Trees & the leaves that they hold during autumn just might be one of my favorite things in the world. Over these past few days of noticing the leaves changing from green to beautiful hues of reds, oranges & yellows, I realized something about them I'd never noticed before.
The trees are celebrating change. They dance & let go & they rejoice as they welcome a new season unfolding. They don't try to control the inevitable changing of seasons, but they celebrate with the brightest and most beautiful colors as they let their leaves fall.
And my goodness how I wish I would always accept change in my life this way, yet a somehow I always find myself fighting it. Isn't it true of each of us though? We helplessly cling to what we know, instead of celebrating and letting go. We hold tight, fearful of stepping into the unknown while we forget what joy might lie in the days to come. I think there's such a sweet & simple lesson to be learned from these little leaves. Change, though not always easy, is something worth celebrating. And there is so much joy & life & beauty to be found when we release our tight grip to let it all take place.
