SKATE TO SOAR

Spring is here! (sort-of) In Toronto we haven't quite said goodbye cold, goodbye snow, goodbye heavy winter gear yet. Still, around the corner there's warmer air, longer and brighter days, and birds chirping - signifying the start of flowers blooming, liveliness, and renewal. The dark and muted tones of the outdoors will transform into lush and vibrant landscapes. Mother nature is flourishing and calling us to do the same. Spring is the perfect time to refresh and replenish our goals and intentions.

The rain washes up the last of the snow and waters the seeds taking root in the ground, preparing the earth for growth and life. So, the first step in goal regeneration, of course, is spring-cleaning! Take time to clean out and de-clutter your home, your bedroom, and your skate bag. After you’ve done this notice how awesome it feels. I recently cleared out a bunch of binders I had kept with all my university notes. As if I’m actually ever going to reread my lecture scribbles. I haven’t looked at them for years, so I went through the binders scanning for anything important to keep. In the end I held onto about three documents relating to my teaching certification and one essay with professor comments because it was a game changer for my confidence in my writing skills. I was able to get rid of (through recycling) six large binders filled with paper and what I kept is now stored in a small file. Talk about making space! Instantly I felt lighter and freer.
