It’s not hard to tell when spring is coming. Flowers! Pollen! Sneezing! Baby animals! Sunshine! The temptation is to throw all the sweaters into deep storage, break out the flip-flops, and stake out a lounge chair in the sun.
The thing is, spring is a process. We start with buds and then proceed to flowers and then leaves and then fruit. Sure, the potential for a peach is right there, balled up on the branch, but it isn’t there yet.
We need to be patient and give ourselves time to unfold and develop. (Yes, I am talking about fitness, too.) Breathe. Enjoy the warmth. Let the stretch come when it comes.
