What are you planting this early spring?
We have a greenhouse in our backyard that begins to beckon to me around this time of the year. It is such a great metaphor for what so many of my clients and I seem to be faced with as this season of renewal approaches -the potentiality of new growth and creation.What is beckoning to you from the far reaches of your busy life to plant?
Perhaps you are contemplating a shift in career due to the uncertainty of these economic times? Perhaps you have reached a birthday that has you sit up and take notice of the life you still have yet to live, or you may be contemplating a transplant to a new, more fertile physical location?
What I know to be true for any worthwhile endeavor is that we must empty out the old to make room for the new
. The greenhouse must be cleared in order for the new seed trays to be laid out; the seed packets must be organized; and the soil mixed. The piles must be cleared in order to move, the past has to be forgiven in order to grow.We must clear out the old beliefs, outdated fears and constant chatter that live in us in order to create something new.
We must remember to lean on the wisdom and experience of the other 'gardeners' who have gone before, better equipping us to create a very unique garden (career, transition, relationship) of our own.
What feelings, beliefs, fears do you need to release before you can create what is dying to be born in you?Who do you need to forgive in order to move on with more freedom?Who might you need to disappoint in order to plant the seed that will bloom into who you were meant to be?
There is a space that is reserved just for your particular roots. It has only been waiting for you to plant the seed.
