Growth is a fundamental human nature. Each and everyone of us has gone through certain shifts and growths within our lives. At times, growth can come like a wise old friend and it will feel natural. Yet, on some other times, growth comes to us like a storm we cannot control. Either way, consciously and unconsciously we all go through changes and growth each and every day.
Just like nature, ever-changing cycles within our lives are ubiquitous. There are days, or even at times months where we rest, recuperate and reflect on our lives and how far we’ve come. Just like winter sheds dead leaves, in this time we shed parts of ourselves that no longer support our growth. Yet these days don’t last forever. There also comes a time where we slowly take steps of actions towards the things that we hold near and dear; our beloved dreams and hopes. Much like the flowers in the springtime, steadily opening up their petals from day to day to bloom fully.
As the cycles comes and goes, it’s only wise to surrender to the changes in course of nature, and evolve with it. Reflect when your soul needs it, yet bloom with all your might when your soul have to. After all, we’ve once heard that ‘no winter lasts forever, and no spring skips its turn’.
