We are just a few days from the start of spring, a season that transforms the landscape with fragrant enticements, interrupting our busy minds until we take stock in the bigger world. The world of budding flowers and new leaves and warmer weather that reminds us at some point we need to slow down and make time to “be.”
With all the time we spend growing and building and refining, we sometimes forget the part about enjoying. I work with several clients who struggle to find the time for just that. And I find their all-too-familiar challenge contained in a quote by Henry Van Dyke.
“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”
Spring is an ideal time to set the broom in motion. There is no better time than spring to throw out what blocks our connection to who and what we love.
