Oops! I see I started four minutes too early, didn’t mean to send that yet! So I’ll wait to start at the correct time! If anybody’s here yet, say hi or what’s on your mind and we can have a little chat while waiting!

Today I thought I’d talk about the change of seasons, and how there are similarities between that and what goes on in our life - changes that occur physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! Sound good?

Then I thought we could plant the seed for a goal, something we want to create this coming season!

I know for myself, it’s been a challenging six weeks, as I adjusted to having to wear hearing aids, and accepting that I can’t hike without using walking sticks.

I found both of these challenging to accept. I was having a real struggle with it in my mind, and wanting to accept and move forward

My girlfriend invited me up to visit her for a week, so I hopped on a plane and went up. That’s why I wasn’t on the call on Friday, as I was flying home.

I live in beautiful Victoria BC, where it is green year round. I flew to Kelowna where they experience all four seasons, and everything was quite dead looking! I left a place filled with blossoms and arrived in a place where it snowed on Saturday morning!

When I arrived in Kelowna, it indeed looked like winter. But, by Sunday, the sun was out, and I could see things greening. It was quite beautiful!!! And within a couple days, it was warm enough to sit outside in shorts and suntan!

And it made me think of how change is like the seasons. How we can feel the darkness of winter, Where everything looks dry up and dead, and then as if by magic, new growth new life, new beauty!

I believe that is what many of us try to do when we’re not feeling happy about our life. We try to make spring hurry up, and yet it comes in its own sweet time!

Rather than resist, when we accept then things move forward!

So, with my example, I was struggling because I wanted to accept the hearing aids and walking sticks and didn’t want to feel the “negative “emotions.

Yet, I needed to give myself time to grieve the passing of what Was my previous experience of health for the present experience.

It’s about letting go of the struggle, being present with what is.

And taking action to make the change more palatable!

So, for instance, in my example it was hopping on a plane during Covid to go visit a girlfriend, and enjoy a different part of the country!

For many of us, it’s spring cleaning! Getting rid of all the old, the dirt, dust that collected over the winter. Cleaning up the garden and planting seeds!

If you are still in the dark days of winter, what can you do to change it up?

For me, just making the decision to get out of town helped me except my hearing aids and walking sticks, and really feel appreciative that I have them in my life!
