I know New Year’s is the popular time for resolutions; I usually make a few myself at that time of year. But for some reason, I usually don’t have the motivation to stick to them until spring hits. Maybe it’s hard to stick to difficult goals in the dead of winter. Spring time, on the other hand, is a natural time to regenerate and renew.
I get the spring cleaning bug like crazy, and it tends to trickle down to all other aspects of my life. There’s something about the warmer weather that makes me want to get EVERYTHING cleaned and organized.
Now I’m the type of person who just thinks better when I’m in tidy and organized surroundings (this might explain why I’m a total scatterbrain most of the time lol). So when
I really dig in with that spring cleaning and start getting my house in order, it kick starts my creativity. I’m more motivated and excited to dive into new projects or finish old ones. I’m excited to make new goals and brainstorm new projects. I’ll get real ambitious and decide that not only will I crank out at least 3000 words a day, but I’ll do it after waking up early to get in a full workout (this one doesn’t pan out often….).
There is just something about the warming weather, the shining sun, the flowers blooming and singing birds that INSPIRES me. And so my real goals and resolutions for the year are set – and, more often than not, are stuck to.
Clean house and keep up with it
Work smarter and be more productive
Get EVERYTHING in life more organized
