Time to Shed!

 

 

 

 

If you are a National Geographic lover, then this picture is one you’ve seen a few times. In certain seasons, animals take the time to shed their old skin for the new fresh coat underneath. Watching a snake go through this process is interesting as they look for rough areas n order to help them remove the dead skin. I would like to point out a principle here.

In life, the phases, situations and circumstances can create a damaged person. When you suffer a deep cut, your body has an automatic process of protecting the hurt area until it heals. Then when there is no reason to protect it anymore, you shed. This principle is critical as we navigate through life. Too many times we are holding on to “dead skin”. Things that remind us of where we once were. They make us sore and keep us hostage. Then we project our issues on to every new person, place and thing we meet. What’s worse is after a while, everyone around us can visibly see we look like the picture above.

No, life is not easy and you will take many bruises, scrapes and cuts. Some of which may take a while to heal from. This is your time to take control of you and get rid of dead skin. This includes people. Yes, always be willing to meet and change your circle of friends. You will have those who are with you fr life, but many are for a season. Treat them as such and be ok when it’s time to let go of them. You do not have to stay the way you are, but change will require the rough patches of life in order to shed. It’s your opportunities to try a different way of thinking. There’s a new you underneath that is waiting to get out. Embrace the shedding process and prepare to breath new air into your life.
