As I’ve gotten older I really value the concept of seasons. Not just in the sense of weather and appreciating the fall leaves, dormant winters, blooms in spring, etc.., but in the bigger sense of how that applies to life. We all have seasons of simplicity, stress, growth, relative ease, challenges, and either moving forward or backward. Being able to focus on what you learn from those seasons in your life and using them as you go forward has been a great lesson I’ve learned. I have to admit, it sounds quite simplistic. After all, who wouldn’t learn from their mistakes, right? My guess is that you are smirking right about now…thinking, hmmmm, I know a few of those people – maybe even myself! I do believe that seasons give us a chance to improve and change the direction of where our happiness arrow is pointing.
