May Is Not Just For FlowersCatherine Pulsifer, © 2012
What we all wait for is the spring to come to us full of beautiful flowers after a long cold winter. For those who live in the deep south, there is no waiting for what us northerners live through with the cold, windy, snowy winter where frigid weather keeps all things dormant.
Waiting for Life?
For some, the waiting for spring reflects more about their life than they would want to admit. The point is this; those who wait for May also may find that they wait for a new life to begin.
But, just like the process of starting new plants indoor ready to be planted with a head start in spring, so it is that you can prepare for new growth in your own life by not waiting until it comes forth on its own.
Do You Plant Your Own Seeds?
We all need to plant seeds in order to spring to life. Similarly, you can't climb a mountain starting at the top. It takes preparation, tools, skills and a set path to follow one step at a time.
Over the years, I have spoken with hundreds of people who desired to have a different life whether that be a new career, a promotion, or a different lifestyle.
But they all had one thing in common. That common trait was that they did not plant seeds to begin again, or they did not know how to even begin the process.
Be Clear On Where You Are Going
Part of the process of beginning anew, or changing directions is to know where you want to go. I know this sounds simplistic and easy, but this is one of the most difficult of choices to make with clarity.
It is similar to setting out on a sailboat but not knowing where you want to end up. If you don't know where you are sailing to, you can easily end up where you don't want to be. The same applies to setting your life sails - you need to be clear where you are going.
One of the first things you need to do . . .
