Spring is the perfect time to open the windows and let fresh air move out the stagnant winter air. It’s time to watch the buds, blossoms and blooms all open to receive. The greens get greener, the browns browner, the blues bluer.

I love spring. It’s a perfect time to awaken to freshness.

Use this change in seasons as a beautiful reminder to mind your mind, and let in some fresh air. To open up, pull out the weeds, plant new seeds, and nurture the growth.

Just like nature awakens to a new, crisp, sunny day, let spring serve as an example to awaken from within. Tara Brach says, “We need to awaken to the constructs of the mind.” See what you’ve been storing in there this past winter (the beliefs, the stories…) and clear it out.

Don’t neglect the mind. Let it be your starting point for spring cleaning.

The only thing we can control is the meaning we give the events of our lives. 

Mastin Kipp

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a big storyteller. I love stories. I love to listen to them, watch them, read them, and then retell them. Storytelling is an art form I admire. A great storyteller is relatable, has charisma, passion and a disarming personality. They captivate you with their words, charm you with their imagination, and keep you eager for more.

So, what does storytelling have to do with your life? Let me explain.

Life, as you see it, know it, experience it, is one big story. In fact, that’s all it is. Your life is a story and you’re a storyteller by nature. You tell stories all day, every day. About yourself, about others, about why, about where, about when, about how.

You operate fully from inside your mind, and your mind adheres to a linear, chronological, reasonable and rational order. It does this to make sense of the world and your purpose in it. It does this to give your life direction.

We see things not as they are, but as we are. 

The Talmud

Maybe there’s no such thing as enemy. Maybe no one’s vying for your demise so much as their own ascension. Maybe the idea of having opposition is your desperate explanation for why you face conflict you don’t understand. Maybe your self-consciousness is behind why you feel judged by others.

Maybe becoming your biggest fan will destroy whatever you perceived was against you.

Maybe becoming your biggest fan is the answer. If not, it’s still a good practice. Why? Because being your biggest fan comes with built-in benefits. First, you get to sound off praise and applause on cue! And you never have to worry about fair-weather fans. Second, you are more inclined to live life to the fullest and seek your constant development and improvement. Making life more rewarding. Third, once you’re a bona fide fan, you’ll start experiencing life swinging in your favor. How you see yourself is how others will see you. Exude confidence and conviction, and you’ll attract a support system you never knew you had. Be present and sincere in your interactions, and others will flock to your attention. Hone a disposition of kindness and gratitude, and you’ll hear others include those very same qualities when they speak of your character. Project peace and love onto others, and you’ll get the same treatment in return.

It starts with you.
