Regroup Renew and Live
Spring has peaked through the heavy snow we've been blessed with this year and summer is just around the corner. Though I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE snow sports and winter fun, I am ready for it. Spring is a sign that life can be renewed every once in a while. Sometimes the winters are hard and spring is set back little later. But it comes, eventually...it comes. The same is true with life as sometimes our souls are set back with a diverse number of trials. 'I don't have time' has become the cliché that is all too familiar to all of us. We often feel beaten down and extremely weathered from just trying to keep up, but the show must go on, the job must get done, somebody's got to do it, and so many other nagging cliché's remind us that we must push on. There's always guilt when slowing down to take a deep breath. Why do we feel so pressured to conquer the world before it's too late. Training your intellect to understand that it's ok...no..., it's necessary not to just stop and smell the flowers as you walk by, but actually give some thought to and appreciate the process that it took to build all those petals so perfectly arranged on a different colored stem that happens to be square. How have you taken for granted this flower for your entire life and never known that it's stems are square. Suddenly, you realize, you had a few moments away from reality and that little breath of fresh air has somehow given you a pleasant feeling about life in general. It's these moments that carry us through the next path and these moments that help us decide whether we fight the daily battles with negativity or with a 'BRING IT ON' attitude. Without us even realizing it, they are a gentle nudge from within reminding you to get up and try again. They can bring to life a tired soul.
Winter blues are a real thing and even more so in parts of the world where sunlight is scarce. The first sight of budding flowers and emerging blades of grass always seem to uplift spirits. Taking every opportunity of distraction from a depressing moment is how I have learned to get through some of the hardest times in my life. I've often heard that you can't run from what you may not like, that you must stay and face it, and in the end it will make you stronger. I'm not so sure I believe that in all things. There are certainly things in life that I can not change, but must I submerge myself in them, forcing sorrow and sadness into a soul that simply wants to be happy? Not in my book. I turn to things that keep me positive and focused on the path that leads to happiness. I know that being tried and tested is what makes us stronger, but I also know from experience that having a positive outlook regardless of the circumstances, will make getting through the tough times just a little bit easier. No, running from your problems will not solve them, but stepping back, reassessing, regrouping, and going at them with a clear mind will make it so much easier to accomplish them. Trust me on that one. This is the part where I could go on about stressing over things that you can not control, and what a waste of time that is, but that's a whole other blog post.
Those who know me know that I see the positive side in all things. Sometimes it may be hard to find, but there is ALWAYS a positive side. Find it and the burdens of despair will be lessened.
Bring on Mother Natures renewed generations of life, I am ready for fields of green! Until next time, may you see the best in everything, hold onto the feelings that gives you, and let's live as though we know tomorrow brings happiness!
