Something about the springtime smell of sunshine and roses in full bloom seems to give me an extra shot of motivation. With school coming to an end the German word “Aufbruch” comes to mind. It’s a word that means “awakening” or “start”. Life is cyclical and this year one cycle is ending and another is beginning. Time to put all that knowledge to good use. It’s a little bit scary, quite frankly. Endings and beginnings always are. But they are also a lot like the dawn. Before the sun comes up, it’s impossible to see what the day will be like but then, the sun comes over the horizon and you can see forever. Of course, the day may be grey and cloudy but at some point, hours, days–weeks, if you’re in London–later, the skies clear and you’re on you’re way. That’s where I am now. I’ve got a new attitude and I’m on my way!
