The leaves have begun their transition into a slow, fading form of life. Their yellow has been showing and some deep reds have started to appear. When they fall it’s only with grace that they reach the Earth, and this process of death is actually the beginning of renewal, not simply an ending. It is cyclical, as are the seasons of our own lives. We too, are changing with the seasons and letting go of the old.
Moving from one time in the journey of our life into another chapter which may look vastly different than anything you’ve ever experienced before. To me, the most important part of transitions, new beginnings, or different chapters is about shedding the old, the stagnant and the unnecessary that doesn’t serve us.
“The inertia of the mind urges it to slide down the easy slope of imagination, rather than to climb the steep slope of introspection.” – Marcel Proust
