Seasons Change and So Did I

The air is crisp, the leaves are vibrant colors of reds and golds and the smell of change is lingering all around us.  Fall is such a lovely time, especially here in New England – it makes you feel nostalgic for the many things you love about the season, the holidays to come and all the exciting things you used to do this time of year when you were a child.

As we get older, we think less about carving pumpkins, playing in leaves and the anticipation of the first snowfall and we think more about the cost of heating our homes, how much snow we will have to shovel this year and how we will ever afford all the gifts on our Christmas List. 

In the end, life always seems to have a way of working itself out.  The small worries and everyday stresses will disappear and somewhere deep inside we are always able to enjoy the simple pleasures of the season again. 

Even though life changes, just as the seasons do, we need to embrace change with a vengeance, accept that the path we have travelled has led us to this point in time for a special reason, and be grateful we have the opportunities and blessings we do…even if they are not exactly what we thought they would be. 

It is usually during these times of change that the most wonderful things are bestowed upon us – which makes this time of year even more magical.

“Life is measured by the rapidity of change, the succession of influences that modify the being.”
– George Eliot
