The vernal equinox marks the beginning of longer, brighter days. Spring’s extra daylight has the power to change us in positive ways. We feel more optimistic and resilient; just as plants turn to capture the light of the sun, we humans also depend upon and crave sunlight for our mental and physical well-being.
As light begins to shine brightly once more and birds, insects and animals emerge, and plants and flowers begin to bloom, it is indeed a time of renewal. Spring is a time for us to embark on new journeys and start new projects with fresh ideas. As we ponder the tiny leaflets on each tree, let us also allow that optimism to guide our own re-emergence, resilience and growth.
