The falling leaves drift by my window...
When the trees let go of their leaves in the fall, they remind us to unwind and let go of stress. As we watch leaves fluttering to the ground in the fall, we are reminded that nature's cycles are mirrored in our lives. Autumn is a time for letting go and releasing things that have been a burden.
It is hard to let go, even though there are times in life when it may be appropriate or necessary. Life is always constant rhythm between gain and loss, coming and going; springing up and falling away, getting and giving. As the leaves fall and are swept away we can allow unwanted thoughts and feelings to leave as well .
The leaves fall and the bare branches remind us of the fleeting nature of all things, that nothing lasts forever.. They also remind us to that the season of change is here. By letting go of the old we can make room for the new.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
