Seasons Change

How do you know you’re getting ready for change?  You start to feel an increased sense of dissatisfaction with your performance, with your environment, and with your interactions with others.  You are looking for something, but aren’t sure just what it is. You feel irritable, but can’t place your finger on why. It’s change. And it’s a good thing – really!

In life, seasons change in the same way.  There are times of growth and vibrance, times that wane into quiet yearning, and times that burst into abundance. This is the process of health change. But we sabotage this process with fear, apathy, isolation, and other negative, self-limiting beliefs.  Trying to avoid this transitory process of change by living in the shadows and ignoring the tug at your heart is the
surest way to kill your joy and stall your growth.

A small rose bush grows at the edge of the yard, budding in spite of neglect.  It was planted in a shady spot instead of a place where the warmth of the sun can feed it nutrients. It wasn’t pruned so dying limbs and rangy branches suck the life that could be feeding the buds waiting to bloom. The dozen tiny rosebuds and tender leaves will probably be chewed up by insects if it is not treated for aphids and beetles.  It is a pretty little bush – but what could it be if it were tended correctly?
