The vibrant yellow heads of the daffodils have blossomed everywhere you look, the skies are bluer and the hours of day light are growing gradually longer and boy am I glad to see all of this! Was it just me or was this winter really long? I can't remember the last time it was still light at 7pm and now I find myself shocked in the evening that it's so bright. The sunny weather lately has really improved my mood and I am feeling enthusiastic for the summer, and the future in general. Spring is all about new beginnings, with all the birth and re-growth. For me, I am more likely to feel re-motivated at the beginning of Spring than at New Years in the midst of the winter gloom. It's funny how the seasons have such an influence of your mentality isn't it?
Now more than ever, I really want to make this year a good one. I'm more enthusiastic about learning, developing my career and doing as much as I can to add to my C.V. I'm also starting to take photos again! I wouldn't call myself a photographer by any stretch of the word but it is something I really enjoy doing and I guess the beauty of Spring has inspired me to pull out my camera again. I'm also feeling a lot more enthusiastic about my blog. I had a bit of a dry spell there for a month or so where all of my creative juiced had stopped. I'm not saying I have a load of post ideas (still have a bit of writers block) but I do feel much more interested and willing to brainstorm ideas which is great as I love this little space.
Finally, I am growing more and more excited for my trip to Italy in June. It's just over 2 months away and that is quickly creeping up on mee. Eeeeep.
Does Spring make you feel excited for new beginnings and re-motivated also, or am I just a bit crazy? Let me know in the comment section below!
