The “First Day of Spring” or the vernal equinox began in the Northern Hemisphere on Friday, March 20. At the time of the vernal equinox, the sun rises exactly in the east and sets exactly in the west. The days and nights are approximately equal, as well.

Springtime is truly a beautiful season when all of nature flourishes with a sense of hopefulness and new beginnings. The Earth is revitalized and replenished in preparation for the coming summer months.

Here we are, about 90 days into 2015, and many of us are entering into the fourth month of the goals we’ve set for the new year. According to Forbes.com, more than 40 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. And Forbes cites University of Scranton research which states that only 8 percent of people actually achieve their New Year’s resolutions.

Perhaps you’re among the 92 percent of goal-setters who have dropped the ball on your 2015 plans.
