This time of year, I usually start to feel really, painfully restless. My cozy winter lethargy suddenly wears off, and instead of sitting on the couch eating melted cheese and reading Harry Potter for the 16th time, I find myself wanting to go all the places and do all the things (some of my most recent impulses include hiking the PCT, making my own amari and attending a block chain meetup, for example. Whaaaat?!). In a short amount of time, I end up with a gigantic laundry list of things I’d like to do, and I inevitably find a multitude of obstacles in my way, like my finances, my day job, and my inability to create more hours in the day. Also known as, you know, life.
Today’s equinox has offered a much needed reminder to pause and notice this inflection point. To look back on all the good stuff that happened over my slovenly winter and feel inspired by all that I’m motivated to do in spring. To get excited about all this energy instead of feeling frustrated by it. And to be reminded that growth and change, like all the best things, take love and time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Happy spring 🌷
