Easter is one of the most special public holidays of the year. Of course, there is a special significance for Christians but there is also something for everyone to consider.
As the mornings and evenings grow lighter and the last of the winter frosts disappear, there is a great feeling of a new beginning. Many trees are in blossom and others have green buds. The grass is starting to grow faster than even the most avid gardener can mow it.
This is a great time of the year to look back at those ‘New Year resolutions’, to review progress and to take any corrective action needed.
Unconsciously most have a real awareness of the way that the seasons can affect our feelings and attitudes. The chances are that you made those ‘January resolutions’ in the midst of a cold, grey and wet winter. That probably made your emotions and optimism pretty cold, grey and wet too. However, when the natural world is bursting with the promise of a glorious spring and the warmth of summer, this is an ideal time to decide that you too will rekindle and put right anything that you feel needs correction in your own life.
Unless humans interfere with nature, it has its own graceful balance. The old and used make way for the new and vibrant. Anyone can do the same with their own thoughts, attitudes and behaviours. Perhaps those fondly held beliefs that served you well in the past are due for an overhaul. Perhaps it is time to restore your own natural balance.
That balance means harmony rather than discord. He suggests that this should include a brief but thorough examination of all the areas of your life – relationships, career, health, finances, leisure and talents.
A series of coaching sessions can help restore the balance. Have you got a coach ?
You would have to be a very cold individual indeed to totally ignore the promise of Spring. So take some of that promise for yourself and then make sure that it is a promise that is delivered. You deserve nothing less.
