spring brings an end to the cold harsh winds and icy – snowy storms. More sunshine brings the warmth we have been all longing for after the cold winter. It wraps the earth around us under its green blanket and the extended hours of sunshine recharges our soul.
It spreads new hopes of new beginnings. Inspires one to leave the past behind and focus on the present….we cannot change things that have happened in the past but we can certainly enjoy what we have in the present.
Lesson learnt – Stay hopeful, have faith and soak in all the warmth you see around you and enjoy the moment you are currently in.
