Spring is desperately trying to break through the season-
To bless us with its sunshiny state of being,
Bringing a sense of joy and beauty back into our world.
When we think of Spring, most of us think about; joy, new beginnings, hope, and moving forward but is it the thought of Spring that keeps us waiting patiently for positive change? Maybe it's in the hope of a change in season that satisfies us or is it that Old Man Winter finally walks away..? I mean, it's nice to think about a brighter future and it's really wonderful to keep hope but it isn't until Winter walks away, actually leaves and evaporates into thin air, that things start to warm up. You see, thought and hope only go so far- It's not until we walk away from the blistering cold that we can feel the warmth. It's not until a choice is made for change- That life begins anew.
I believe the actions of life are reflective, in the ways in which we can live our own lives. Season's change to teach us that nothing is permanent- It reminds us, that we have choice and that choice- Is our power. There is something liberating in choosing to walk away- Last year was an eye-opener for me. My season was changing without warning, as they often do and for the first time in my life, I made a choice for change- I decided to walk away.. From the people, places, and things that kept me in the blistering cold and away from the sun. It was like a switch went off in my head and a course of action naturally took place. The season changed-
Nothing is permanent and nothing stays the same,
Even within the season of its own time.
You see, I've thought about having better jobs, more money and better health. I've hoped, for soul-connected, romantic relationships, stronger friendships and even closer family relations. I've put positive energy and lots of effort into all these things but it wasn't until I walked away- from that which didn't feed me well, that I was able to make a space for greater experiences and my life, truly began new. Walking away doesn't mean you are mad, rejected, hold any grudges or resentment. It just means you are making choices that suit you well, that suit your circumstances and supports your future thoughts, hopes and dreams in your favor. Remember, the seasons don't hold onto what they experienced during their season. They just walk away when its time- And if and when they come around again, each and every time they do, the experience is much different because they come back with fresh eyes and are free to be as they are naturally.
I invite you to take a look at the people, places, and things that are in your life right now and evaluate whether these experiences are filled with nourishment and good fruit for you. I challenge you to look at the choices for change and greater possibilities of experience for you. Are there people, places and things in your life right now that you may need to consider walking away from to greater support a personal experience that gives you warmth and good favor? Think carefully, write it down and practice utilizing your personal power in choosing to make change. Have fun with it!
