Spring is in the air, or at least it is melting its way back into our hearts and reminding us of the times that we share with friends and families during those wonderful hot summer nights. We haven’t had much of a winter, and I never discount winter in Nova Scotia until at least May, but it just feels a little different this year. While every other place in North America is getting bombarded with winter, we are just sitting pretty with a few storms, that melt away as quick as they come. We have been fortunate this year.
Have you ever noticed that we bring up the weather in the beginning of conversations to use them as ‘ice breakers’ to start conversations? I love it. I get a kick out of the fact that every time that I speak with my grandfather, I can talk for about fifteen minutes on the weather. I become that impromptu meteorologist giving the play by plays of the weather, and my grandfather enjoys every minute of it.
I am bringing up this tidbit of information because for me a BIG part of my life is that changing of the seasons. When the outside changes, so does my frame of mind. The springtime drags me back to childhood, and I am alright with that. I think that no matter how old I get, when the sun starts to shine, in the spring time, my whole body and mind awaken. Suddenly, I again, feel like I have so much to do, and I finally have the energy to do it again. The wintertime, although I love that season as well, turns me into a bear causing me to hibernate. I want to be alive, I love living.
Life is about living and is made for the living. We are all just passengers on this great journey, you can choose to keep up the facade of what you think you ought to be, or you can just accept that you, alone, are beautiful in every way.
This is only going to be a short blog today, but I just thought I should say something. I have a few other blogs in the works so keep tuned.
Happy Does It :o)
