Life begins with shades of green
Ends with a withered shell
But all the colors live in between
The beautiful stories we tell
The Fall/Spring equinox has graced us with its presence. In the northern hemisphere, we are enjoying a cooler breeze and watching leaves sway off of trees in vibrant colors. In the southern hemisphere, the world is waking up from the dormant sleep of winter, preparing to bring life back into the bare limbs of trees.
For us, observing this season’s change is a reflection of our own evolution. We experience our own seasons. We are born with the spring season’s invitation. We bask in the summer of life under long warm days. We shed what has died and no longer serves us with the calming winds of autumn. We go inward to provide introspective dormancy for evolution to be born again.
Let us enjoy these seasons of life. Allow ourselves to experience the change these seasons bring. In change, growth is born and limitations are surpassed. Just as the caterpillar needs the seasons to become a butterfly, so do we to evolve into what we aspire to be.
