Springtime Self-Reflection

Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

 

With the change of season,  the snow has begun to melt, temperatures rise,  and  the sun shines brightly. All these things bring such delight to many after a long, cold, and dark winter.  I love when the seasons change; I feel like each time it reminds to me to sit, reflect and let go of stuff I’ve been dragging around so I can move forward into the spring months. I tend to spend a lot of time hibernating in the winter, I’d much rather stay home than go out and face the elements. Home is comfortable, safe, and warm.

When spring rolls around, I am reminded that its time to come out of my shell, move out of my comfort zone, try something new, get outside, get in touch with friends near and far.  Since we are creatures of habit, Its easy to fall  into a routine of staying within our comfort zone.

Get out there. Go for a walk, go for coffee with a friend,  meet new people, try something new, ask for a raise,  go read that book, just do whatever it is you’ve been waiting to do.  There’s no better time then now.

The Journey within

In yoga, we acknowledge that the journey begins when we allow ourselves to let things go,  in order to create space for new things, opportunities, or experiences.  Often, that sense of release occurs when being still– for me its especially after a dynamic Asana practice. When you are still you are able to take everything in, you can sit and observe your surroundings, and your internal workings. Through the stillness, the quiet, you can go deeper.  Every time you close your eyes and sit still, even if for a few moments, you allow yourself to peel away layers of yourself.

Do you ever eat Ferrero Rocher’s( If you don’t know what these are its a chocolate with hazelnut filling in the center) by biting them in half, revealing the best part, the gooey hazelnut centre? You know with every box of these chocolates there is that sweet gooey deliciousness inside, you just have to take that first bite to discover it.  That sweetness, authentic-ness, wholeness,  truth, love, or whatever word you would like to use, is within every single human being, you just have to take that first  little bite to tap into it.  Seek it out, and you shall find it.
