It's May 1st, and for some reason, I am overcome by a feeling of total rejuvenation. May has brought a renewed sense of commitment and dedication to getting things done and doing them right. I suddenly feel inspired to clean out my closet, cook at home, drink more water, and call old friends. I feel excited to stop collecting stuff that I don't need, spending money I don't have, and then feeling guilty when it's all said and done. I'm ready to plan for the summer, organize picnics with friends, and be intentional about how I am going to spend my month off. I'm looking forward to wrapping up internship, walking across the stage as "Doctor Allison," and living back with Matt during the week. I'm suddenly bursting with energy and inspiration, ready to face some of things I've been avoiding for some time. I'm not sure what it is about May 1st, but there's definitely something different. And I'm ready as hell to run with it, take chances, get moving, and embrace all that life has to offer.
So cheers to you, May 1st. I think you're just what I needed.
