Let’s send up new shoots. Get rid of the old dried-up leaves and twigs. Open a fresh eye on the world. Let the still small voice that knows there is something emerging get a bit louder.
All of us feel a bit dug under sometimes. The world has been a chaotic place at times and then a turn of the head or a new fresh day brings order, new hope or even a monumental change in point of view.
It’s time to clear out, refresh, take a look at what isn’t feeling right and tweak it until it does.
I’ve been struck by the resilience I’ve been witnessing in all parts of the world. We are amazing. Every one of us.
Recently I made a major move, healed from a serious illness, and continued stepping forward on the journey… being present and ready for what’s next.
I believe all of us are making our way. We step over rocks, climb bigger mountains, and take our next steps. If we are paying attention, we create meaning.
Times of seasonal transition are perfect to take a fresh look. Yesterday I cleared a bunch of dead plants away and cut back the ones that could be saved. Suddenly there was possibility of new life. I love to see that shift and recognize that we are the shift. We just have to pay attention.
That’s when I take a fresh look at what is happening in my life, what is happening around me, where I’m putting my focus and why.
We are multifaceted beings, so underlying the activities we are doing are the thoughts and feelings we have about them.
Here are a few questions to get the ball rolling:
- What do the (activities) mean to us?
- What importance do they hold in our lives?
- What are the benefits or the drawbacks?
- Are they essential or can they be removed?
Sometimes it is good to sort out where we are putting our attention. Sometimes what’s important is to stop a moment and breathe.
Take stock of all that is happening; what you are feeling emotionally and physically; what you are thinking… and see if there is a need for a different point of view or a different course of action with whatever is in the forefront of your days.
Often, a change in focus opens up a completely different feeling about what comes next.
Spring is the ideal time to take the next step to accelerate YOUR next step.
Choose the inspired life you want to live.
