As we prepare for sub zero temperatures this weekend, I am looking out at the frozen landscape and then staring at my computer screen. Sound familiar? Stuck between a rock and a hard place we have entered the #WinterFatigue and #VirtualFatigue season. Too far away from Spring to really be excited (but at least the beautiful snow helps!) and inching towards one year of our pandemic situations that though we should be used to, we are still struggling with isolation and meeting fatigue. So how do we break the ice or stop the endless #GroundhogDay cycle? Breathe in and Breathe out and remember....
In every time a season...
We are all part of nature, trees in a great forest
Everyone is unique and different, growing at their own rate and in their own way
As trees we plant our roots in the soil of our parents
We take in sunshine and rain and grow from above
Sometimes we have to weather storms around us
And accept help to clean us up and trim us up
Deal with broken branches and scars and know they will heal
Accept pruning graciously, accepting the fear to encourage new growth
Making the hard choices of cutting out girdling roots in order to survive
Breathing deep through the seasons
Shedding leaves and the excess each season
And sharing the joy with those around you
Growing new leaves and spreading flowers of hope
Providing shelter for the understory and seedlings
Sinking your roots deep to grow beyond the surface in search of something more
Aging with grace and excepting the passage of time to each season
Saying goodbye and accepting returning to the earth
And hoping you help something new grow again. Copywrite 2021 AArnold
So Dream of Spring and the Adventures now and ahead and take in each moment of each day!
