In the area of the world I live, now is the time for planting bulbs that will emerge and bloom in the spring.
Energetically, we’re in the same sort of season.
What are you planting, fertilizing, and nurturing in your life for the spring?
Perhaps your brain just froze thinking about that. There’s the holidays and work and school and events and … and … and …
In our rapid paced lives, where EVERYTHING is happening ALL THE TIME, it is a radical act to take time to think and plan ahead. But, just like we need to plant spring bulbs now so they can overwinter in the soil, we need to plant some of our future into the soil of our soul now.
And it doesn’t have to be complicated.
I bought a 2023 calendar (that inspires and makes me smile) where I’m going to track some things and see what I learn about myself.
Someone I know got one of those exercise goal images for next year where you color in a small piece for distance/time biking, running, hiking, or walking.
Someone else I know is planning a spring vacation.
Someone else is signing up for class they’ve been wanting to take.
Someone else is creating a small ritual to start their morning differently.
What do you want in your life next spring? What is asking to be planted, fertilized, and nurtured now to prepare for that?
And yeah, I’m putting in some more actual bulbs because, hey, spring flowers are awesome!
