Nature has many lessons embedded in its splendor and spring is one of them. Spring means to come into being by growth or to take an upward course from. It also means to come out of cover, make a shift or to move. All of these definitions mean one thing; it is time for change.
Spring is exciting. The early flowers are starting to come up, the sun is stronger and you can feel the difference even it if is still cold! If you are like me, you are thinking about one thousand things you want to get started on. I like the thrill of the beginning and have to fight against chasing the 'shiny' things! I want you to be excited, however, I am asking that you get laser focused about your renewal. What are the
key things you need to do that will make the most difference in your life? What are the stepping stones you need to put in place for a good spring launch? What do you need to remove to give you the space to launch?
When you look outside, you will see that spring uncovers gradually. There are steps and phases a flower goes through before you see it in its full glory. You are no different. I am talking about a deliberate statement of change and one action to confirm it, then another...and another...and another. Before you know it, you are on your way to getting sprung! There are going to be steps that are easy and some that are difficult. Some that are successful and some that are not. Look for the lesson in each experience and keep moving. Let the words of negaholics roll off you like water on a duck's back! Let no one define you! Create, recreate and enjoy the journey.
You will find that you no longer define yourself by a job title. You revisit an opportunity that you put on the shelf and labeled 'too out there'. You leave the cloth jungle and become an entrepreneur. You get a makeover and you DO look 10 years younger! You set limits and eliminate high-maintenance relationships. You do not take into your spirit words that do not inspire you. You draw your line in the sand and say enough! Dare to not have all the answers and be okay with being vulnerable and raggedy at the start. You are a new you that has been sprung by spring. You are ready to step into new shoes that fit just right and they don't hurt.
