I recently read about accepting the change of seasons as a gift. That each one has something to offer. Plus fighting with them is wasted energy as they are rolling in regardless.
After reading about the changing seasons and not fighting them, I thought of the seasons in our lives. That there are often times we want to rush into the next season (adulthood). Or linger in our 20s. Some of us definitely struggle entering into our later seasons. But like nature they are also rolling in regardless of how much we fear, struggle and wish our lives away.
Instead of wasting energy on something we have absolutely no control over what if we flipped it and embraced every new season. Take what we have learned in past seasons and apply or disregard. What can I get rid of this season that no longer applies to me? What experiences am I finally ready for in this season of my life?
I feel every season both in nature and life has something to offer. It is happening regardless so why not roll with it not against it. Ageing has made me appreciate what I have to offer and I am no longer as hard on myself. I don’t have an “ideal” of what I should be. What do I want to experience in this season? Possibilities!
We all know individuals that never had the privilege of entering later seasons. This alone should be a wake up call to grab hold and enjoy where we are right now and where we are going.
What are you looking forward to in your next season? Is it something you can maybe start now? Put things in place for later? We are all in this together.
You can always start now!
