Spring has returned to Toronto! 🌹🌺🐇🐥 Hooray! I’m not sure what happened in the last week… perhaps Mother Nature had been dating some guy (let’s call him Steve) and perhaps she found out Steve was cheating on her. So she got angry and froze everything. Maybe that’s what happened. Thanks, Steve. Either way, I think things are back on track.
Spring is a tricky season. I hate it because I have allergies and everything in the environment drives me NUTS… but I also hate it because so many break-ups seem to happen in the spring. The weather is gorgeous! I’m moving on!! I’ve had two friends become bachelors again in the past week. Myself, well I had the pleasure of being sent packing via text message. That was nice… so… nice. I mean, it hadn’t been a long courtship but aaaaauuuggghhh…. text message?? Though I will give him points for not adding any emojis. 😕 I’m starting to think that as the groundhog predicts the upcoming six more weeks of winter/a hasty spring, well he should predict relationships too. Six more weeks of winter, and two more weeks until Bob tells you he’s at a difficult time in his life and needs space to think!
My mood has also been strange of late, my heart has felt heavy… but I did leave my bakery job and with turning 40 I’m so much more conscious of time. How delicate it can be. So maybe my body is changing as the seasons do… the news today that a friend gave birth to a baby girl today reminded me instantly that as much as there is loss, loss of jobs or relationships or your own groove… there is plenty to be grateful for. There’s growth all around me. Today my nephew (who is not yet 2) jumped into my arms and commanded me to run around the house as his mom chased us. He’d never done that before- it was really cool.
So. Spring is here! Along with the plants, we’re all trying to grow and become something bigger, right? So grab the allergy pills and get on with it.
