Many people dread autumn and see it as a time of decay and forerunner of cold barren bleak days.
Me, I love Autumn. It is my favorite time of the year. I love seeing the flowers fade and look for the beauty therein. I think Nature is a wonderful example of how we can live our lives.
Summer brings such a bright glorious flash of color and brilliance, followed by a relaxing period of fading soft beauty, then she dies back. To rest and rejuvenate over the winter in order to regrow again in Spring. Wouldn't it be nice if we gave ourselves permission to work and grow, then rest, recuperate and "flower" again. It is essential for us Humans to allow ourselves to rest from time to time, in order to experience brilliance, and to formulate new ideas, and not just run on and on and risk burn out. Or even worse, never to experience the Beauty and Good of where we are, and what we have accomplished so Far!
