Hey everyone! Here's a post from last year that I thought would be so helpful today.
Autumn. My favorite season. I love seeing the colors of the trees. I love fall fashion. I love that the air is brisk and that there’s pumpkins and warm colors everywhere. But, I hate letting go. I guess I associate it with quitting and I don’t like to quit. Not being a quitter can be great when it comes to enduring through tough times. But not when it's time to let go of toxicity or letting go of our precious comfort zone. A comfort zone is great...but nothing grows there.
We live in a ride or die society but sometimes it’s good to let go of things, people, place, and mentalities that need to go.Sometimes it's not because they're bad. God may be just saying it's time to go, it's time to move on, it's time to shed those leaves. It’s a slow process sometimes, we may cry, we may try dearly to hold on, we may plant our feet in the ground, tell off people who try to tell us the truth. But, just like the leaves have to fall to bring winter, you have to let go too. The leaves will go from green to red, gold, orange, or plum, they'll get dry just like the dwindling conversations, emotions, finances, and resources. Summer can’t last forever. If the leaves don’t go, then new blooms can’t come in spring.
Sure, it's hard to let go, it's hard to shed. But if the leaves can do it, then so can we.
