Just like trees, our colors change… we evolve. No situation and no one ever stays the same. Life keeps moving forward. It is best to allow ourselves time to reflect upon our evolution – what parts of ourselves are we ready to let go of? What behaviors and/or people are no longer serving us? If we want to start over fresh in the spring with a clean slate, we need to do the work of letting go in the fall.
It is the same with people. Sometimes people come into our lives for only a season and others stay awhile longer. It is important to know who is a “seasonal friend” and let them go when it is clear the season has ended.
Everything falls away. Anything and everything that is meant to leave your life leaves at exactly the right time. No sense in trying to hold onto something you think was right for you. Remember what you lose, was never meant to be yours or was only yours for a season.
The tree knows when to let go of its leaves. If it held onto every dead leaf, it would be a very ugly and sad tree. And if it held onto every dead leaf, it would block the progress of new growth preventing the blossoming of new buds. We are no different than nature. For progress to be made in our lives, we need to let go of the old when we feel the season has ended. Being in tune with the cycles of life grounds you in the assurance that what dies to the old, surely begins again anew.
