Teen Counseling Something New For You In Spring

by: Sarah Houy

This past Wednesday we welcomed the first day of spring.  For the most part, many of us performed our day as usual and were not overtly aware of this slight change in the transition of our year.  Which caused me to wonder how the transitions of the seasons correlate to the transitions in our lives?

It would be terribly painful to be unaware when the harsh wind and snow of winter arrives; well for those of you in Colorado I mean.  For most of us the start of winter comes with a vengeance and the dry dark times of winter rolls in and because of the intensity screams at us to notice the change.  Not so with spring.

The gentle transition of winter to spring here in Colorado is something that is so subtle that it requires intentionality and mindfulness to notice the new growth around us.  It does not scream as the transition of winter does, but rather calmly arrives like a feather dropping to the ground.  So it is with change in our personal and emotional lives.

Many times I have noticed in my life that I am painfully aware of how harsh the winters are, when they arrive, how long they have lasted and the dryness in my spirit that occurs with this time.  However, very rarely does it happen that I notice the subtle new growth under the harsh snow that is waiting for a burst of sunshine to spring forth into a lush, vibrant sprint in my spirit.

I believe all humans are capable of the hope, help and healing they desire.  If you are struggling to find the growth in your life, the lush spring in your spirit, and are looking to make a change I invite you to call for a free initial consultation.

So what does your “spring” look like?  What does the transition to growth feel like?  How do you notice it, if at all?
