There is a stream that cuts across our backyard. Yesterday, it seemed completely frozen. When I looked closer I realized that, right under the ice, there was this faint vein of water moving. There is life at the bottom of this stream.
There are frogs, fish, and all kinds of creatures snug in the mud, waiting and preparing for the thaw. Spring is coming and when the temperatures are right and the environment hospitable, they’ll find their way to the surface and they’ll begin yet another cycle.
We too are creatures of nature. We live our lives in cycles; endings and new beginnings and everything in between. Every cycle has its own purpose. There are tasks we need to accomplish. The better we are at being present with ourselves, the easier and more purposeful our transitions become.
You can try being present with yourself now.
Take a couple of deep breaths and let your body relax. As you continue to breathe, gently bring these questions to consciousness.
What is changing in your life right now?
What is asking to be released?
Are you ready to begin letting go of the old and create space for the new?
Where do you begin?
- Are you looking at your surroundings and thinking it’s time to change a few things?
- When you reflect upon the people in your life and your relationships what does your heart tell you? Are there people or behaviors that are not supportive of you and your peace of mind?
- Have you started feeling more energetic and excited, only you’re not sure why?
- Do you catch yourself dreaming of new possibilities and different ways of doing things?
- Are you ready to look ahead and plan?
- What do you need to make things happen?
This month’s posts will be all about our exit strategy . . . exiting Winter and coming to the surface for a breath of fresh air and brand new possibilities. Stay tuned . . .
