It’s been my experience that before something new happens, the old has to die off first. I love autumn, it’s my favorite time of year. I seem to have a special attachment to fall, maybe because it’s my birthday month. I love the color, but more than that, I love the feeling of change. My senses come alive with the first cold winds, the leaves swirling in the air, and the dark gray skies. I thrive on change. I always hated living in climates where the season stayed basically the same all year.
Autumn is a season of preparing. We’re getting ready for the holidays, family gatherings, and lots of festivities. It’s also a time to prepare for the coming winter, stocking up on winter socks and new sweaters. Change is coming and we need to get ready for it–it’s exciting.
A big change is coming in my own life and it’s not just the weather. I’m preparing for it. I’m excited and a bit nervous, but I know I thrive on change. So, while the leaves outside my window are turning yellow and falling to the ground, I’m busy getting ready for the future.
