I am finally a huge fan of Spring. Literally — as of Sunday.
Overall I am a very patient person. I can however be a little ridiculously impatient when waiting for things like subway trains to arrive. Truth be told – I have shared those same impatient feelings with Spring.
It’s like, “C’mon already! All I really want is SUMMER to be here! The only thing I like about you Spring is my birthday!”
I am simply far too happy in the sun to be bothered with the rest of the seasons. Winter is frigid, slippery and often yucky. Every year I attempt to ban myself from my constant complaining about how cold it is outside (I have unfortunately never succeeded with this endeavor).
Then yesterday while walking with my wonderful friend, Dina, I became trapped in her appreciation of Spring….and I actually truly enjoyed it. We walk down her street and intentionally noticed all of the buds on trees and bushes and tiny flowers who bravely broke through the thawed ground to bring us such hope and pleasure.
Maybe I just need to be more intentional with my appreciation of the season? I wonder what other areas of my life would be improved with a little extra intentional appreciation.
What have you intentionally appreciated lately?
