It always happens this time of year. Like a gentle nudge (or a slap in the face) the seasons change. Jarring awake reflection. Shouting, “Hey, look at me! Check this out!” And there is an inexplicable, human force, along with shortened days, giving cause for deliberation.
Here’s what I know about change:
1. It’s one thing you can count on.
2. Without a bit of change to spice things up, life, like your garden, would be tasteless.
3. Change gives you something to look forward to… or complain about.
4. It provides an opportunity for growth and unexpected discoveries.
5. Plan for it.
The seasons remind us that change is a reliable part of life. My garden reminds me of it’s beauty.
“At Christmas, I no more desire a rose than wish a snow in May’s newfangled mirth; but like each thing that in season grows.” – William Shakespeare
