Yes, I know it has been awhile, a long while, since I blogged. So, let's see how this goes....sharing monthly Tidbits from my newsletter which you can find on my Facebook page at Daily Harmony Studio.
March Tidbit: Seasonal Changes
This month I am continuing with some thoughts from January. Now though, it's more about finding balance during changing times...and learning to sense and to navigate my place. Without going on about the details, it is a familar story for those who are in, or have been in, the sandwhich generation, or anyone really. Change/growth happens all the time and all around us. It's inevitable, and as it should be.
Just like seasons change, our seasons of life change/evolve. Sometimes we just can't wait for the current season to be over and the next season to come, and sometimes we dread what we think is coming. Think about it, when it's snowy and freezing and we have had enough, we can't wait for warmer days. That is until we have had enough of 100 degree days and we long for colder weather. Or, in our youth we long for the freedom of choices that come with being older, then when we get there, we wish we had the freedoms of our youth. Funny how that goes.
So, what's the Tidbit? For me, Go With The Flow. Easier said than done, I know. But, there are some things in life that are simply beyond our control, and in fact, are a normal part of life's everchanging seasons. Rather than fight the current, we might as well be present for the ride. And maybe, just maybe, we will find the beauties that we might otherwise miss while struggling and closing our eyes to the currents of the unknown. It's ok to rant against the never ending snow that has to be shoveled, and reshoveled, but don't close your eyes to the beauty of a fresh snowfall, the silent hush in the night under gently falling snow or the thrill of sledding down a great hill! It's ok to curse the sweltering heat and humidity of 100 degrees, but don't close your eyes to the lushness it brings or to the deep appreciation of an ice cold drink on a hot summer's day. It's ok to mourn loss that may come with life changes, but don't close your eyes to what is happening right now, in this moment, or to what may come next. You just might miss the beauty and joy in your present life, or the promise of what the new season may bring. So, take a deep breath, let go-and go with the flow.
