A Different Kind of Spring Break





'Spring... a time for renewal and new ideas.'

When the beautiful, crisp brown leaves on the ground no longer crunch under our soles, the birds begin to sing their lullabies and the sweet smells of lavender, daffodils and magnolia float among a much calmer flow of wind, you know exactly what season is trying to break through.

I decided to leave work earlier today in order to take this all in - after all the spring is probably my favourite season. It is a time for renewal and new ideas which comes at the perfect moment - right after the New Year. It really does present the opportunity for you to evaluate the first two or three months of the year and make relevant changes.

  

I mean, who wants to wait until next December to do the 'New Year, new me' thing again? Definitely not me! 

Each year, without even planning it, my mind begins to crave a major de-clutter; not only of material junk I have carried into the new year, but also of the unnecessary people who have weighed down my life and blocked the pathway for all the blessings I'm supposed to be receiving. What's crazy is that, the moment you let go of these burdens, it literally feels like a door has been opened and a huge weight as been lifted from your shoulders! As a result, I have become a  huge believer of the whole 'clear environment equals clear mind' mantra,  so I am always looking for ways to ensure my home, office desk, bag etc. are as clear as possible, as the smallest amount of clutter can completely disrupt my thought process. Who else is like this?!
 
 
I also make sure I take regular walks during work hours as I really do believe that balance is key - that is, a good work balance mixed with enough time for my thoughts and planning (away from my phone and especially away from 'the gram'!) 

I absolutely love my job, but I also understand that 
life is more than career goals and salaries

You need to take in new experiences that will expand your mind and inspire you to venture out your comfort zone and try something different. I value the hours between my work shift because once I get home, I have other priorities which most of the time, take up the remainder of my concentration and energy. I mean, once I've cleaned, worked on Colbert London, caught up with friends and family, worked out, made (or ordered) dinner and spent time with my love, I'm often completely wiped out for the evening!

So if I can leave you with even just one piece of advice, it's this - make sure you have enough time for you. Make sure you look after yourself and really show yourself the attention and care you would like others to show you because no one is going to set the standard for that better than you can.
