Fall: season of change.
This is my fall. This is the season that I am becoming the person that I’ve been dreaming of for 4 years.
FOUR YEARS, you guys.
As I look at the beauty everywhere – all of the colors, the sunshine, and even these cold, wet days – I feel so grateful to be in this season.
Sometimes it happens that you blink and all the trees have changed colors, or the leaves are already on the ground. Where did summer go? The change seems to happen in such a blur, life seems to happen in such a blur, that you don’t have time to just be in it. To see the changing.
Other times, you are able to slow it down. To notice that this tree has a little more color than yesterday. And that one over there is still clinging to its green glory. You take the time to sit outside with your hot cup of coffee and just breathe in that fall air.
Do the trees ever wonder why one has more color than they do? Are they sitting there asking themselves WHY HAVEN’T I CHANGED ALREADY?!
Do they think that they aren’t as prepared as their neighboring tree, or that they should be further along?
Of course they don’t – they aren’t humans, they don’t have minds and souls. (as far as I know anyway – do you know something I don’t?) No, but can you see how detrimental it is to ourselves when we are constantly comparing? When we are in such a rush to get there, wherever there is, that we miss what is happening in the meantime?
Change isn’t always easy, but this is the process.
And this process is what will be your life – you’re never going to get ‘there’. You’re already there. There is here, right now, this moment.
So go outside.
Breathe that crisp air deep into your lungs. All the way to your soul.
Let it cleanse you.
Let go of the tension, the build up.
The heat, the stress, the constant go of the summer.
Savor this very moment.
Nothing else matters.
What’s your season of change?
Are you allowing it? Or are you resisting it?
Relax into it.
You’ve got this, momma.
