Is Spring Ever Coming?

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. – Hal Borland

It’s April. Your stock of Vitamin D is depleted and you’re slowly remembering what the sun looks like. Deadlines and To Do lists – both work related and ‘spring cleaning’ – are starting to pile up, taxing the mind and body. And gosh, that To Do list is getting longer and longer. It’s the season where all of nature is shucking off the torpor of winter cold and dreariness and getting busy, and that means you too. You may not be making headlines yet, but you – and your actions – influence others just like the first robin spotted on newly green earth, or the last drop of snowmelt disappearing on the driveway.

It’s a new season. Change is a good thing. Out with the old, in with the new. Spring is work. Hard work. But it produces new life, new growth, new opportunities and new adventures. Keeping pressing forward and change is there. A new season of life will begin. The entombing ice piles of winter – like anything else you’re facing – will melt away and bring fresh insights and new inspirations.

This is the cycle of life. Participate willingly.
