Spring is Here! Renew and Refresh!

Spring adds new life and new beauty to all that is.”Jessica Harrelson
What are you looking forward to this Spring? What is your energy taking you? What is beckoning or begging for your attention?

Springtime is nature’s season for giving us that subtle push to refresh and renew…
Spring has been the harbinger of growth and change. It has been worshipped as sacred, by countless cultures and religions, both ancient and modern. It is worth pausing to reflect on this time of renewal while it is happening around you. Let spring fill you up with hope, for spring is an energy which never looks back or allows regrets. Spring is the looking forward, the building up, and it is filled with optimism and promise. (Shared by a colleague; author unknown)

I love the fresh smells and colors of Spring… the first crocuses and daffodils, the birds chirping outside my window, the buds on the trees, and the grass starting to grow green. I have the desire to declutter and clean up the house and yard, to let go of the old and bring in the new. I want to cleanse my palate with Spring foods like asparagus, arugula, fiddleheads, and rhubarb.

What lights you up in the Spring? What sounds and smells are calling you? Where does your energy want you to go and grow? Pay attention to the subtle signs and follow them. Let yourself explore…and enjoy the ride.

Spring is a great time to make a Vision Board to capture your ideas and goals for any change you want to make. I’ll be running a Vision Board Workshop on May 10 from Noon-2pm! See listing under Classes and Events. I hope you’ll join me!

What Matters Most to You?

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” ~Mary Oliver

It’s easy to be complacent; it’s comfortable.  But here’s the deal: we have limited time to create the life we really want. So ask yourself: How did you get here? Does what you’re doing now align with your true purpose and who you say you are? Do you feel like there’s more you’d like to do to live more fully? What do want to do next?

It’s time to act…it’s time to celebrate your true nature- who you are and what really matters to you most. Be a “wayfinder” and chart a new course for yourself.

Are there areas that feel out of sync with what matters to you? What can do do to experience more joy and alignment with your true self?  Start where you are today by taking small daily steps to help you move towards your goals and try using these four tools:

  • Reflection– Practice self-awareness; take time to think about what you really want
  • Exploration– Explore new possibilities; step outside your comfort zone
  • Choice– Choose something you want that will bring you joy
  • Action– Take a step towards your goal or dream

As you move forward, be prepared to overcome obstacles like fear, worries, emotions, inertia, or analysis paralysis…any or all of these could try to keep you in your comfort zone. Identify your support system- who will be your cheerleader?

Sometimes we lose sight of our vision and we feel like giving up if the going gets tough.  As a coach, that’s where I can help. My passion is to help my clients clarify their vision and hold on to it as it evolves, even if they lose sight of it or themselves along the path…

If you’d like some guidance, I invite you to join my Inspired Action Coaching Group or take my Vision Board Workshop or both! Details for both can be found on my website.

There are so many possibilities to imagine…what are you planning to do with your one wild and precious life? I can’t wait to hear…

Wishing you much joy and success!
