The Meaning of Spring Season
Looking at the transformations in nature and ourselves during spring.
The spring season is full of transformations. The temperature rises to a more bearable degree, opposing Mother Nature's last few months of freezing surroundings. The leaves we saw fall and flowers we saw wilt are now budding into lush, green, picture-perfect plants. Aside from the weather's transformations that occur in the spring season, we are transforming our lives, too.
The holidays are over now ... no more high-calorie foods loaded with carbohydrates and saturated fats that Grandma made for Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner. No more putting off that morning jog because the roads are covered in ice or snow.
When spring rolls into our lives, we start to pick up the slack that winter instilled inside us of becoming sloths. That New Year's resolution to join the gym starts being enforced, so you're sure to have your bikini body back in time for your beach vacation. No more lounging on the couch all day watching football — in the spring you can gather friends together at the park for your own game.
For those of us with allergies, spring is also a wake up call for our immune systems.
