Leaves + Tanks.
MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️:
This morning, I woke up to the sound of my mother-in-law blowing leaves at 7:53am 😳. Yup. It used to be 9am but it keeps getting earlier. It’s a new season for her…plus, the leaves are plentiful:).
Last week, we got the barn ready for winter. We know that season is coming. We know we need to prepare and expect what comes with winter. It just is what it is.
Last night, one of the ball boys at the soccer game was running around in a tank top. We were all bundled up in the stands in coats and blankets. We were warm. He was cold. He was trying to wear what you wear in one season in another and it wasn’t working.
We must learn to BE in the season we are IN. To not try and “dress” like we did in previous seasons. Not try and go back to previous seasons OR bring forth what worked in one season into another.
This can be a hard lesson. I’m raising my hand. I want to learn to be soooo fully present in each season…loving it for what IT IS and not missing a single nuance of it by looking back at what was or what may be.
