The calendar may indicate spring, but for most of the country, spring is lacking. Chicago has been dark, dreary and damp. I suppose it’s better than the late season snow storms many other cities are still seeing.
A walk around the yard today does prove that nature is trying to make amends. Perhaps warm temperatures will finally become more than a glimmer of hope.
It’s reassuring to know, no matter how brutal the winter, spring, then summer will always follow and it won’t be grey forever.
We all sail into unfamiliar waters daily with no idea of what lies ahead. Some of those days feel as though you’re riding an emotional roller coaster but at least it proves you’re alive. What’s worse is gliding along just trying to get through each day with as little effort as possible. That’s when life becomes stagnant, unfulfilling or meaningless. Emotions at least can motivate us to improve. If we’re unhappy with something in our lives it may lead us to seek change, encourage quality friendships, or move past painful ones. The hope is if you can at least get a glimpse into the future you can see endless possibilities before you. You may not be where you thought you’d be at this time of your life. You expected to be more settled, happier, maybe more at peace and not so tired, but remember it doesn’t mean you can’t get there eventually. Just don’t fear the voyage.
Remember that no matter what, there will always be something bigger than you out there. There may be days when you can’t see beyond the image in the mirror. You must look past it and you will realize you’re not alone.
