Spring is Upon Us; Invest in Personal Growth
Take this opportunity to invest in personal growth and the lives of those around you.
It’s spring. It really is! The highs and lows of March are fading, and now you’re feeling it — rebirth. Everything is soon going to spring into bloom. Those cute little purple flowers that always defy the snow still left in the yard, and the dandelions that challenge every weed killer known to man.
Spring is the chance to plant seeds. Many take advantage of the cool nights and April showers to plant grass seed to fill in spotty areas. Sometimes the rain isn’t enough because grass seed needs to stay moist, and it needs to be watered every day.
Growth doesn’t exist apart from consistent care and attention. The key to growth is consistency. Watering seed once a week isn’t enough. It’s laughable, yet sometimes we do the same to ourselves. We get so busy that we forget to be intentional about personal growth. As the saying goes, “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.”
Just as no one ever plants only a single seed of grass, personal growth is linked to those around us. We sometimes see our personal growth as a vacuum and if we lack consistency it doesn’t affect others. Unfortunately, that perspective coupled with that same inconsistency does indeed produce a suffocating vacuum… like helping others with their oxygen mask while neglecting our own.
Spring is upon us. Simply grow. Take this opportunity to plant some seeds in your life. Let your heart and mind embrace this season of more light, more life, and the chance to grow. Investing in your personal growth is also an investment in others.
