Blogger Diary: A Fresh Start

Spring always seems to be a time of new beginnings. The change of weather fosters the growth of new plant and animal life – and that’s not all. I always seem to go through the most drastic changes in my life during the springtime, too.

This year is no different. Last weekend I moved into a new house with two of my really good friends — who both happen to work at Free People! (One of them might even be FP Jana…) Out of my lonely little loft and into a real house with real people. I’m so excited to decorate. This place has so much space compared to what I’m used to, so I feel like I can finally create the living environment of my dreams. It felt so good to walk into an empty bedroom of pure white walls and a wooden floor on that first day, let out a big exhale, and say, “Okay. Where do I begin?”

Moving into a new place has allowed me to get organized. I know exactly what I own, I know where I put it, and I know where everything is going to stay. But I also feel a fresh start in my state of mind. I feel a strong push of motivation… I’m going to finish projects I’ve started, start projects I’ve been putting off, and just generally be more “on top” of everything. I feel like I have control of my life, and I can steer it in whichever way seems best. I’m so excited for what’s to come – in this house, in the spring, and just in life as a whole.

Does anyone else feel like springtime offers a fresh start?

I think this feeling must be universal! Surprisingly, Spring Cleaning is common in lots of cultures. Iranian New Years (Norooz) is even celebrated in the Spring!
