Spring: How to enjoy a season of renewed hope, new possibilities and a fresh perspective

The promise of a future, that the blooming flowers of Spring, reminds us of!

So here we are, it is officially Springtime. Although Spring doesn’t start until March, I had been noticing little signs of Spring throughout the last part of February with more sunshine, fresh shoots springing up from the ground and buds appearing on plants and trees.

Just look at the photo above, there is such a stark juxtaposition between Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer. We have the hard, cold, solid soil – representing the harsh cold winter we have just got through. Then we see the flowers that were still able to grow and push through this soil with perseverance and determination to push upwards towards the light.

We are those daffodil bulbs that were buried in the cold, harsh winter months – maybe hibernating in the warm or suffering from the Winter blues. Yet, seeing those fresh daffodil shoots appear from empty looking soil, is a reminder that no matter how hard life has got, there is always a renewal of hope for better.

‘Never Judge a Book by Its Cover’ ~ Poem by Helen’s Journey

‘Never Judge a Book by Its Cover!’

Poem & Prose by Helen’s Journey

Have you felt unjustly judged in life, in work, in relationships and friendships?

Or do you yourself find you are being very judgemental of others or of appearances and don’t fully realise the depth to your stereotyping and assumptions?

We do not have to wait for ‘New Year Resolutions’ to look at moulding the ‘New You’  into how you want yourself to be and how you want to behave. I hope this poem will be a reminder for us all, to look at how we conduct ourselves on a daily basis and to be aware of how we generally treat other people.
