Fall is hands down my favorite time of year. It consumes me with memories of my childhood and the renewed hope that comes with change.
I feel the anticipation build as I begin to see brilliantly colored leaves enjoying their “last call” before lazily descending to the ground, when I smell smoke that has drifted from an eager chimney happy to once again be serving a purpose in the family home, and when I hold my steaming mug of afternoon coffee allowing it to remove the chill from my body while it sends an electric surge of energy through my veins. Deeeelightful!
I look forward to evenings outside, sipping on cool, crisp wine paired with decadent cheese, and wearing chilly weather layers (boots, scarves, sweaters, oh my!)
It truly amazes me how the slightest hint of change–something new on the horizon– can charge your battery, refresh your soul, and launch you into reset mode dissolving the humdrum bore of life that has infected you like a virus and lifting that old familiar friend named “Depression” that has settled in like an unwelcome, unwanted visitor that refuses to leave because it’s just so darn comfortable here.
Well, here it comes, the delightfully dependable loop that we call a “season” but count on like a best friend that offers unwavering assurance and inspires us to pursue excellence while walking through uncharted territory with the understanding that “it is good.”
