Cherry Blossoms and Rebirth - Our Fascination with New Beginnings!

www.accessprofilesblog.com












It is Spring and I am once again focusing on starting anew.  There have been many changes in my personal and professional life in the past year.  Each has me thinking about how "new beginnings" are what make life miraculous.......







There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”     Albert Einstein  



I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to visit the Cherry Blossoms in Washington D.C on numerous occasions - and it never grows old!


Each time I am awestruck by their beauty.  Judging by the amount of people that make the trek, I am not alone.


However, I believe that it is not just their beauty that makes the cherry blossoms such a draw.  I think it is also the feeling of renewal and a “fresh start” that captivate!



The truth is, being confronted by possibilities is intoxicating. There is a sense of euphoria that comes from knowing something new is possible.



I propose that this feeling is addictive!


















In my personal life, each time I visit a new city or someone in my family is graduating or getting married, I am able to feel a resurgence of anticipation and excitement.





My children are also a constant source of new beginnings.  The knowledge that so much is on the horizon for them fills me with a sense of wonder.


Professionally, starting my own business has been the greatest adventure.  Anyone who has ever done the same knows exactly what I mean.  Launching your own company is  filled with “firsts”. It is an obvious and natural time to feel anticipation and excitement.


That feeling is a little harder to replicate as the years go on.  But I do not believe it is impossible.


It think you can capture that feeling on a regular basis if you are open to it.  Being willing to take a new approach to an old problem or venturing out in a new direction can help cultivate that feeling of renewal.



Spring is the Perfect Time to Rekindle Your “Fresh Start”! "Tweet This"



The year is fully underway and the busyness that comes at the beginning of a new year has settled.


I think this is the ideal time to look for renewed inspiration in your business and in your life.  Inspiration is all around you.  The welcome bloom of the trees and the emergence of the first daffodils and crocuses - each serve as a reminder that rebirth is possible.


I challenge you to find your own inspiration.  My yearly visit to the cherry blossoms is one of mine.  What is yours?

  1. I really like the connection you feel for nature and human life. I too am very connected to nature and for me, the beautiful wisteria that blooms here in Georgia is bitter sweet. The vibrant, purple blooms are here and gone so quickly that I hungrily look for a glimpse of the vines everywhere we go. Thanks for sharing another wonderful article Kim!

    1. I knew we were in sync Penny! I find much inspiration in nature. The cherry blossoms are truly so beautiful that I am sure my pictures cannot even do them justice. The ocean has always been a strong pull for me also. I could sit and watch it for hours!

      I would love to see your wisteria. Have you taken pictures of your own when they are in full bloom? If so, I would love to see them. If not, be sure to do so and get a print made. This way you can see them year long!

      Thanks for your wonderful comments! Kim

  2. This article is very timely for me, Kim. My husband and I recently sold the business he had for 20 years and we not only started a new business together, but we both have started our own individual businesses. Talk about new beginnings! It is kind of scary, but exciting at the same time. Your article has re-inspired and rejuvenated me. Thanks!

    1. You are definitely embracing the idea of Spring and "new beginnings" Diane! Your comment that it is scary and exciting at the same time is so true. Many times when we begin something new we experience both.

      I am happy that what I wrote mirrors what you are going through. You are a wonderful supporter!
