Spring is a great season right after winter and tied with fall. I love skiing, so it’s bittersweet, but I can now trail run in perfect weather. The one this that is very cool about spring is the feeling of aliveness!
When I think about personal growth and rebirth, the symbolism is so clear and positive this time of year. It’s everywhere you look! So, let’s think about how you can learn from nature’s beautiful cycle and blossom into your brightest, best self.
✅ 𝗗𝗶𝗴 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗶𝗿𝘁. Before we get to the renewal process, we have to get rid of a lot of junk – just like nature uses winter to clear the decks before the explosions of life we see in spring. So, go ahead and get your hands dirty… pull up some weeds… find and protect your roots. You want to nurture your spirit and your psyche, so it’s primed for new life.
✅ 𝗣𝗹𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝘀𝗲𝗲𝗱𝘀. This is a wonderful time to try new activities and perspectives. What will grow, and what will simply not take root? It will be interesting to find out! No judgment. No excuses. Give yourself the freedom to explore.
✅ 𝗧𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗴𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗻. Everything needs sunshine and water to grow and thrive – including your attitude and progress toward goals. Get outside every day for fresh air and spring light, and take care of your body with water, exercise and rest.
✅ 𝗕𝗹𝗼𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗺 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗼𝘀𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗴𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘁𝘂𝗱𝗲. It’s a simple fact that when you’ve done all you can do, it’s best to leave the outcomes to other forces (like nature). And when your heart is full of gratitude, you have more room for love and selflessness, spreading joy like another flower along the path.
In all honesty, I don’t garden. I could think of a million more things I would want to do before this, but I like the analogy. 😂
If you follow these steps, I believe you’ll have an amazing spring and set yourself up for a spectacular summer, as well. We’re a part of the same nature as the plants, after all, so lock into that power – and grow!
It’s not just working out, it’s building a foundation for a better life.
