Seasons change so the saying goes...I love expressions and
I am a believer in fanute not ‘twas ever thus!
Some of the weather this past week has reminded me of spring and for that I am grateful. Luckily, I’ve always been a spring girl! My birthday is in spring! My friend’s mom was a Mary Kay-lady and in high school informed me my face/skin tone is spring!
Spring is the time when many plants begin to grow and flower.
I recently read the book, How to be Happy, Dammit. A Cynics Guide to Spiritual Happiness.
By Karen Salmansohn.
It is quoted in the book that some plants are only meant to last for a season or a certain time. If you try to make them live longer, you will be a bad gardener.
It goes on to say this is true of people, jobs and problems in general.
Perhaps, page 41 of the book was the most helpful to me.
In short it stated if you give a plant direct sunlight and plenty of water when it thrives best in darkness with very little water it will die.
I’ve never had a green thumb. Maybe this is why I’ve always had trouble in these life situations.
I want to be better at it though and now I know. Give each plant what it needs! And this, too, is true of people, jobs and problems in general.
Aaaaaaah! Sweet Spring!
Rebirth, renewal, love, hope, youth and growth.
To me it mainly means hope. Not hoping for something that is already done and can never be again, but hope for the future and to what is new and beautiful!
Such seasonal symbolism! I am ready!
