It’s almost Easter. This is the time of year when we begin to think about rebirth and transformation. The earth is waking up from its long winter nap and we are emerging from our own hibernation. This year spring has been difficult for most of us. We aren’t able to go out and enjoy the nice weather as much as we’d like. We’re in a state of uncertainty and confusion and we’re not sure when normal life is going to resume. That doesn’t mean we can’t all take a deep breath, step out into the light of our own backyard and grow a garden within ourselves.
We think of transformation as something that can make us better. Buds transform into flowers and leaves. Caterpillars transform into butterflies. Seeds transform into plants that produce fruits and vegetables…and it all happens in spring. But transformation can also be scary. Rebirthing ourselves into something different takes us into the unknown where many of us aren’t comfortable. In the same way a caterpillar breaks out of a cocoon and emerges as a butterfly, we have to break old habits and behaviors that we are familiar with and try something new.
Spring is a symbolic time, so what better time to begin to change ourselves into the self we always dreamed we could be? That’s what Easter is about too, isn’t it? Coming back to life. Celebration. Joy. Just as we plant the seeds in our gardens, we can plant seeds within ourselves that we can nurture throughout the rest of this year.
You don’t have to completely overhaul your entire life. However, starting with a few small changes can reap huge benefits down the road. As we stay home with our families and watch the green sprout around our homes, it’s natural for us to take a moment and evaluate the lessons we learned through winter and where we want to go as spring blossoms.
Once you’ve answered these questions honestly and thoroughly, you’ll have a better understanding of what it is you want to change and clean up in your life and where you need to go from here. Pick one small thing that needs transformation and run with it. You can use this time away from the bustle of your normal life to see just how far you can go.
Once you’ve decided the what…now decide the how. I don’t know what your “thing” is, but here are a few simple steps that can help with any aspect of transformation you’re taking on.
Beginning transformation forces us to slow down a bit. Right now, we have a unique opportunity to press the reset button and wake up to a new world. Never believe change is impossible. If you’re not where you want to be in life, now is the perfect opportunity to take stock of that. Stop being afraid of the transformation that is waiting for you. Easter is a celebration of rebirth and joy–a symbol of new life. Take this time of social isolation to focus on what you can plant in your garden to create the change you want to see in your life.
