Spring Creates New Life
Spring is on its way. The snow is melting, the grass is exposing itself, the birds are returning and chirping, the animals are shedding their thick fur, the sun is shining, the temperature is rising, and the flowers are budding. Spring is the epitome of new life. This season brings out excitement, new goals and playfulness in all of us. We replace winter coats with spring jackets. We replace the confining, heavy clothing with free moving, light clothing. We replace unmotivated mindsets with energized inspiration. We replace our “stay inside” mentality with “let’s play outside” attitude. We burst out of hibernation and into the expression of freedom and new life.
But Spring can also be a season of rain and wind. This rain and wind is necessary for the cultivation of the plants, grass and beautiful flowers we get to experience in summer. What are we doing right now to cultivate ourselves for the next season of our lives? What are you doing right now to prepare for what is to come? This is a wonderful time to re-evaluate where you are in your relationships, your career, your fitness, your health, your self-care and your mindset. What area can use a little more cultivating to prepare you for the next season of your life? Only you can answer this question.
Once you determine the area of your life you would like to cultivate, how do you go about accomplishing this? Will you spend more intentional time with loved ones? Expand your education for a new position or career? Invest in a personal trainer or new fitness studio to become more accountable with your fitness regimen? Focus on cleaner eating habits? Add more “me time” to your schedule to ensure you are taking care of you? Or seek meditation or quiet time in your days to enhance your mindset and productivity? The list goes on.
I invite you to take some time in a quiet space to explore your head and heart space to discern what area of your life you feel drawn to cultivating. Take some notes and then sit on your thoughts for a couple of days. Then revisit your notes and thoughts and maybe revamp some, define more details, research your options, and create a plan of action to make your next season of life bloom! Allow your excitement and passion to spring you into the next direction of your life. Let this Spring season create new life in YOU!
