Spring is amazing for my mental health. As I watch plants bloom I feel completely amazed. Crawling out of winter I think its amazing how things wake up, all that energy that is stored is suddenly released and the plants grow.
I have started some seedlings indoors this year for the first time and I am amazed every day as they grow, this incredible demonstration of energy transfer for growth and life.
It makes me feel motivated, that my own energy transfer can bring life to me to. I have a lot stored up and I need to turn some of that it muscles and movement.
So dust off the bike and inflate the tires, plan some hikes (though there is still a lot of snow in the mountains) and just walk outside.
The winter hits me harder every year and I see why people winter warmer places more and more. It was incredibly hard to keep up momentum on the progress I made last summer and carry it through till now.
Climbing was the one thing I was able to get out and do over the cold dark months and it worked out well as every time I went I felt better. Now I am excited as its getting close to the time that I can try climbing on the real rocks outside.
I can also take my kayaks out. I can go camping. I can get outside with so much less challenge and everything becomes much more doable.
The next few months hold so much promise and I am going to soak it all in, open up all the windows and let that energy flow in and give me life.
Got any plans for this season? ready to Adventure?
I sure am!!!!
there are facts and then there are emotions. This is as honest as I can be about my struggles and triumphs.
