Spring Plans

“Spring is the time of plans and projects, wrote Lea Tolstoy in Anna Karenina.

I'm inclined to agree. As the earth wakes back to vibrant life, so do we.

Warm breezes blow in renewed energy.

   Budding blooms bring forth new ideas.

Rain-kissed air stirs up fresh vision. 

I set about deep cleaning the house. I head outdoors to play and exercise. Longer days make walks after dinner with Rick ideal. The beach beckons.

I dig in the dirt. I plant and anticipate the taste of the harvest.

I sort through and revamp my wardrobe. Exchanging the deep polish shades of winter for brighter, lighter hues.

My outlook brightens as well. I dream new dreams, feeling the quiet but confident ability to accomplish something new. And somehow, it's what's happening outside my window, outside my door, that makes this feel possible.

And so I start planning.  Right now I am working my way through Michael Hyatt's e-book Creating Your Personal Life Plan. It's a free download if you want to try it. Just follow that link.

What plans are you making this spring?

Do you have any kind of a personal life plan?
