As we are now in the middle of the holiday season, the biggest holiday season of the year - how much time are we taking to think about the season we are in? With all of the hustle and bustle around this time of the year, it is easy to get caught up in running around while still working to maintain our every day life and take some time for ourselves.
Some of us find ourselves in the season of giving - meaning, you may have a family member in need, a child, a spouse, significant other. They may need you right now and the gifts you have. Perhaps you have the gift of being organized and getting things done. That in itself is a gift for people who are in need of help. The last thing that a person in need should worry about is if things are being taken care of in a timely fashion whether it is a bill that needs to be paid, phone calls, or food shopping.
Maybe you are in the season of receiving - meaning, you have a need and you have to rely on other people to do things for you. A recent life or status change may put you in the season of receiving. Please know that this is ok - I was a person that thought that this wasn't ok - to be in receiving mode. This left me tired, worn out and angry at times. I had to learn (and it took a while) that if someone is offering to do something for you and you need the help; accept it, embrace it. In life we go through several seasons and while you may be in the season of receiving in one sense, you could be in the season of giving also.
I feel like I've been through all of the seasons a few times over - especially giving and receiving. Right now, I am in the season of empowering people to embrace and follow their dreams and giving them the tools to make this happen. Since I love writing and sharing my writings with others, researching tools and resources has really helped me to help others. I have enjoyed this since I can walk right alongside people who are trying to also reach their goals.
A recent post on the blog talked about collaboration, tools, resources and connections and the steps to take to get you to where you want to be. Not sure where to start? Let me know and I am happy to help you. I'm sure I can also help you find someone or a resource that you feel comfortable with to get started. Remember to make your voice heard and embrace the season that you are in. As a good friend always says to me, we all have our turn, our season and let's be our best on the journey that is ahead of us.
