The spring season symbolizes growth. Whether the buzzing bees, blooming flowers, Easter holiday, or the urge to spring clean motivate you, when you pay attention you can feel the impulses gently nudging you to shift gears, make changes, or start something new.
Psychoanalyst, Carl Rogers, wrote his famous "potato story," which describes our natural tendencies to grow toward the light. As a child, while sleeping in the basement, Rogers noticed that the potato crop, despite living in complete darkness, still thrived. The potatoes found the smallest crack of light from within the dark walls and drank the nourishment. They grew toward the light!
We are all destined to grow and flourish. Sometimes our thoughts, experiences, and histories get in the way of us seizing our growth potentials! Fortunately, we can always make a decision, right here, right now, to grow toward the light! The opportunities exist once we open our eyes and hearts.
