This time of year envisions sprouts of seeds and shoots of green – if you missed it today, don’t worry, there will be optimism tomorrow.
Spring is an attitude adjustment.
It takes frowns down and pumps spirits up. It measures days by how you feel rather than how long you worked. It makes morning drives with dawn breaking or broken more tolerable. It causes our thoughts to turn to lawnmowers, golf clubs, ice-cream cones. This time of year envisions sprouts of seeds and shoots of green – if you missed it today, don’t worry, there will be optimism tomorrow.
Bird chirps and warmer air bring thoughts of spring closer every morning – and while there will be spurts and blasts of winter weather next month, the 2020 spring is feeling like it is already here because spring is not about weather or temperature.
Some might ask me how I can be so positive with virus scares and railroad blockades dominating the news – and my answer is, “Why not?”
I’ve been optimistic most of my life with moments of pessimism tossed in like salt and pepper – just for flavor, but optimism has always been the meal.
We can snack on anything in life; and we can make it our whole meal – or taste it, take it or leave it, make any event or stage into a place we stay (stuck or comfortable) or one we pass through (visiting tourist, or taste-sampling) en route to something better somewhere else.
