It has come….that time of year again. The time of change when we are shown all the glory and magnificent beauty nature holds. With colors untold, a feast for the eyes. Thrilling smells of adventure drifting on the new winds rustling through the crisp leaves. Animals scurrying about preparing for the winter months they know are coming. A time when our mind wanders down those leaf filled paths, walking for miles never getting hot or tired. Its those moments when that perfect breeze blows your hair back making you want to lift your arms and let it blow all the troubles and worries right out of your soul.
I have always felt a sense of rebirth during the fall. It brings out a new side of adventure that lurks dormant all summer long. There is something magical about fall….When the world around you shows you just how precious life is and how quickly things can change without warning. It is a time to embrace those situations in nature and your life. If the earth isn’t the perfect example of how to let things go, move on, embrace change, reflect both internally and externally.
A time to slow down and take a good look around you and how you are affecting your life. We are always so concerned about how others affect us, we forget how much of an impact we ourselves have on our daily life. We are the rein holders, where we go is up to us. How much we succeed, fail, pursue, learn, and conquer is all in our hands. We have no one to blame but ourselves for the lack of change that may or may not be going on in our lives.
It is the time today…not tomorrow to make sure you are taking responsibility for all your success and failures. Knowing all along that you can make a change….make a difference….be happy. If we are not secure and content with ourselves alone on that path, absorbing the quiet and oneness with nature, how can we possibly function in the crazy society that is today.
I bid you all a happy fall day. Reflect and meditate in the seasons change. Embrace what you see around you and inside of you. Take that time today, for we are given only one day at a time, waste not those precious moments.
