The Perfect Season for Reflection

new-years

if in every breath
you strip naked
just like a winter
the joy of spring
will grow from within

–Rumi

Have you still not gotten around to making your New Year’s resolutions? This may be a sign that you simply need some time to reflect. No need for guilt. No need to rush. This is an ideal time for you to regroup and evaluate your life.

Timing is everything.

Most people feel pressure to set their goals for an upcoming new year at the end of a current year. This may be customary, but is it really the best time to make important life decisions? The end of the year is usually hectic and stressful. You’re tying up loose ends in your business and personal life. You’re juggling family obligations, holiday parties, and holiday shopping while trying to figure out how to get everything done in a short amount of time.

How can you be expected to take a clear and mindful approach to setting goals and making resolutions when you barely have a peaceful moment?

You need some peace and quiet. You want time to focus and look inward before you can make important decisions about your future.

Now is the ideal time to do just that.

Winter is the perfect season to reflect and regroup. Why not take this time to reflect on the past year? Take this moment to let things sink in. Use this time to meditate and connect with your partner and loved ones. Enjoy the peacefulness of living in the present.

Winter is the perfect time to plant seeds. Plan attainable goals along with realistic action-steps that you can take to ensure you actually accomplish them. By the time Spring arrives, you’ll be well on your way to making good on your well thought out plans. After all, isn’t Spring the season for rebirth and new growth?

The moment for preparation for renewal is here.
Allow yourself the time you need to create the life you love.
