Spring Joy! (2014 - Blog #66)
Saturday, March 08, 2014
Seriously, what else is there to say when the sun shines through cherry blossoms.
I drove to my daughter's house in Portland today and marveled at the sun and the tree blossoms. I wanted to stop and take pictures but had to get her to the airport. After the rains and weird snows and cooler that normal January/February, today was simply JOY JOY JOY.
I like the winter. The cool temps feel good, challenging, invigorating. I had to learn to dress for cold and wet, but once I did, I learned to thrive in cold. That said, SPRING is sweet. I think it is even sweeter when you have had a hard winter. I am convinced that the blossoms are more plump, the colors more rich and the air more crisp after a long hard winter.
Is that how weight loss impacts us? After a long hard winter of the weight of weight, do we feel more invigorated by the JOY of the new spring in our step? For me, yeah :) And I really do not think it is only in my head. I appreciate my good health a lot more now that I jeopardized it once. The lightness I feel is sweeter than when I had good health and did not notice it as much.
Enjoy the SPRING in your step this weekend!
