The beautiful thing about the arrival of the spring season is that it always makes us wait; we must have patience for the cold, grey weather to dissipate and make way for brighter, warmer, and longer days. Now that spring is finally upon us, it’s time to express gratitude for a long-awaited shift into warmth and change.
Spring is the perfect time to reflect on your own growth and renewal. Take a hint from nature and sprout a new routine that leads to a happier and more fulfilled life. Today we cover why this spring is a wonderful time for you to grow.
What Does Personal Growth Mean to You?
Personal growth looks so different from one person to the next – and that is a beautiful thing. When setting your goals to grow this spring, take a moment to think about what it is that you want to strive towards, and why.
Whether you want to work on your sense of time management, center your days more closely around gratitude, or add more greens to your daily menu, it all counts towards building a happier and healthier version of yourself.
Witness Growth Around You
In the spring, we have the beautiful opportunity to witness growth as it unfolds around us. Nothing serves as a better reminder to slow down and smell the flowers than actual flowers in bloom; take a moment to slow down and focus on how much you truly have to be grateful for.
There is a mighty sense of tranquility in the perseverance of spring’s arrival after winter. If you are feeling a sense of hopelessness, try spending some time in nature. You will find inspiration in how nature always fulfills the promise of new life and the willingness to take up space where it is needed.
Slow & Steady Changes
When it comes to making lifestyle changes, remember to be kind to yourself and not completely uproot normalcy as you know it. You need to keep in mind that adding too much to your agenda is counter-intuitive; personal growth should be a process that you allow to take up time. It will not always be an easy process, but it will absolutely be worth it in the long run.
This season, try adding two or three goals for your journey in personal growth. You want your changes to have room to breathe and be sustainable – all of this is to obtain a lifestyle that makes you happier, so don’t stress out about it!
Start Your Journey
Take some time this week to decide where you want to grow, and set your intentions. Create space for the new growth to take place; it’s just like preparing your garden for new plants. Growth needs to be nurtured, so give yourself the grace to do so.
Start a garden or garden kit. Get out in your garden, connect with your roots, and remember what it is that exhilarates you in this life. Think of all of the ways you can accomplish your goals, and decide how you are going to grow this year.
