“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.” ~ J.K. Rowling
I woke up this morning with the kind of excitement that only comes once a year. I could feel it creep it my veins, my nostrils and my mood. I got out of bed, put the kettle on and went to open the window wide open. That was it: Autumn had finally arrived.
The changing of the seasons has began once more..
And maybe for most people is not a big deal, but here’s why I think it should be a big deal: it brings Hope.
From my experience, sometimes is very hard to make decisions. And I’m talking about any kind of decisions – from how we like our coffee in the morning to what do we want to do with our lives.
It is hard most of the times. Why? Well I think it’s because we, as a society , are more and more worried about the consequences of our actions.
And that’s good and very mature. Up to a point I think.
“But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”
~ Stephen King
There are times in our lives that we need to make big decisions. When maybe we are not happy with our lives, spouses, jobs or just the direction we are heading on.
Times when we are so depressed about these big parts of our lives that we become so focused on putting on masks and convincing ourselves that everything is fine, when actually, nothing is fine.
And that’s why I think we need a bit of a push or a sign to realise we need to change something in our life.
That our time here is not unlimited, like some broadband company offer. This life is a short offer and goes on high demand.
My wish for this Autumn is Hope. Hope to keep fighting for Dreams. Hope to keep our heads above the water. Hope that our broken hearts will heal some day.
When it comes the Seasons of Life, remember that they change faster and faster and we need to enjoy each one of them as they arrive. How do we do that? Simple: Live in the Present.
I wish you all the power to change your lives. The power to Hope this Autumn.
Peace, Love & Happiness.
