Transitioning into Spring with terminal cancer

Hello Friends!
Spring is in the air....supposedly!  Well today is the first official calendar day of spring.  I have seen Some signs of it.  Outside there are green shoots of various bulb plants sprouting from the earth, and I have spotted a robin or two.  Which I hear tell, means spring is just around the corner.  Another sign of spring for me at least, is the sudden desire to deep clean, shed things unused and reevaluate life.  I have found myself becoming more organized.  Especially in the fridge and the pantry.  But there are more personal and deeper spring transitions occurring in my life.  We added Gracie recently which has shifted the balance of things somewhat.  Adding a whole new dimension, and some extra work to our family.  I have also found myself weeding out time suckers.  I am trying to be a bit more conscious in how I am living.  Today I shed about 50 sites I had email subscriptions to.  This will save me time with my email.  Also I got rid of a bunch of youtube subscriptions that weren't adding value.  You know the ones, shopping hauls, beauty videos and various news sources.  They were all just causing my head to be full of crap.  It felt so awesome to shed some of these things.  I also have been avoiding facebook a bit in the past few days.  It hasn't hurt a bit to not be checking in throughout the day.  Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying that this is how EVERYbody should spring clean.  I am just sharing that I feel pretty positive about the things I have been adding and taking away from my life as spring prepares to come.  After living almost 6 full yrs knowing that I have terminal cancer, I feel that I want more of a calm and peaceful life, with candle, books, music, good food, cuddles from pups and not least of all great family and friends.  It doesn't do it for me with FB or youtube or email any longer.  It needs to be more personal, and more peaceful.  So, that has been my spring forward experience so far.  What's yours?  Tell me in the comments.
Love you guys,
Leslie
