As I held my daughter in my arms and showed her the setting sun, my eyes landed on the mainly empty tree branches above us. A few single leaves swayed in the breeze and barely hung on to the branches.
I was reminded that it is ok to let go.
To open your hand and release
whatever you are clutching onto in your life that is holding you back.
It is ok to let go, move on, flutter to the ground,
Even in nature, change is essential.
When one season morphs into the next, it shows us that life is moving forward.
We are here.
We are growing.
We are preparing for the next season,
and it is well.
Whatever season you are in right now, I hope you have peace during this winter season. My life looks different in many ways than it did a year ago and even more so two years ago and three years ago. More change is coming and I don’t know what the future exactly holds but I am excited for what 2021 will bring.
