As I sit here watching the leaves fall, contemplating the end of a season and the ushering in of the next; As the days shorten and darkness reaches across my yard while picking my kids up from school, I give stock to my life.
Fall tends to be the season of thoughtfulness. A beautiful lull as nature prepares for hibernation. This is the perfect time to reflect. Now is the time to look at ones accomplishments and goals and make plans.
No New Year Resolutions but Now Determinations.
As each leaf detaches itself and floats upon the breeze before settling upon the ground, I enumerate a goal achieved, an opportunity presented, a path yet trodden. So I urge you, take hold of that leaf, a symbolism of opportunity, as it flutters by, offering you a promise of possibilities.
In that moment before it comes to rest upon the ground lies a choice, to either participate or spectate. Thoughts and plans without actions are merely uncaught leaves floating upon the breeze waiting for someone willing to give chase, to grasp what could be, for someone ready and willing to pursue their destiny.
Will it be you?
