It’s so amazing to see another season of renewal and rebirth – each spring season invites us to come out of our winter hibernation. And with longer days ahead, we’ll be dancing daily underneath the glowing bright solar star. Yes, we’ll have yet another chance to see flowers bursting with vivid colors, trees making their grand entrance to showcase their summer shade, and chirping birds criss-crossing through our yards. As a child, I couldn’t wait to go outside and play all-day – only with quick intermissions to hustle back indoors for a hydratable drink.
We have a unique situation this year as we mark the anniversary of the first detected COVID19 case here in the United States. So many people were affected and so many people departed because of the lethal virus. For the rest of us we feared and hoped for the better. Though not fully out of the woods of this pandemic, we “March” forward. Our life goals may have shifted a bit, but the basic goal I believe we agree upon is to wake up again and continue with our lives.
The year 2020 has definitely given us so much to think about. Here are some reflective questions I’m sure you asked yourself:
- Am I happy with my current professional career?
- Am I doing enough to spend quality time with my immediate family/children?
- Am I missing out on friendships and sharing time with them?
- Am I ignoring the “real” thing I was design to do in life?
- Am I honest with myself – hiding who I truly want to be?
- Am I willing to forgive myself and others?
- Am I taking good care of myself (my physical body)?
These questions for you may be in different stage levels to break-through your
current situation. This deep reflective stance could be the possible way to better yourself. And it may beneficial not only for you, but also for those around you as well. Tim Duncan quoted “Good, better, best. Never let is Rest. Until you good is better and your better is best.”
Have I created a personal ‘vision’ board before for myself? Yes – and I may need to review it again and make modest changes to it. Have I though about where I’d like to be in one year from now? Yes – and I may need to review that again and make modest changes to it.
So strive to make inroads to blossom differently this year. And as we welcome the official day of “Spring,” be ready to make that grand entrance to the outside world.
Let’s go people and do some good!
