“No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.” ~ Proverb ~
It’s time to stop procrastinating, waiting for the perfect words or the perfect blog post. It’s time just to write. Open up the pages and let the thoughts fall from my heart onto the page and trust that it’s okay to be imperfect. Since I managed to keep a blog very consistently last year, this may seem rather weird, but I want this blog to be different from my other blog. The truth is I have bigger dreams for here, and part of me is afraid I’ll mess it up.
Today I say the heck with the fear of messing things up. I’m ready to jump into these pages head first. If I mess up, so be it, life is always better with a little messy anyway.
Today I was photographing my lilac and apple trees. I love to photograph these trees as they slowly and gently allow their tiny buds to unfold from their winter slumber.
As I was snapping away, I suddenly realized why I love watching spring unfold in all her beauty; for I too feel as though I am waking from a slumber. I’m slowly waking and embracing a new time in my life. It seems as though I’m breaking free from a younger version of myself and bursting into this newer, stronger, wiser version of me. I like where things are going. I believe that my life is calling me in new directions and one step at a time I will find my way. I am trusting that if I take the steps towards my dreams, the Universe will light the path.
Like the bud of my apple tree, that is bursting with possibility; my soul is bursting at the seams with big dreams. I don’t want to keep them tightly balled up inside me anymore; I don’t want to let fear hold me back. Instead, I want to lift my face to the sun and allow the warm light to awaken my dreams that have patiently waited inside my heart for this very moment in time. Just like the bud of my tree that is ready to flower and bloom, I feel my dreams are ready to bloom in all their glory.
