Where has the year gone? How can it be November already? It seems the year is flying by. But, November it is. The Dark Days of the year are upon us. Time to settle in for the long haul of the winter. Of course, today it was 73 degrees outside and absolutely gorgeous- not at all how I think of November. I even took a little walk outside.
Collect some Autumn leaves (you can also do this in the Spring or Summer with flowers)
Toss them all on the table and examine them. Really look.
Are they beautiful?
Are they all the same?
Are they perfect?
Do their imperfections in any way detract from their beauty?
Now work to apply the lessons of the leaves to yourself...
We are all bruised, battered and chewed by life. We are all different. But it is the imperfections of our lives and our differences that make life interesting. Live would be boring without imperfection and variety.
Revel in the seasons and in who you are.
