When I was a teen, I got spring fever every year. As the snow melted, and the sun warmed, I had an urge to just run – somewhere, anywhere that was new, that was not ”here”.
I think that traditionally, we tend to think of newness, the fresh growing green grass, the flowers bursting through the soil, as a beginning.
But, really, any season can mean a new start. Not even a season, but the dawning of a new day.
In fall, as the leaves change color, the sun rises later and sets earlier, as the temperatures cool, we may look towards the long and cold winter ahead – depending on where you live of course!
But that time can be a fresh start too. While there isn’t any new growth in nature, there is change. Changes to all of our surroundings.
And change should be what moves us forward, into the future, the next day, the next month, the next season.
Squirrels gather acorns for winter, and we can too!
Save up your happiest memories of spring and suummer, and make more good memories today and everyday!
Every season, like every person, has something to offer.
Be open to what can be.
