How Often Does Your Spring Come?

The spring wakes us, nurtures us, and revitalizes us. How often does your spring come? If you are a prisoner of the calendar, it comes once a year. If you are creating authentic power, it comes frequently, or very frequently.

~Gary Zukav

Eternal spring is not an easy concept to create. In order to succeed we need constant renewal. Yet, recreating ourselves requires energy. What happens when we run out?

I am always fascinated by people who seem to have a limitless amount of energy. Some literally need very little sleep or even food to run through the day. Transition and transformation, and change management are all part of the furniture. Yet, it is often very difficult to see when someone else cannot keep up or needs another type of authentic path

Spring can only occur after winter. A season of introspection and self-reflection. For new skills or abilities to grow we need a moment to let other things go. If we never stop, we never learn to listen. And if we don’t listen, we never learn what truly matters in self-transformation.

When we understand the vast possibilities of authentic paths, we also begin to see others in a new light.

Perhaps it’s ok to be silent every now and then and let others take their course. Perhaps it’s ok to let that winter arrive and push it aside when the right opportunity arrives.

There are more ways than one to celebrate spring. Gratitude, care, and appreciation go a long way. Self-transformation happens with people around us. Renewal eventually creates more energy when the time is right.

Here are a few steps that have helped me to keep a spring spirit:

  • Finding my passion and keeping it up in any small way I can. If I cannot write a book, I take pictures and write short poems.
  • Going outside. That may not always be possible, but when it is, I try to ensure that I walk as often as I can.
  • Observing the little beauties in life. Sometimes they are single details of a beautiful doorway, the way an old lamppost casts the light or the moon above a tree line.
  • Remembering someone. Sending pictures or thoughts to someone I care about. Occasionally, I even manage to send a postcard.
  • Sticking to priorities. I wake up each morning with a few goals in my head for me and for my work. Just a few – not a long list. That way I make sure that what really needs to get done, happens.
  • At the end of the day, I always thank for the accomplishments of the day. And before starting a new day I thank that what I expect to do, happens.

Eternal spring goes in cycles. We do feel tired and need to take breaks. What matters is that we try whenever we can to find what inspires us. And most often, I find that sharing and caring bring the best results for me.
