Spring:The Season of New Beginnings and Change


                   “Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.”-Victor Hugo

Spring. Allergy Season. The transition into summer. Whatever name you give it, spring is currently my favorite season.

I say that because it will change. Flash forward a few months and then SUMMER will be my favorite season, because its a transition from the flowers and the growing sprouts that peek out of the ground to warm sunny beach days and ice cream. It’s a refreshing change.

Change is good. Its the flowers growing out of the cracks, the green grass, and the smell of fresh rain on the concrete. Because spring is the essence of change. It’s a new beginning, a fresh start. So much is changing in a blink of an eye. It’s all happening so fast at such a rapid rate.

But the same time, change is something scary to me. Its like walking into an uncharted territory with no sense of direction, no one to guide you but yourself. That’s what change is. Something foreign.

But that’s what terrifies me. As a sophomore in highschool, my life revolves around change. Because the next few years matter to me. Its not just about what happens here in high school, its about the preparation for the “real” world.


It’s being independent.


It’s being in my own college.

It’s being an adult.

And that little part of me says I’m not ready. There is always that sliver of doubt, that possibility, that I’m not prepared for what I’m bound to face. I’ve spent 15 years of my life hiding out in the shelter of school, a competitive, public, and safe environment.


What if I’m not ready to leave?

And yet, I can help feel excited for what’s to come.

I will be meeting new people, discovering new things, having new experiences, and learning what it means to become my own person. Everything will change and I’ll just have to embrace it.

Because think about it. If spring never ended and the seasons ever changed we’d be stuck in same circle, nothing would be exciting, and there would be absolutely nothing to look forward to.


Change is inevitable and its something unavoidable. All we can do is prepare ourselves for what is to come, hope that Change will play if fair, and regret nothing.

    Change…I have always disliked changes in my daily life. I guess its that uncomfortable feeling of something different, something different in your life. Yet, without change, life would be…well it would simply be plain boring. This blog post not only perfectly captures the feelings of change, but it also reassures those who fear it. Accompanied by beautiful pictures, this blog post is the helping hand you need to take a tiny step out of your comfort shell into the constantly changing world.
