What Is Your Season of Life?
Posted by JILL SIMONS
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “season of life.”
It’s often used to refer to whatever stage of life you find yourself in, whether it’s being single, young motherhood, busy school schedules, an empty nest. Or your season of life might be dictated by something besides your vocation – you might be going through a season of grief, sickness, new adventures, or learning.
As the seasons in our life change so does our life. Our days might look different, our priorities might shift, how we allot our time might change.
It might become so all encompassing that we rarely pull back the lens far enough to reflect on what season we find ourselves in and how that is affecting our perspective.
I’ve been doing the young mother thing for six years now and with an almost 1-year-old it doesn’t seem like it’ll be changing anytime soon. I realize that so many of my frustrations, limitations, and hardships flow out of this particular season, and I think that it’s more than likely that you’ll find the same is true for you for whatever season you are in.
This month we’re going to be talking about four umbrella phases of life on all our social media platforms: times of growing, transition, long-hauls, and darkness. We came up with these four phases in reflecting on how we can categorize a variety of the seasons in our lives. These phases also lineup with the four seasons of the year which we will be using to help illustrate the role these different seasons have in our lives.
If you don’t already follow us social media this is a great time to jump on the bandwagon. (https://instagram.com/pinksaltriot/) We will be sharing helpful content about all four seasons, one each week of this month, chatting with women who are in or have experienced these different stages, and sharing ways that we can both experience joy in the midst of these stages and be present to women who are currently in these stages.
If nothing else, I hope you reflect this week on what season of life you find yourself in. Then invite God to show you where he has joy for you in this season, in this very moment, of your life.
