spring into summer

ID-100128413.africa

After over three and a half years of looking towards spring with hope and optimism while still trudging through the mud of a cold bleak winter, I feel that winter is finally over. Spring is here. Summer is on its way. More importantly, the trudging is finally over. There is now a spring in my step.Β This is a warm bright place to be and I am singing.

I have therefore changed the name of my blog from ‘Almost Spring’Β  to ‘Spring into Summer’. I am no longer looking towards spring, I am in spring and I am bouncing.

I have altered the tagline from ‘transforming my life from we to me’Β  to ‘finding my voice and speaking my truth’. I have also revised the information in the pages and sidebar. I feel that these changes more correctly reflect where I am in my life.

Spring is a season, not only for new beginnings, but also for shaking off the winter blues and getting ready for the warm summers ahead. I see this time in my life as one in which to spring-clean or tidy up my old world, letting go of anything that does not serve me well; as well as planting seeds ready for their bloom in the summer to come. I see it as an exciting time of trying out new things, as well as planning and readying myself for the vision I have for a wonderful future, a vision of living true to my own beliefs.

The planning stage for that vision is finding my voice and speaking my truth.

My journey continues. I hope that you will join me on the path ahead.

  1. I’m right here! This is so great.
    When we are ready and tell the universe, it hears us and responds!
    Can’t wait to see what happens next in the new chapter of your life Elizabeth πŸ™‚
    xo

  2. Well done, Elizabeth – the chrysalis opens and the butterfly appears. (May your butterfly live much longer than just one season, though πŸ™‚ ). Blessings.

  3. I am so excited to see a new blog post name and a new “byline,” too! This post was definitely bouncy and full of pep. I like your new energy level, Elizabeth. I have seen and admired your changes both within yourself and on your blog.
    Sometimes I feel we met at different places on the continuum of divorce, growth and development but we were meant to learn from each other. You inspire in me– a sense of organization and commitment for improvement.
    I feel my “mission” changed after I had written most of my dating adventures. I felt originally I would help others who were either shy, reluctant or inexperienced in dating. I realized my focus needed to expand to include interpersonal relationships. Not so much men and women, as in dating, but in growing, learning and bringing people together, Elizabeth. We may have paths which cross now that we are closer to our “true” selves. If I am way off base, let me know! πŸ™‚

    • I did feel that change in you some time ago, one towards growth and inter-personal development. I admire that in you and I feel you have personally become stronger and more at peace. Yes, I have gone down much the same path, in that I had a change of voice, or I had a change in the way I looked at things. There was a lot of self-reflection going behind in the background to achieve that though!
      Thanks for your friendship.
