Spring represents, renewal, growth and possibilities and is beautifully captured in this poem:
“Spring is a miraculous experience.
The whole world comes alive after the winter in which it seemed that everything was dead.
The world comes filled with colour and the scent of delicious greenery.
The world that seemed so dull and cold has come alive once again.
Little did we know that beneath the cold hard ground the plants and trees were preparing for rebirth. Spring gives us hope for rejuvenation in our own lives as well.
Spring is a time to renew the excitement and zest for life that lives inside.”
This first eight months of 2020, impacted many of our plans and lives. 2020 was marked as the year for growth and clarity. Instead, 2020 tested more than foresight and vision, it tested every aspect of our being.
Some rode the wave of uncertainty and confusion, by embracing the opportunities the crisis presented. During this phase, the people who took control over their survival and sanity were better positioned to exploit the growth opportunities. By committing and adapting to the new, people thrived.
This Spring, the EOHO team commits to taking you on a journey of rediscovery. The goal of this exercise is to build on your resilience and growth mindset. Resilience and a growth mindset are critical traits in building a strong inner foundation to enable navigation through challenges. As a start we humbly request that this first week of Spring you do the following:
Find a tool, technique that helps revive your soul, body, and mind; and enjoy this daily.
Seek out the individuals, communities and platforms that resonate with you in the form that elevates your state of well-being and reach out and connect.
The past eight months confused many of us. Commit to getting to know you, in this process list the two challenges that you need to focus on navigating through.
Ask questions that enable the collection of enough information. Use this data to :
understand these challenges
explore the possible solutions
map out the plan of action
execute your plan
Each of us needs to find the green shoots within and around us, nurture the growth, and enjoy the fruits:
“If we had no winter the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” - Anne Bradstreet
