Spring is always a symbol of rebirth and to start anew. This is the time of the year that nature shows us that anything is possible. That tree or plant which looked dead and you thought it would never come back after a cold winter, starts sprouting new growth. New branches sprout which start a new path that buds new blossoms and leaves. And just like the tree or plant, you can start new paths in your life that were not there before.
I love the following quote –
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” – Audrey Hepburn
And yes you are! We all are! We can achieve anything we want. We just have to think it is possible. Many items we take for granted today was at one time just a dream, like your cellphone, computer or car. Someone thought “what if” and in time, that thought turned into a reality. You just need to believe that you can achieve that thought or dream. Have faith!
“Whether you believe you can do a think or not, you are right.” – Henry Ford
Take a look at your thoughts and examine them to see if they are helping you grow or holding you back. Sometimes we have to let go of old thoughts, habits and patterns to grow and that is not easy. If you have been thinking one way for a long time, it may be hard to change that thought or pattern, but you can do it.
When you think of an old thought, like “I am not worthy” or “this won’t work” immediately think “Yes, I am worthy” or “this will work”. At first you may not believe it, but in time and with practice you will change the negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones. Have patience and faith and the thoughts will change. Once you change those thoughts, new paths and opportunities will open up for you!
But to change we have to put some work and effort into changing our thoughts and habits. Just as my friend is working on in rehab. You have to change your way of thinking to change your life. Another friend of mine who is fighting cancer believes that winning the fight against cancer is a possibility. I think that you have to believe you can achieve it to conquer whatever obstacles in your life you are facing. And cancer is definitely one of the hardest obstacles to fight.
“Start by doing what is necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – Francis of Assisi
And once you start, the possibilities are endless. You will probably end up somewhere that you did not think was possible. But you dared to dream a new life and the universe gave you more than you could have imagined. Be open to the change. Have faith and let go.
“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” -Joseph Campbell
Be open to the possibilities! They are yours for the asking!
