Its Time to Sprout this Spring!

Sprout Time-Periwinkle Starr

Hey Y’all! Its been a minute since my last post and I want to thank you for checking in today. I trust your week has been off to an amazing start if your’re a Β ‘Fun Monday’ πŸ™‚ personality type but if not, the day usually begins with a little bit of pressure and tons of meetings :/ Anyways, its Springtime and its been so exhilarating to not have to wear as many layers (Yes, It gets cold in Dallas 😦 ) except for this past weekend where we had a hailstorm that made a friend of mines apartment complex look like a scene out of a movie with so many windscreens completely destroyed. There were tree branches and leaves E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E! So disrupting.

But I was thinking to myself that the concept of springtime isn’t just for plants; I like to think of it as a time to change things up…just a little bit (wink). If you’re aΒ regular on Periwinkle Starr, you do know that I don’t exactly find the concept of getting stuck, ruts or the idea of doing the same thing for long periods of time appealing πŸ˜€ I read an article somewhere that said: Doing something as simple as a task differently forces your brain to grow in another direction because (not quoting this verbatim), when a task is repeated over and over and it gets to a point where you do not need to think about it before executing it; your brain goes into what I like to call ‘autopilot or robot mode’ which leads to B-O-R-E-D-O-M in the long run. In my mind, I’m thinking about long factory assembly lines. Trust me, that ‘glazed-over, couch potato, in the zone’ routine takes the spark out of everyday living.

Lets Shake Things Up…A Little!

I can almost imagine a whiny voice saying ‘I just gave up so much for lent and now…THIS?! Lol, no one is asking you to give up anything…at least not today (wink). πŸ˜€ Just ‘try doing something you do on a regular or daily basis differently’. Thats It! πŸ˜€

  • Take a different route on your way home. You just might discover some new development, new shops, a sports bar or some real estate potential. You never know.
  • Step up and do something that takes you a tad bit out of your comfort zone – like stepping up to give a presentation for your team at work or volunteering to read to kids at your neighborhood library.
  • Rekindling your love for amusement park rides and all things outdoorsy even though you still feel tremors from the last ride you had 7 years ago..ha ha!
  • Try a new beverage at your favorite spot instead of getting that same old large caramel cappuccino with extra extra sugar E-V-E-R-Y T-I-M-E (a direct recipe for diabetes if you ask me :/ …but its oh sooo good). The tweaking possibilities are endless so why not give it a try!?

It’s time to sprout this spring guys so don’t be afraid to go for it (trust me i’m speaking to myself as well)! πŸ˜€ Let me know what things you would like to tweak over the next couple of days. Lots of love to readers who’ve been patiently waiting on the newest post; life gets busy sometimes but its always fun sharing my thoughts with you. Until I come your way next time, I remain

  1. Thanks for popping over to my blog.. You’re absolutely right – it’s time to ‘sprout in spring’ and get some new neural pathways growing.. When I worked in a corporate setting and attended meetings in the Board Room, I always found myself going to the same side of the table … I decided one day to sit on the opposite side of the table – it felt very different! Yep.. what new paths can I tread.. I’m gonna give that some thought! x

    • Hi Wendy!! I can relate 100 percent to what you said about (something that may appear to be so ‘simple’ like) sitting at the same side of the table during meetings and one day deciding to change it up. Thank you for sharing your experience and I wish you the very best!! πŸ™‚
