Are You Really Talking About the Weather?

Yes and no. This past week, the weather has impacted me in more ways than one. For starters, it turned me into a sick puppy. Yep, right before midterms. I’m not really 100% me, and I feel like my world is becoming a sort of whirlwind, pushing and pulling me where it may. But I’m going to make the most of this roller coaster ride, starting here on my blog. Being slightly uprooted doesn’t really faze me, as you might expect from someone who titles their blog Perpetual Dalliance. The truth is I’m hardly ever here, in-the-now, fixed in the moment. I’m usually escaping somewhere mentally, whether it be in another time or place. And I always love the opportunity to incorporate this into my physical world.

Early March is a transitional period in terms of weather. It’s on the edge of winter and on the brink of spring. Not quite either/or, but the combination makes for an…interesting experience. If you (and I’m in this boat as well) want the take a chance and benefit from this time, use it to inspire you to find meaning in your surroundings. Now is the time to turn the temperamental, indecisive side of ol’ Pisces into the creative, adaptable one you know it can be. So we can grab that fish by the tail and tell it “Hey, I’m running this show!”

Out with the winter/ in with the spring. Out with the old/in with the new. But not completely. There’s still a mix for the moment, a blend of distinct characteristics. This can be experienced temporary through the weather, but also in more tangible things like the items below found on PureGreenDesign blog.

 What about you? What's your favorite time of the year? How could you incorporate its elements into your life permanently?

  1. I think you've asked some fabulous questions...that we should all give a bit more thought to! I'd say that my favorite time of the year is early summer, especially early summer evenings. Slightly cool and breezy with pungent smells of blossoming trees and...I could go on!

    I'm not sure how I'd incorporate this feeling of early summer into my life. Maybe add more flowy, minimalist items into my room decor and wardrobe? Hmmm...I love that you asked this :)
