(Mike Allen)

Spring is here, and nice weather along with it. I’ve had a drastic change of heart toward the seasons recently, and I think it’s an interesting subject to reevaluate from time to time. That subject, of course, brings up an all-important question: “What season is your favorite?”

The most common answer I have heard over the course of my life has been Fall or autumn, with summer as a close second. I fell into this camp for the longest time because, well, fall is great. Summer is terrible, but I’ll get into that some other time.

Spring however, is not a season I appreciated until recently. As an adult, it feels like the year really “starts” around St. Patrick’s Day. The cold weather finally breaks, birds suddenly exist again, sports and other activities rev up, and so on. There’s also that feeling of, “Hey, the whole year is still ahead of me.” That perspective can provide some energy for projects, or late starts to New Year’s resolutions. It’s a top-tier season, and I never realized it.

So get outside, take a deep breath and enjoy spring. Just take some allergy medication first.
