Springtime is the perfect time to plant our “seeds” — those things we wish for ourselves, whether they be mental, physical, or spiritual in nature. Just as our body is changing and transitioning, so too are our thoughts, moods, and aspirations. With proper care and the right amount of time, our “seeds” will begin to grow into healthy, strong “plants,” reaching towards the sky.
It’s something that can’t be rushed. We need to give it time. Roots need to grow. Rain needs to fall. The sun needs to shine. Time needs to pass. It’s only then, when we give our “growing plants” (i.e., our dreams, goals, and aspirations) enough time to become strong, healthy, and firmly rooted, that we can enjoy the long, warm, sunny days of summer ahead. It’s only then we can come “into full bloom” like the flowers – unique, glorious, colorful, and full of life, just like each one of us.
