Life lessons the season of Autumn / Fall can bring to all… and how to stay positive through seasonal changes.
Like most things in life, how we experience the change of season and weather, is down to our personal perspective. This post is all about purposely choosing a positive perspective as we transition into a new season…
Believe me, as someone with chronic illness that is worsened in the colder weather I know oh too well the amount of dread the colder weather months can be met with and the effect of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) depression that seasonally comes in the dark Autumn and Winter months.
However, learning to see the beautiful life lessons of the season helped me to embrace the change instead of dreading it – as it can’t be changed through dread or worry so might as well be enjoyed for its positives even though it brings along negatives. ‘Balance’ and ‘every cloud has a silver lining’ come to mind.
“What possible lessons could the Autumn / Fall give me?” I hear you ask.
Let me explain…
The Autumn/Fall trees are about to show us how beautiful changes can be:
The season change is inevitable and can’t be skipped, so instead of dreading the change and worrying about it, lets embrace the change and remind ourselves that change can actually bring new beauty for us to see.
The trees are affected by cold weather too, it makes their leaves lose their green colour and then fall off altogether. Yes the trees can’t change the changes that are to come, so instead they carry off the differences as a beautiful coat change for all to admire.
