There is something magical about this time of year. I have started every full-time job I've ever had, moved twice and generally always had a sense of excitement and joy about the future at this time of the year. .
The days are getting longer, the sun is showing up with greater regularity, and the temperature is rising, even if ever-so-slightly. Spring is so full of life and energy, and I absolutely love this time of year for that exact reason.
My partner is an incredible gardener and plant parent extraordinaire (whereas I am the Brown Thumb Queen 💀😂). It's been inspiring and humbling to watch as he plans out his garden and has begun to plant seeds that will take months to blossom to their full potential. The blood, sweat, tears, patience and love invested into these tiny plants results in an amazingly bountiful garden that will leave us grinning ear-to-ear come July.
This whole process got me thinking about my guiding word for 2020: Invest. Investing your time, energy, money and love into the people and things closest to your heart is easiest the way I know of to reach joy with consistency. Whether you're growing tomatoes or your business, you have to put in the time upfront in order to reap the fruits (or vegetables) of your labor. .
