It’s that time of year again….the time when the seasons change. The sunshine goes away and the darkness settles in. Right? Well, here in the north-western part of the good ‘ol US of A, that seems to be the sentiment.
We’ve had a GREAT summer…..okay, we’ve had a GREAT August…as we usually do. The portable A/C unit was used in my household on more than a handful of times….enough to make me wonder if I ever need to get that thing serviced….hmmmm
But now, the chill is returning. The rain came back a few days ago. And the leaves are starting to turn. Oh and how beautiful they are. Maybe we should take their point of view for the next part of the season. What do you think?
I mean, really….our leaves…they are green during the spring and summer. Good and nice and all, but nothing spectacular. But then when they find the shift coming, they know they will just be brown and crinkly and probably fall off their lofty perch soon, they decide to make one last stand of VIBRANCE! And man, do they do a good job!
I love this part of the year, mainly because I love the colors. Am I alone? ::crickets:: Hmm….well, maybe, but probably not! But the point is, that the leaves don’t take the change lying down. They take as their last opportunity for glory.
We are fortunate to not have our life expectancy be ‘the end of the season’ so we aren’t faced with such drastic measures. But does that mean that we can’t act like it? When the blues start to set in….or we’re tired of the changing weather….or we long for sunshine…there’s only ONE things to do.
GO TO HAWAII!!!
Okay….maybe there’s TWO things to do. The above ridiculous statement and MAKE LIKE A LEAF AND TURN! hmmm…..or MAKE LIKE A LEAF AND RUST! hmmm….that’s not it. How about…MAKE LIKE A LEAF!
Make TODAY the day you start something new. Make today the day you make yourself stand out just a little bit more. Build up that confidence. Build up that happiness. Go have some fun! Go MAKE LIKE A LEAF! (Okay, that’s the last time I’ll say that…I’m sorry).
But you get it, right? Right! Don’t regret the change of the seasons…make the most of them!
P.S: MAKE LIKE A LEAF!
