October is here and it’s starting to finally feel like fall. I always associate this time of year with change. Maybe it’s the leaves turning colors or watching them fall from the trees leaving them bare. It gives me this feeling of starting over. There’s a quote that I wanted to share with all of you today.
“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.”
I think this is such an amazing reminder for all of us. I am constantly trying to find the beauty in empty spaces left by those who are no longer in my life or left by things and people that I have had to walk away from. The art of letting go is never easy, but it’s an essential part of growth and change.
I tend to look back and reflect every time fall comes around. With the year slowly coming to a close and my birthday right around the corner, I can’t help but reminisce on everything that I was given and all the things that were taken away from me over these past 10 months. I relive my highest highs as well as my lowest lows because there have been plenty of both. Everything, whether good or bad, has taught me a different lesson.
I’m thankful for all that I have learned so far this year.
I’m also thankful because I know that each obstacle and every success has brought me right here to this exact moment. It’s where I’m supposed to be at this point in my life.
As each day brings me closer to the next year of my life, I begin to think about all the new opportunities that are about to come my way. I have some exciting, yet scary, changes that will soon be taking place within the next several months. In some ways, I am starting over. I don’t want to officially announce anything just yet, but I will say that I’m about to do a little more letting go, while embracing a whole new chapter in my life.
Isn’t it crazy? We all want change, yet we are afraid of it in some way. In order to move forward and make necessary changes for our growth, we have to also learn to let go of the fear that holds us back. We have to stop preventing ourselves from living the lives we deserve to live.
For some, the fear is so crippling. For others, it’s a motivating factor behind their success. I would rather take a chance and fail then to never have tried at all.
I know what it’s like to feel stuck in your life- like you aren’t getting to the next level. That has been one of the components to the recent ruts that I’ve fallen in and out of lately. I started to feel like I was not moving forward in my life in the ways that I wanted to.
Start looking at fall as the season of letting go and starting over. Learn to embrace change in a positive way instead of being afraid of it. You got this.
I hope that each day, you all get a little bit closer to reaching your dreams and living the lives that you want. Never dull your shine or lose sight of your greatness.
