Repotting Yourself

August 1, 2011

Life has a way of regenerating itself. Just when you think that one of your plants is dying, you can take a small cutting of one of its leaves and place it into some new soil. It will almost instantaneously take root and voila – new growth and life appears yet again.

Why does this happen? Again, life has a way of regenerating itself. Whatever dies to the old, will certainly renew again. There are many parts of our lives that have outlived their usefulness and in time we let them go so new opportunities and experiences can replace them. Life happens in the letting go phase. You have to die to the old and be OK with that. Don’t try and preserve the years, they need to evolve and dutifully finish. With each letting go (death) of a job, a relationship, or a home, a part of YOU gets re-potted and will begin to grow again in a different and fresher configuration. Life never regenerates itself exactly the same way. New buds signal new change and a new zest for life.

Look at yourself as a beautiful plant, when the time has come to let go and let yourself die to the old – take a part of yourself and re-pot it… allow new growth to rejuvenate you and give rise to a new beautiful flower.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
