It’s my favorite time of the year. Fall has arrived and the mornings are cool and at the moment even foggy. The sun is still strong but the colors have changed. Not just the ones of the leaves.
It’s the color of the sky, the light that is different. Maybe even the color of the ocean (which reminds me that I’m overdue for a walk along the beach again…). Everything seems so slow down. Fall is very different here. There are no snow covered tips of the mountains where I am and while it’s different here it’s also so similar. I have shared the differences previously about how fall used to be and how it is now.
Sometimes I miss the “old fall”. I miss taking my horse on a ride over the fields and into the colorful forest. I miss the cold air and the warm sun on my back while smelling my horse and feeling her move. I miss a moment in time. And this moment in time has been replaced. It has been replaced by hikes with my family. By walks along the beach. By smelling the crisp fall air together with my kids.
Everything changes. There is no way around it. It’s like the four seasons. They come and go if we like it or not. There is no way around it. And every season brings its own special gift to us. Just like the chapters or seasons we go through in our life. Don’t fight it, embrace it and you will see the beauty it has in store for you…
