It’s Growing Season For All

Apr 15, 2021

The grass is turning a vibrant green. Trees are budding their unique leaves. New flowers are popping up from seemingly nowhere. Spring is growing season for the plants around us, but it is also a time of growth for us as humans too. Spring is an opportunity to try new things and push yourself outside of your comfort zone.

After spending a long snowy winter indoors, what have you been dying to try? Maybe you’ve been wanting to push your boundaries and play a new sport? Have you been itching to make new friends in your neighborhood? Or maybe you have been wanting to re-frame the way your brain is thinking? Whatever change you are craving, there is plenty of opportunity for growth this season.

Just as the scenery around us changes before our eyes, you have the ability to as well. Nourish your growing season with all the water, nutrients, and sunlight you can get. You’ll be surprised at how much you can achieve when you make sure you have the basics covered.

Keep in mind, when we are growing, it isn’t always pretty. We don’t instantly become beautiful flowers and statuesque trees overnight. There are many moments of setbacks, akwardness, and potentially failure. But don’t let those moments keep you from growing. If we don’t grow, we will never experience what we are truly capable of. So how are you growing this season? Write it down, say it outloud, tell a friend and let the journey begin.
