Fall, the grand finale
Even though the official first day of fall lands on September 22nd, it seems like we are closing in on summer 2020 and locking down into fall mood in many corners of the world, be it warm or not.
This has been a difficult summer for me (as it has been for a lot of us), don't get me wrong I have had some absolutely wonderful once in a lifetime kinda days but one profound thing didn't happen this year and that was visiting my grandparents place. For most of my life summers at Grammas was it, her passing last year not only ended so many traditions, it has forced me to find new ones, which I have yet to carve out.
And though letting go of this summer feels unfair, I am ready to write a whole new chapter for a fresh season ahead.
Fall is generally regarded as the end of the growing season. However I think it's the perfect time to re-evaluate your own personal growth and where you are heading towards.
Fall is the harvest season, a time of celebration for many cultures when they gathered in their crops. Harvest celebrations combine giving thanks for the past and for future abundances; not only for crops but for every single thing you are grateful to have.
The season is often regarded as a melancholy time and has inspired many writers and poets. Even me.
And all at once, summer collapsed into fall. - Oscar Wilde
Surrender to the new season and allow yourself to feel the changes. From now until the winter solstice, days will shorten and nights will lengthen. See the opportunities this can bring and make the most of autumn; enjoy all that comes with it - the crisp air, cozy atmosphere, countless candles, stories by the fire place and apple crumble pie.
Even though nature looks like it is ending, it's a time of newness and freshness; everything is full of potential. That's my favorite time; potential.
potential - /pə(ʊ)ˈtɛnʃ(ə)l/
having or showing the capacity to develop into something in the future.
That's where anything and everything that can happen lies; all the good that has an opportunity to blossom.
It is the perfect season for socks, shawls, mitts, blankets and all those good woolly things. Fall fashion is the best, don't you think?
Each season has its perks, but none quite like the fall. It's mesmerizing to watch the leaves turn, making the world a beautiful canvas where one can sit, relax and just be.
Fall is a time for inner peace and outward love. And I'm going to hang on to it for as long as possible; it is my favorite season. But I do not fear the winter, for winter has it's own magical moments that I will forever love and cherish too.
So let's dive into this new season ahead and really see to potential in all that it brings.
