It’s a bit of an early spring out there. Early in the morning it can still be pretty cold, but always by lunch the sun will be shining, people will be happy, you might even say there’s a little bit of joy in the air. I can’t think of a better time to open the door, set your feet on solid ground and put your mind at ease.
Of course I love my winters, but perhaps I love the changing of seasons more. When the world melts away and the sun is revealed or when the failing of the light leads to chilly days and warm hearts. I don’t love spring for it’s own sake and yet I can’t help enjoying this time of year. It is easier than ever to get outside when the sun warms the air. In a bad funk? Take a walk, clear your head, lower your blood pressure and let the wind carry away some of those stressful feelings.
Breathe the air, smell the promise. The promise of warmer futures, brighter days and fair skies. I believe in the power of nature, it was purposely made for you and I. The lure of adventure, humans were made to explore, to go beyond, see above, live higher. But we have stuffed it down, comfort is important now, contentment and convenience are more desirable than truly living.
But that is the true promise of spring, the secret for those who would seek it out. We can live, breathe, see, do and be. We can do more, rise higher, see farther and even humble ourselves before the altar of God known to us as nature.
We can Explore Beyond.
