Bonus cool points if you know the reference in the title of this post. 🙂
No matter how hard I try, every year there’s a posting gap on this site after my February 27th post. This time it was only a month so I guess that’s progress. You’d probably think it’s because the post about my grandma takes a lot out of me and robs me of the ability to write. In actuality, I’ve been writing quite a bit…but in a notebook rather than on the internet. Emerging from the end of February is an awakening of sorts for me every year.
In the spring, I take time to enjoy the life I have. Choosing to spend my free time with friends or exploring new things is fulfilling. I pick up a book before I pick up a screen. It is freeing to enjoy the sunshine and laugh with people who matter to me. I didn’t give up social media for Lent or even intend to step back from it, but focusing on other parts of life resulted in a natural reduction.
It’s important to remember that digital quietness does not equal dormancy. I have many projects in the works and goals I’m working toward. There are also posts for this site waiting in the wings…they’re just not quite ready yet. For now, you get this little update.
Do you have any traditions or routines you pick up in the spring?
Until my next post, on nice weather days you’ll probably find me outside somewhere soaking up the sunshine.
