Around me, the leaves are dropping and it is really beginning to feel like autumn. And yet, in one of my gardens filled with leaves and drooping plants, is a flower. A pink spring/summer flower that thrives in warm and full sun.
Blooming out of season. Seemingly out of sync.
The more people I talk with, the more I hear about those who feel out of sync with those around them or the world in general.
They’re moving forward while others seem to be holding back. They’re holding back while others are saying, ‘now’s the time to jump in and go for it’. They’re excited while others seem disinterested. While others are sad, they feel happy. They’re hitting roadblocks while others seem to be flowing. They are doing well while others seem to be stumbling.
First off, we never really know what others are going through. We may be reading surface indicators … and there can be a lot under the surface. But it does seem that the energy threads feel quite different for different people.
So, if this is you, and you feel out of sync, here’s a couple of important points.
You’re not broken. You’re not doing it wrong.
Probably others around you aren’t broken, and they’re not doing it wrong either.
We’re all just on very different paths.
If it is your time to bloom, to grow, to shift, to change, to expand, to move, to open … then it is your time. Ignore the ‘season’. It is as if we’re all someplace around or on a mountain. We can encounter several very different ‘seasons’ in 2-3 thousand feet of elevation change.
So, your season can be very different from someone else’s.
If your season is to bloom, you do you.
Celebrate. And let us celebrate you.
We need whatever you are bringing into the world.
