The best part about Spring is watching nature come alive again. The flowers awaken in colorful blossoms, the trees sprout leaves and breathe, the grass radiates a scent of so-fresh-and-so-clean. People come alive too. Bikes populate the streets, people stroll the streets smiling, and friends convene in parks to tell stories, play music, and spread love. It’s a beautiful time.
But just a few weeks before this period of glowing life, landscapes are flowerless and trees are leafless. The grass is brown and the wind is chilly. People, too, are reclusive from the bleak outdoors.
Like nature, life is a series of natural changes. The ups and downs, the highs and lows, they’re part of the natural rhythm of life. This is what we all have in common. Without winter, there is no spring. Without rock bottom, there is no ultimate high. Without negative, there is no positive. These ebbs and flows are the key to ever-flowing progress.
Just as the austerity of winter cannot force the life of spring, we cannot force our own evolution. Low points are healthy and natural stepping stones toward our greatest potential. Loss is inevitable in the process of realizing what’s worth having. Pain is a natural part of experiencing deep love.
When you find yourself in a moment of questioning, of anxiety, of wanting to control, remember that this too shall pass. Accept, surrender, and be a witness to what is. The low is needed in order for the high to naturally emerge. Soon enough, the winds will blow their own freshness into you. Your season will change too.
