Hi there dear Readers, how are you all doing?
Today’s blog article is inspired by the beautiful Spring sunshine that has come to visit us. I hope I am not jinxing things, but it certainly seems as if Spring has arrived here in Cape Town.
Spring is the season of rebirth after the cold winter months. Spring is when people start smiling more.
Spring is all about new beginnings!
Today I would like to issue you all with a challenge – do something new! Be bold, be brave, be fabulous!
1) Grow a little this Spring
Spring is a wonderful time to start planting. Visit your local nursery and choose plants that you love. You don’t have to be a gardening expert in order to experience the joy of seeing your plants and flowers grow. Get some colour in your life – plant flowers that are bright and beautiful. Don’t feel obliged to plant your flowers in neat rows all according to colour. Mix it up a bit. Don’t be afraid to be a little daring.
2) Say Howdee to a new hobby
It’s absolutely untrue that you can’t do anything creative or funky or artistic. You don’t have to be a genius at anything – just take up a new hobby. Do something you’ve always wanted to do. Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do it. So what if you can’t sing? Grab a hairbrush and sing as if you are serenading the world. Think you can’t paint? Grab some paint and literally splash it onto a canvas. Go a little crazy.
Have you always wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument? It doesn’t matter if you have less rhythm than a teaspoon. Stop thinking you can’t do it. Find a teacher that can turn you from zero to hero with a guitar.
If you are the shy type, don’t worry – there are plenty of hobbies that you can do in the privacy of your own home. Nobody has to ever see your wonderful creations. It doesn’t matter what you do, just do something!
3) Let’s get physical
Get your happy hormones pumping through your body with a bit of activity. Don’t worry, I’m not suggesting that you trek up Kilimanjaro. Just do something that gets you moving. Even if you are the world’s biggest slob, you can still do something that won’t kill you.
Today I challenge you to do something new or different. Live out your dreams and fantasies. Have the confidence to try new things. Be as camp or as geeky as you want to be.
