Embracing All Seasons of Life

One of my favorite things about autumn is the shifts, the changes. The seemingly endless summer is coming to a close. To many onlookers, plants are starting to wilt back, loosing their beautiful colors, and therefore purpose.

But I see a whole new bounty of textures and colors. 

As this beautiful wildflower bush is completing its lifecycle for the year, some of the Spring flowers are dying back. But revealed are what will become lovely seedpods and beautiful Autumn texture.

I would be remiss to not share the obvious life analogy here—we all go through seasons in our lives. Some are full of vibrant color, some of them appear monotone and drab. Just as some may think only the springtime flowers of this plant are attractive, it’s important not to get caught up in what we think a beautiful life should look like. While it may not be the idyllic socially acceptable picture of what we are told our life should look like, we might have a more uniquely beautiful one right in front of us.
