Learning lessons from the spring

Spring is definitely here. Today when I am writing this, the sun is shining joyful, despite the cold wind that makes your muscles shake. A glorious blue sky meets your eyes as you look up and trees are timidly blossoming. You wouldn’t even think that in the last three days it had kept raining.

The weather is unsettled. There are days when the sky is bright, making you feel hopeful and joyful (like today), and other times when the sky is like an endless grey milky matter, making you feel heavy and slow.

The arrival of spring is like any transition: sometimes straightforward, sometimes with detours, with days when everything seems on track and with days when it feels like we stagnate.

It takes time to bloom. And what is important to remember is that most of the change and effort put into blooming are usually unnoticed. The work happens most of the times underground, at the root level, in the trunks of the trees, with few visible external changes.

So if you feel that you don’t move faster, if you beat yourself that you are not yet where you wanted to be, take the example of the spring. Some days are cold, grey and rainy and others are bright with a hopeful sun.

Take a break and rest if you need, and then make a new step. Restore your energy to move forward. And remember, if sometimes change is about sprinting, most of the times change is about taking one step at the time.
