Happy Monday! Yesterday was the first day of spring, and I found myself really thinking about the change from winter to spring (or summer to fall depending on where you live), but also the metaphor behind us merging into a new season.
Spring is a time of intention and new beginnings. It's a time where we plant seeds into the earth, and after a while seedlings start to rise and whatever we planted begins to mature. With time, love, care, and essential elements like water and sunshine, towards the end of the season we have the fruits of our labor.
This is a season of new growth and change, a time where the light shines a little brighter and stays a little longer. A time where we birth new ideas, take action, and achieve goals.
I sat down with a cup of coffee yesterday morning and really thought about the growth that I wanted to set in place for this coming season. Here were a few of my intentions:
- Spend more time outdoors. With the extra sunshine comes more time that can be spent in nature. Whether that means taking a hike, going on walks, or even having dinner on the patio.
- Less Netflix in the evening, more reading. HA! This made me laugh when I typed it out. I am certainly not judging myself, however I did notice this last winter we spent more time in the evening watching Netflix. Partially because it was dark, and partially because it was relaxing. Moving into spring I'd like to substitute reading, if I feel like it.
- Smoothies! Mmm...I'm so excited for this! I choose to eat as seasonally as possible, and for me, smoothies taste and feel so much better in the spring and summer. Cool, light, and refreshing!
- Move through my fears. This is specifically related to my business. There are a few things I have been wanting to do, but in the past fear has stopped me. I feel ready and excited for what's ahead!
What is your intention this season? What ideas would you like to plant and see grow?
I encourage you to dig deep into your heart and ask yourself those questions, and any more that you may have. If you have any further questions, I am here for additional support.
