The first time someone told me what I was going through was “just a season,” I got quite annoyed! How could what I was feeling be just a season?
The more I sat with my cancer diagnosis (and some of the other struggles I’ve faced), I came to realise that they were right – that particular season had been “just a season or a series of seasons.”
What if we approached life from a perspective of understanding that each season would teach us lessons on strength, endurance, growth, faith, and trust? Would we conduct ourselves differently?
No matter what adversity life serves you, I’m here to tell you that it is just a season. The question is, how do we navigate those seasons?
First we need a road map. We need to understand what is happening during each of our internal emotional seasons: autumn, winter, spring, and summer. Thankfully, we have nature’s beautiful examples to help us see our internal seasons.
Once we have clarity of these seasons, we are then better equipped to handle whatever life throws our way.
It is easy to relate to our internal state of ‘spring’ when it is mirrored to us in our current external weather pattern.
Spring is that time of year that brings new growth, new ideas, new possibilities. As the temperature warms up and there is more daylight, there is a stirring of new life and an enthusiasm for what lies ahead.
Spring wakes us from our deep slumber and activates us to re-emerge with fresh newness.
For me, I am feeling very much in the internal season of spring. I have completed all of my cancer treatment (big fat tick on that journey!) and I am now forging ahead into my new normal.
As I question who I was and consider who I am becoming, there is an excitement rising within me. I feel strong, heck… I feel bullet proof. I have so much I want to do and so much energy to get on doing it. How about you? What season do you feel you’re in?
How can I get the most out of spring (without burning out) I hear you ask? 🙌
