We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.
In many parts of the world, Christians are celebrating Easter. Originally this was a pagan celebration, and the Christian resurrection is symbolic for renewal and rebirth. (Interested in the origins of Easter? Read more here)
During winter, Mother Nature sheds her old skin, and in spring new life emerges everywhere. Trees are budding and tender, green leaves make their way out. Little flowers spread colourful dots of yellow, purple and white in parks and gardens, and on warm and sunny days you may even spot the first butterflies.
Let the budding/regrowth of life inspire you! Review and refresh your habits, and become a renewed You. As Laozi said: “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be”.
