It is also an opportunity for us to renew our internal energy towards living life to the fullest no matter what challenges/limitations maybe in front of us.
We all have obstacles that we have to overcome in some form. Conquering these very obstacles is what make life so awesome and for-filling.
I personally can not remember a time in my life where I have known so many wonderful people that are fighting for their life, accepting that theirs or a dear ones life is nearly over, or even dealing with a recent loss of a loved one.
I want to take this very special time of new beginnings to encourage all of us to stay in the game of life to the fullest. Soak in all of the beautiful flowers and critters that are around you this spring, walk in the grass bear-footed when you can. Go so far as to even have that the "little" piece of pie/cake that you may deprive yourself otherwise. Roll those windows down and let your hair get messed up while the temps are so comfortable. Think of that one thing that you think you are too Old for and find a way to do it. Or take that first step into a hobby that you have always wanted to do... all of these things can reduce our stress and bring even more joy into our lives and that is what our love ones would want for us. I personal pledge to spend more time outside and less with "cleaning house".
