Inspiring storyteller, writer and speaker, Dr. Nina Kelly tells readers that springtime inspires exploring new opportunities, careers, relationships as well as the possibility of inspiring the letting go of careers, friendships and/or relationships if need be.
New Orleans, LA – March 23, 2019 – Dr. Nina M. Kelly, Inspirational Storyteller, Coach, Author and Co-Author of The Big Question with Larry King, and Success Mastery and Success Breakthroughs with Jack Canfield, recently posted a new article on her website entitled, “Spring Forward,” in which Dr. Kelly discusses the many wonders of the season.
“Entering into daylight savings time as we anticipate the arrival of Spring generates hopefulness,” Dr. Kelly writes. She continues, “Even before the weather settles down, we get to experience a period of extended light in the form of longer days. The reminder to set our clocks an hour ahead captured in the expression, “spring forward,” elicits a sense of joyfulness.”
As Dr. Kelly points out, “The transition from darkness to light, from cold to warmth, from gray to a rainbow of greens and yellows, purples and pinks as colorful trees and flowers burst into bloom puts a spring in our step and visions of wonderful things to come in our heads.” She goes on to say, “The change of season always remind me that everything changes. Nothing remains static. We are always moving, changing, given an opportunity to grow.”
According to Dr. Kelly, “No season displays this transition more beautifully and often more chaotically than spring. We love the newness of things, relationships. The newness of feeling love and joy, excitement and the prospects that await us as we embark into the unexplored.” She states, “College students anticipate the fun they’ll have on spring break. Easter brings its symbols of resurrection both religious and those from Mother Nature.”
“We also think about cleaning our homes at this time of year,” says Dr. Kelly. She elaborates, “We pull out the bright table settings and the lighter bedding. We go through closets and drawers getting rid of things we no longer wear and storing winter clothes. Our wardrobe begins to reflect the colors of spring.”
Dr. Kelly then goes on to question, “So, now I ask, what about your mind?” “This is a great time to review where you feel stuck in old beliefs that may no longer serve you or others in your life,” she writes, adding, “Perhaps it’s time to explore some new ways of looking at life.”
