What if …anything were possible….who would you be…what would you be doing?
For those living in the northern hemisphere, summer holidays are nearly over, children are returning to school, soon autumn leaves will be falling and, Christmas lights will be glowing in 14 weeks’ time…or so Facebook tells me!
Here in the southern hemisphere, its officially spring! Over a period time, I’ve been watching a gardener at the Botanical gardens break up fallow ground, clear away stones, thorns and weeds, and, during the past week, I’ve watched him turn the soil, the richness of the earth filling my lungs, then plant new seeds in neat furrows. I’ve felt a sense of anticipation – something new, new energy, new growth! Exciting!
If you’re making a new start in life, have you taken time to clear away any bricks, thorns or weeds that have hardened your heart? Any judgements or unresolved feelings that keep you in the past or stop you from forgiving? This work needs to be done, it may be hard, a bit muddy, messy – you can take a shower afterwards!
Looking ahead, what seeds do you want to plant… where are you going… how do you want to live?
Often when we’re making a new start, we may not be clear on what we want. Are you willing to follow the diamond within your heart and see where it takes you? To pay attention to what you feel drawn to, take a little step, then another?
I love to spend a little time each morning imagining… what if…. what if anything were possible…what sort of world do I want to live in, what do I want to create, how can I make a difference…. Often I then find my heart feels full and I have a spring in my step! Perhaps you might like to try it? Then, if you make a habit of doing something each day that brings you joy, it may be surprising what you find.
