Everything Changes, But Are…..
In a few days, it will be spring. Hopefully it will usher in warmer temperatures and the beginning of a long hot summer (fingers crossed).
We are expecting things to be different because we are all aware of the fact that things are supposed to change, it’s a new season, something different, something new.
Now, if you woke up on April 30th, and it was snowing outside you would be upset, or if one of those 20 degree days showed up in July there would be a problem.
Take a look at the seasons, they show you that things were meant to change. Winter, Summer, Fall, Spring all have their appointed time, and my life and your life are no different. Change is natural and normal, so why is changing such a difficult subject when it comes to you and me.
Most people hate change. The job changes, the body responds differently than it did before, the kids grow up, the friendship runs it’s course. If you don’t expect changes in life, you are going to be greatly disappointed. As someone who wants to be happy you need to approach your own life realizing that different seasons bring or bear different gifts, and if you are going to take advantage of them you need to understand the seasons.
In the Spring of our lives, you need to plant seeds, meaning you need to find things to invest your time in. What areas in your life do you need to improve, where do you need to growth and development? Take inventory of where you are and where you want to be. Then identify the first steps you need to take to grow and develop? Are there classes that you need to take, is there an idea you need to explore? Do you want a new job, are you looking for a promotion where you are? Spring is a building and preparation season. So, you need to prepare. Growth WILL come IF you do the work.
As we approach spring, choose to make it your springboard! What do you want to accomplish and what work are you putting in to achieving your goals? If you want something today that you don’t have, what kind of structure do you need to put into place to get it. This is a season of preparation. So, prepare, so you are ready for the doors that open up to you! Everything changes make sure you do too!
