“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
I love the notion of autumn leaves as flowers and the thought of this time of year as a second spring. It is such an inspiring time when new visions and ideas come to life after long, sunny days of summer give way to cool, crisp air and a wonderland of leaves that go from green to yellow to orange to red to brown and every shade in between. The air is vitally charged with inspiration.
Schools are back in session. Business is bustling. Professionals on the cutting edge of their industries begin to share exciting new ideas at conferences around the states and the world. We are inspired and self-challenged to expand our abilities and dreams.
Meanwhile farmers across the country harvest their autumn vegetables and fruit. Pumpkins and apples, pears and parsnips, cabbages and late season corn begin to appear in the supermarkets. Thoughts of peace, prosperity and plenty swirl outward to all living beings as we slowly begin to anticipate the joyous holiday season that lies just ahead.
What new thing will you attempt this season?
Is there something you’d like to learn or do for the first time? What visions did you hold for yourself to accomplish this year? Have you accomplished them or at least attempted to? Maybe it’s time to revisit those New Year’s Resolutions you made and see if as we head to the finish line you can complete your list. You have a few months left. That way you can add something new to next year’s list.
