"The seasons are what a symphony ought to be: four perfect movements in harmony with each other." - Arthur Rubinstein
It happens every year...
The days get shorter,
The sun lower in the sky,
The leaves fall from the trees,
The yellow leaves letting go first,
The red leaves being more stubborn to fall.
The temperature gets colder,
The flip flops get put away,
The warmer clothes come out,
And the Christmas decorations begin to emerge...
As the years go by, I notice more of the delightful nuances in the changing seasons. Instead of here-we-go-again, I find myself noticing miracles in my day. I am not sure if I am becoming more patient, or just not so wrapped up in my to-do list, so my eyes, and mind, can take time to notice the wonderful changes around me. Maybe as I get older I also realize I should appreciate the time I am given here...
Whatever the reason, I believe embracing the changing seasons, even loving the ones I don't particularly like, will help me accept other changes in my life which can't be altered, only accepted. Change is inevitable, it is up to me to adapt or get grumpy. I would rather be happy, so I guess adapting and finding the good in it all is the only way to go...in life and seasons...being more like a yellow leaf, than a red leaf holding on for too long...
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a beautiful day!
