It’s Spring in the US;this means showers and flowers. Some days are cool. Others are hot. But we all enjoy the freshness in the air.

I always listen to the weather report to know how to dress these days, or whether to pack an umbrella if I’m heading out. It’s called preparation. Most everyone does it…for the natural weather and seasons.

So now onto creating your ideal life; your Garden of Eden.

Is it springtime for you? I’ve decided that this is a season where some days are warm, where things are happening and I can see the results quickly. Then other days are cool, when there is less outward activity. I use those days to continue my long term planning and to ensure the systems of my business are in order for the heavy hot busy days of Summer. Don’t fret if every day is not bursting with productive outward activity. Recognize that this may be the season of fluctuating weather.

We also need to pay attention to the signs of things that are blooming and springing up in our lives. Those that are healthy and enhancing should be encouraged. I’m still working on getting into a rhythm in my exercise routine, but each week is better than the one before. Something is blooming here. I want to encourage this. Congratulate yourself if you are succeeding in some small way in your life, in any area of focus. And if there are little negative habits creeping in, nip them in the bud in this season. Do not allow them to take root. No more watching late night talk shows for me. They’re actually quite useless. But for a time I was devoting the last hour of my day to the senseless jokes of late night comics. Not any more.

Enjoy the freshness of the air. The newness of spring. Appreciate the new doors that are opening, the new experiences, the new friends and the new life that is unfolding for you. I am certain in some area of your life there is something new unfolding. Take a deep breath and enjoy the newness, just like a lovely spring day.
Not everything may be going as you planned, but in creating your ideal life, you have to look for the good in every day and every endeavor and be thankful and appreciative to the Creator.
