Spring Backward

Seasons come and go, this we know, but we become complacent when it snows. We are not bears, we are beings created to create wonderment and yes, create our own joy. I’ve noticed that some of us like to wait until Spring to begin a new adventure or start on something we hope to accomplish. For example, you have a new year resolution to take better care of yourself. You start that first week with great ambition, then it gets too cold, or like me, you’re snowed in. So you stop, repeating to yourself, “I’ll get back on the wagon when I can comfortably go outside.” So two-three weeks pass and you still haven’t gotten back into your rhythm… then you say, “I’ll start back in Spring, it will be so pretty then.” Hogwash!
That company that you want to open, that project that you need to finish, that charity work, that conversation you need to have, those papers you need to file… can and should get done, when? Right today.

We make our happiness, we develop and explore our own joy. So when you don’t “feel” like doing something (that you should do), change your energy. Envision how sexy you want to look in your beach attire THIS YEAR, and work hard to get it… You will not get your summer body by summer if you start in the spring. Sorry

Similar to anxiety these feelings of lack come and then they always go! So don’t let those five or ten minutes take you completely off track… it takes a lot more energy to start all-over-again.

A little birdie told me today is FRIDAY! Is this true? I’m doing my Friday dance. MUAH Have an amazing weekend!


  1. Okay, so how'd you know I needed to read this today?? Haha! So well said and now... for it to sink in and be ACTED UPON! (That's always the "hard" part, right?).

    Thanks so much!!

    Happy weekend!


  2. Thanks for the inspiration. My doctor gave me some too, so we got a treadmill. I can't make any excuses about the weather.


  3. This is just what I needed to hear at this point in my life. It's been a rough 2 years, but I need to start making excuses and reclaim my self. Love you.

  4. I so needed to read this message today. Having trouble with doubt in myself. Not that I can't do something but feeling like I have way to many options which makes it harder for me to figure out whats best for me at this point of my life. I guess it could be worse to have no options at all so I wont complain. I'll get up and make things happen. Thanks for your words of wisdom. No more excuses I'm moving!

  5. Awesome advice...AND I LOVE THE T-SHIRTS!!!!!!! I so wish I had 25 bucks to get one now! Maybe in a few weeks!!
