Dear Spring Weather,

You mirror the yin and yang of my complicated mind. You can be warm, inviting, even confident. But you can also be cold, harsh, and create doubt in my head. You want me to embrace the sunshine and the summer vibe, but then you flip and want me to remember the grueling winter efforts, the days that make me who I am at the core.

You are all over the place. You are complicated and ever changing. You chose to be whomever you want to be, whenever you want to be.

And I’ve got to say, I love that about you. It’s like you take a glimpse of my complicated mind and act it out in the air. You are crazy and calm. You are beautiful and piercing. Never knowing what you will give, you keep me on my toes! You keep me guessing, and I love the complexity of our relationship.

But just make up your mind for today, because I need to dress for a run.

With love,
