Turn of the Season Brings New Life!

I turned the corner, heading back toward my house and panted the rest of the way to the inviting slope of my driveway. I’d made it! I ran two full miles without stopping . . . a first for me. Now, all you pro runners, go ahead and resist the urge to chuckle. “I am so not a runner,” I often tell my running friends. But with the arrival of Spring, I’ve decided to try something new. Running. Every day. Well . . . at least 3-4 times a week.

The thing I love about the turn of the season to Spring is that it’s bustling with NEW LIFE. The trees are sprouting new leaves, the honeybees are out (which I am running from!), flowers are budding in lush flowerbeds, and new resolutions are being made.
The turn of the season undoubtedly brings bountiful new opportunities. I can’t help but wonder about you . . . Are you embracing this new season? Are you alive with new hope? Or are you simply surviving one day to the next? I often make new goals at the turn of the season. Partly because it keeps life interesting, and also because I love challenging myself to grow and get better. If you’re not making personal goals, I’d encourage you to . . . and do it often.
Life is all about growth. Every living thing grows. When it stops growing, it starts dying.
So whether it’s exercising, reading a new book a month, cutting back on sugar, calling that friend you had a disagreement with years before, going back to school or fill in the blank, I encourage you to focus on growing each and every day.
Life is too good to be stagnant! Be alive! In this new season, I pray you find new hope, new life and embrace every moment of your journey.
What about you? What new goals are you making at this turn of the season?
