Seasons on earth, in life & of the heart are all part of the cycle.
It’s a lot more fun than stagnation.

In the Southern state of North Carolina, we’ll have summer weather in the middle of the winter. Our weather patterns can go from cold 26 degrees to warm 70 degrees in a matter of days. This weekend, we got snow after days of very warm weather. Rare here in the South and usually only lasting a day, sometimes up to three.
On waking to the day, with snow on the mind, I thought of the changing of the seasons. This brought to mind that when water moves, ponds, lakes and oceans refresh. When the winds blow they bring warmth, cold, damaging winds, healing rains. When the earth turns, the seasons change. Life is about changing, growing using our past as lessons and opportunities for more beautiful tomorrows.
When we decide that change is dangerous and we get stuck in behaviors and patterns that are unhealthy, like a pond with no moving water, or a river that gets choked off, our spirits begin to die. Our hearts shut down. Our bodies generate hormones and chemicals that continue to generate the same negative thoughts and feelings that again, regenerates the same dark tumbling desire to keep the changes at bay. We become a stagnant oasis.
Stagnation stinks. As fascinating as the bacteria can be that grows and multiplies, which funnily enough changes and re-ignites life into what was once a dying place. The process of regeneration can be painful, stinky and in the end healing. Why then, go through the process of attempting to hold back change?
Why go through the stagnation process?
It only holds off the inevitable.
Will you share with us one of those moments in life that brought about growth and change in your life?
