Summer is coming to a close.
I regretted it at first . . . because of the sudden change in temperature.
But now I see how beautiful it is, this beginning of Fall.
My flowers, who I thought were dead, have grown, flourished, and multiplied, and they praise the sun with their vibrant, multi-colored gorgeousness.
The sun beams reach into the living room, but they are welcome now. They give a pleasant warmth to the light coolness of the house.
I am grateful for this change in season, and I am grateful for the changing seasons of my life.
I am coming into my own now.
I am leaving behind a life of “shoulds” and “ought to”s and finding a life of peace and purpose. I’m learning to listen to myself and value my needs and wants.
I’m grateful that I relied on myself to make an important decision yesterday. I listened to myself, I sought advice from the spiritual world, and I made my decision. And I felt contentment, and increasingly so, when I discovered the universe was sending me signs that confirmed my choice.
I am much, much, much happier right now than I was at this time last year. And I am extremely grateful.
