#198: Lighten Up

To Put the Spring in Spring

One of the first new skills I learned after arriving in the USA was time management. No, not productivity management, but how to time my falling back and springing forward.

That’s right. I had to learn how to save daylight because my land of birth had not yet developed the power to change time.

Now that spring is finally here (I think), let me tell you in three words how to really spring forward into spring.

Put It Down.

I could say take it off, but you might misunderstand me.

During winter, we add many layers to keep warm. Come spring time, you must start shedding the extra bits. They just add weight and make you too heavy to spring lightly into spring.

Winter is history already. And history is heavy. Put your history down, else it will weigh you down, take the spring out of your step and the fun out of your future.

Welcome to my side of the nonsense divide.
