It’s an in-between time of year right now where I live. It’s still Winter, but it’s warming up, yet it’s not Spring either. The warm and cold results in a lot of slush and mush and mud. It’s the mud part that my 6-year-old son loves. Squishing and squashing for him, another load of laundry for me.
I love to get out in nature and take note of the small changes that are happening. Because sometimes what’s happening on the earth is a lesson for what’s happening in our life.
What’s happening outside us is a mirror for what’s happening within us.
On my walk, I realized there’s something very interesting about this time of year as it relates to you and me and anyone who wants to fulfill a vision and follow their passion in life.
There’s the energy of Spring where we want to create and start new. We want to get going with our ideas, plans, and projects. Yet the Winter is still here, wanting us to lay dormant a little longer. To stay still and warm.
What results between these two energies of Spring and Winter is literally mud. Both on the ground and in our minds. A stuck in the mud kind of feeling – wanting to go one way, but being pulled another.
Does following your passion for wellness and coaching ever seem like this to you?
- You want to take the leap, but staying put feels safe.
- You want to follow your passion, but the fears weigh you down from taking action.
- Or you want to break free from your old job, but the new path is the unknown.
- Or you want to help more people, but you have doubts about how to do it.
Here’s the thing about this mud…Brewing under all the mud right now in the ground are the seeds – the growth that’s coming. If we listen for it, it’s underneath our own surface, too.
What’s brewing deep inside you that wants to push through the surface? In all of us, there’s a longing, a desire that’s deep down and wants to push through the muddy ground and start growing.
The question is whether or not we will let it out.
Our culture teaches us to ignore those inner feelings and desires, to just “keep on keeping on”. To numb ourselves with screens, food, drugs and alcohol and other vices. The problem is, when we numb ourselves, we also numb the inner voice and it can’t be heard and we miss something big about ourselves.
Because within that inner voice, the one that’s pushing us onward toward our dreams, all of the potential, all of the possibilities, all of the growth that’s waiting to sprout. Just like those spring seedlings, you are a flower waiting to bloom.
So my question to you is this:
Will you ignore the stuff in the mud or will you give it a voice?
Giving it a voice is the first step, then all you have to do is keep taking the next step in front of you. Even if it’s muddy right now, it will soon be stable ground with grass, flowers, and plants sprouting everywhere. We can’t always see how it’s going to work out when it’s muddy, but the mud will pass.
