Do That Which Makes You Happy

Spring is finally here in Colorado

Finally, Spring is trying to show itself here in Castle Rock.  This week is the first warm week we have had all year and there are even signs of grass turning green and plants beginning to appear.


Feeling the warm sunshine while walking, running, or cycling is a wonderful feeling, especially after the winter we have had this year.


 A time to sprout and grow

Do That Which Makes You Happy - cycling for me

For a gift several years ago, my mom gave me this journal because of the quote and the fact that it had a bike on it.

“Do that which makes you happy”

Reflect on the quote for a bit and think about what makes you happy.  It’s time to work on those things that YOU want to do, not on what others want you to do.


If you want to ride your bike more, do it!

If it’s spending more time outdoors with your family, do it!

If you want to spend your evenings watching The Bachelor re-runs, please pick something else.

If it’s starting a Friday night pizza night with the kids, do it!

If it’s training for that race you have been thinking about, go register and make it happen!



Take that first step

Spring is a great time of year to refresh, regenerate, and start making things happen.  Take advantage of the extra hour of sunlight, the warmer days, and the fresh new feeling of Spring.  The first step is the hardest, but it’s not as hard as you think it is.


Once started, the feelings of accomplishment and progress will keep moving you towards your goals and those things that make you happy.


What are you waiting for?  Go for it this Spring.
