As spring approaches and the birds come out and mate, flowers start to bud and the weather gets a little bit better so many changes begin.
Not only is there a change with mother nature but changes begin in a lot of peoples lives as well.
Because of the cold nature of Winter, we as humans tend to clutter ourselves with layers of clothes and accessories to keep us warm . We cover ourselves with often times unnecessary clothing articles hoping to keep us warm and comfy. At times we may even find comfort in things that we don’t need too.
Once Spring comes the layers of protection and warmth are no longer needed, yet sometimes, so attached we rather burn than let go of the things/clothes that we no longer require.
In Life just like when the weather changes we hold on to certain things that we need to let go of.
That’s what I call it. Sometimes we are so accustomed to certain things and people that they become almost like cushion for us and even when we know its time to let go we are hesitant, attached and don’t want too release ourselves.
Spring comes and brings new beginnings.
If we think about the cycle of the weather and the circle of life *SIMBA ROAR* All the damage that the winter months brought are repaired and fixed when Spring comes.
Sometimes being comfortable holds us back from many opportunities and advances we could embark on. I have set so many goals for myself in the last 2 years and because of fear or contentment have not attained any of them.
I told myself I would have launched my clothing line fully, traveled to numerous countries around the world, opened up a bit to others around me and even maybe complete a set of literature reads, yet, haven’t gotten even close.
Someone once told me that too many humans live in a place called tomorrow land, pushing off all the things they could possibly do to another day and time.
Forcing Myself to do all that I said I was and not pushing it all off to another day, month of year.
Letting go of all my baggage and picking up the pieces to my future one day at a time. With new life naturally comes new opportunities new experiences and new chances to start fresh. I have been so afraid to move on, so afraid to let go of certain things and people that I’ve kept myself comfy and complacent in my own filth and mess.
Dropping off my winter coat that held my memories from …
Removing my knitted hat that sheltered me from the realties around me I tried to ignore
Slipping off my mitts and gloves that have covered my hands, stopping me from expressing myself through my words on paper.
Taking off my scarf that guarded my heart from ever opening up again
I swear I feel the air in my nostrils already. The fresh warming renewing scent of Spring brings me so much hope.
Its a new season. Time to Clean.
