May is one of my favorite months of the year.
It’s typically not as volatile, weather-wise as April and the temperatures are still mild. As we make the transition from spring to summer, my thoughts often turn to new beginnings. It’s the beginning of a new growing season for gardeners. It’s the beginning of long, lazy summer days. For college graduates, it’s the beginning of new careers and stepping onto the path of the unknown future. This is always an exciting time.
Focus on new beginnings
I am thinking about new beginnings more than ever this year since my home was flooded and I had to move out, lock, stock and barrel! I’ve been living in transition for the past 3 months and I am doing my best to keep my thoughts on the excitement of moving back into a fresh and dry home. It isn’t always an easy task to stay focused on what we want to happen when things don’t go as smoothly or quickly as we’d like. And, when things don’t happen as we think they should, frustration can cause us to lose focus.
However, always making an effort to bring your thoughts back to your desired outcome has an effect on the brain. Our repeated efforts work to create a new habit, which ultimately draws what we do want to us in the very best possible way. We just have to trust that it may not happen when or how we want it to! The one thing you can be sure of is that eventually order will reign! Just don’t give up. Don’t let your thoughts be diverted for more than a moment or two in the face of any adversity. That’s exactly how dreams come true.
