Happy Spring Everyone!

Welcome to another IWSG post.

Thanks to the creator, Alex, and all of his remarkable and giving staff, we are here the first Wednesday of each month to help each other through our insecurities and, frankly, our writing and sometimes personal lives. If you want to join the group, please visit here to sign up!

I certainly don't know where the time is going. It's already April and the spring flowers are starting to bud. The Midwest is so pretty in the spring, especially after a frigid and snowy winter. Funny, usually after the most horrid winters, the spring flowers are glorious. With the renewal of nature, my insecurities certainly begin to vanish, with new hope in life and so much to motivate me to write. As I mentioned in my post from February, I seem to recluse and settle in winter with very few things to inspire after the holidays. That is why I love spring so much. I have a few new projects buzzing around in my head. But first, I need to clean up the old foliage so the new growth can really flourish. With temps still cold at night, in about another week I will be able to start working on my grounds which ALWAYS helps motivate me. There is something about communing with nature...we all need to do so. It is part of life. If you feel blocked or stuck, GO OUTSIDE and absorb all the wonders of spring. Birds are chirping like mad nesting and waiting for the arrival of their newborns. Trees are budding, and the earth is slowly turning from brown to green.

This year is full of new adventures for me, and I can't wait to share them all with you. More on that later, but for now I'll be focusing on my new ideas, and getting them written down. I am truly looking forward to doing it, especially after such a LONG writing absence.

I wish all of you a HAPPY SPRING and for tons of inspiration in the forthcoming months. 

Sending you all a VIRTUAL hug to start off this season on a positive note...
