Spring is here although it doesn’t feel like it after surviving four Nor’easters in one month. One would think this is the North Pole right now. But Spring will come and will receive the rain that will give life to flower buds and seedlings. The buds will start on the trees, and we will get a “Spring” in our step and want to get outside and breathe in the new air and find the new possibilities that await you.
In honor of Spring, you could make a list of the many ideas of what you envision for the future. One may be to take a trip in the area you live. Explore some of the places you have never been to visit. Start a new hobby or sport. Plant a flower or vegetable garden in your backyard or find a community garden in your area.
Spring is a great time to clear out the cupboards of heavy winter foods and start planning menus with more fresh fruit and vegetables. Take those clothes you haven’t worn in 2 years and call Big Sister/Big Brother to come pick them up. Spring is a time of cleansing and renewal! Start cleaning your home of stuff you don’t use, and you will have more time for the things you enjoy.
One of the things I am doing this year is learning to play golf. I have been saying I would learn for the past four years since my better half plays all the time and it is something we could spend time doing together (I think-lol!). A good friend of mine called and told me about a great deal at a local country club and I signed up with her. Am I scared- oh yes! I am not that good, and I don’t feel comfortable displaying my lack of athletic ability, but I am going to give it my best shot. I even asked for “Golfers for Dummies” for a Mother’s Day Gift which brought lots of laughter from my adult son. I am looking forward to the melting of snow and the arrival of Spring giving way to me getting on the green!
