Start With Spring…

Please note my Northeastern perspective on this thought, those of you living in a temperate climate may not or cannot share this view…

Driving in the most glorious of weather, it came to mind how much I love and look forward to spring. Which got me to thinking why don’t we start the actual calendar year with spring? It represents renewal and rebirth, there is more light and a “lightness” of spirit. The season represents hope, life and faith… Many faiths begin their calendars in spring. The zodiac starts with Aries (March-April). Chinese medicine’s first meridians are wood (spring).

I wonder if our “New Year” resolutions would be followed through more often if we began the year with spring, instead of the dregs of January? We’d have more energy to carry out those resolutions, instead of just hibernating…

As for me I’m going for a walk, to breathe and take in all the promise of this season and the universe has to offer!  I will guarantee there will be a SPING in my step!
