Viewing Life in Seasons Can Save Your Life

I’m not a life coach or a Tony Robbins type but I do see that part of my role here on this earth may be to help guide and shape young leaders while encouraging older generations with new takes on “old” issues.

One of the key lessons I have picked up in the last 5 years is this whole idea of viewing life in seasons.

Too many times, we feel that the lot we have been given or chosen is a prison (or worse yet, a death) sentence.

This is not true because life is lived in seasons:

That uninspiring job you’re stuck in can change.

The feeling that your life is over now that you have kids is a lie.

The hell that you are going through this moment will pass. 

This too shall pass.

Academic probation is not the same thing as lethal injection.

You will find employment.

You will be able to love again.  Trust again.  Live again.

This is not quite what you pictured but it’s ok because it’s not forever.

You are going home… soon.

Things change.  People change.  Seasons change.

The Cubs will win the World Series one day….Maybe not.  But hope lives. You have the God-given right and ability to choose hope.

Whether you are enduring the harsh cold of winter or anticipating the mild and pleasant sunshine of spring, it is true that your life is lived in seasons.

Endure.  Enjoy.  Engage.
