Springtime is a season of joy and renewal, as the world awakens from its winter slumber and bursts forth with new life and energy. I don’t know about you but I have tons of buds in my yard that are ready to burst!

And this season provides us with a unique opportunity to reflect on our lives and consider what we want to bring into it. It’s also just as important to consider what may be best to let go of, before the year slips away from us.

The beauty of spring reminds me of the many blessings that surround me, and it encourages me to focus on the positive aspects of my life.

What about you?

Do you take time to pause – to see the growth of the seeds you planted earlier this year – in your yard, in your relationships, in your career, and in your own self-growth?

We can take time to appreciate the beauty of nature, spend time with those we love, and pursue our passions and interests.

Springtime provides a sense of hope and optimism, reminding us that anything is possible if we believe in ourselves and work towards what is most important in our life.

As we contemplate what we want to bring into our lives and what we want to let go of, we can take inspiration from the natural world around us. Just as the trees shed their leaves in preparation for new growth, we too can let go of things that no longer serve us, such as negative thoughts or habits.

And just as the flowers bloom and the birds sing with joy, we too can bring new energy and enthusiasm to our lives by pursuing our dreams and embracing new opportunities.

Slow down, breathe, allow for quiet time and time with your loved ones. We are all gardeners of our lives, nurturing, cultivating, and choosing to let go of what no longer serves us in order to allow our true authentic self, our essence, the true core of our being to be revealed.

It’s time to weed those things out of our life that drain the nutrients and energy from us. Keep tending the seeds you’ve planted this year, and be diligent to stay centered and grounded amid the chaos.

We have a little ‘Zen bunny’ statue in our garden, which is an intentional reminder to slow down, pause, and remember to enjoy the environment surrounding me. Each time I look at it, it encourages me to slow down and continue to make positive changes before the year slips away from me.

I invite you to embrace this season of renewal and growth with an open heart, open mind, and let it inspire you to become your best self.
