This morning, as the sun’s rays began to peek over the horizon, I awoke to the beautiful melody of birds singing their jubilant springtime song. As I listened to their chorus, it was almost as if they were welcoming me to the beginning of a new day. The music and golden hue that cast itself through my window filled me with a sense of hopefulness and an energy I haven’t possessed in quite some time. It was as if the the new day’s dawning awoke a piece of myself that had been in hibernation the last few months. Today, those cobwebs were brushed away, and I was once again filled with hope and wonder, and a fresh, new outlook on life.
