"The only thing constant in life is change"
As the trees drop their remaining leaves and the colors turn from bold, beautiful reds and oranges to dull browns and grays. As the days grow shorter and there are fewer hours of light. As the skies turn from pastels to greys and midnight blues. As our physical energy moves from rambunctious and playful to sleepy and melancholic.
We take the time to slow our minds and rest our bodies. Time to reflect and rejuvenate.
They say the darkest hour is just before dawn. The greatest opportunities for change come from the dark moments. As with the seasons, darkness always makes way for light, casting only shadows for a time, and eventually fading. As winter turns to spring, there is new light and fresh, new growth. And with spring, comes summer, a time for blossoms to fully bloom and reflect their beauty to the rest of the world. Simultaneously, we follow this path.
And so it is, the cycle of change.
