Tomorrow is the first day of spring and I am ecstatic! Winter is not my season, it’s when flowers die, I feel like I’m in a black and white movie, and there’s darkness everywhere. I’m a spring and summer girl. I need my sunshine, my flowers, and long walks in the wilderness. I thought I’d use this post to reflect back on winter and what I’m looking forward to as I spring ahead.
Although winter and I aren’t friends, I get that the season can act like a rebirth of sorts. In my “hibernation” this winter, I’ve paid close attention to the signs of my greater purpose in my coaching work and in my personal reflection.
There’s a trust I have in myself and in the universe that can feel foreign when you first dive into it. It’s like trying sushi for the first time when I was in college (I grew up on fast-food garbage and vegetables in BPA-laden cans). At first, I was grossed out by the idea and the textures were different at first.
Now, that I’ve taken that risk, sushi is my favorite food. I trust that where I am today matters for who I will become tomorrow. I don’t know who that is yet, but I sense she’ll be better who I am today.
We cannot move forward without reflecting on the past and taking a risk for our future.
Time to Launch
Now that we are a year into COVID’s garbage trail of garbage, I have found a rhythm. It’s not one that I imagined in my Life Design, however, there are plenty of things still out of my control right now. My dedication to helping others and design the life I want are an evolution that continues on in small, but meaningful ways.
I am embracing these new rhythms of continued change. As the world develops into a new normal, I am standing here on my cliff ready to jump into an ocean of possibility. I’m ready!
