Spring is finally in the air, meanwhile subtle signs of morning frost still remind me of the promised winter that never came. Raised in a country where in the cold months the temperature drops to 30 degrees below 0, I can’t help but feel slightly strangled by the absence of this stillness. I was thinking why this is and it brought me to conclusion, that perhaps it is why this country feels so chaotic – nothing ever fully rests, not even nature.
To ease this nostalgia, I made a decision to wake up early, get out of the house and submerge myself in all this blossoming beauty. The morning sun was colouring the skies in pink, slowly waking nature with its warmth. I sat down by a tree and listened. The birds were filling the woods with their beautiful song, while the trees swung gently to waves of wind, creaking to its music. The power of the present moment and magic in the smallest details were so strong, I just had to breathe everything in. The sweet smell of daffodils and freshly fallen pine branches seemed to fill up even the smallest gaps in me. I couldn’t have felt more whole.
As always, a small dose of nature seemed to heal all my worries, and allowed the stillness I was missing so much. Now I feel like a new cycle in my life begins, so spring emerges in every way – filled with creativity and life. I hope you keep up with the emerging beauty, and allow the flow to take you wherever your calm grows. Happy spring everyone! Ursule ♥
