Talk about going green! Spring has always been my favorite season because it’s full of possibility. You don’t have to bundle up (usually… this spring has been a bit wacky), school is almost out, you have spring break, the daylight stretches out past eight o’clock, the summer is ahead, it’s beautiful outside, you can open the windows and let the fresh air in while you gaze out at the green grass and blooming trees.
This year especially, spring feels so full of possibility. I have been through a hard year or two or three or four of trying to figure out what I want to do, how I can do it, how it could fit in with a “real” job… or not. I have tried 3 different jobs in the past two years and thought they were perfect when I started them. But they weren’t.
So here I am. I know what I love and what I am passionate about, and I am determined to make these things work together (and they do) to make a career for myself. It might not be a “set” career like society may think, and it may end up being several jobs cobbled together, but I see it. I see the end product. I’m breaking it into steps and working toward each one to make this actually happen and be substantial and not fall the second I stop to catch my breath.
Spring is also great for my creativity. The air, the blooms, I want to be out in it and take photos of it all and then just sit back and take a deep breath.
That’s it. I seriously just realized it. That is exactly why I love spring – the possibilities, the inspiration, the excitement, but also the invitation to sit back and relax and soak it all in and breathe.
