What Does Autumn Teach You...??

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

Today is the last day of summer.  

Tomorrow we shall greet the first day of autumn.


The memories of summer 2016 live on forever in the snapshots I have stored away in the albums of my heart and I await with childlike expectancy to see what surprises autumn intends to share.  

 

I can only imagine the grandeur of the vibrant colors that shall soon decorate our trees and the blustery days that shall shake those trees bare.  Autumn is a time of turbulence.  To the onlooker, it can appear to be a time of utter confusion and disarray.  Yet autumn is not alarmed.  It has passed this way before and it is familiar with the rhythm of this season.  It is not caught off guard by the upheaval.  

Autumn understands that value of gracefully accepting what is and appreciating the ride.  

Autumn knows that this time is a preparation for the winter dormancy that shall bring forth spring flowers and lead us into summer once again...


What tremendous lessons nature intends to teach...
Am I listening...??
Am I watching...??
What does Autumn teach you...??

I have never thought of autumn as a time of turbulence. I look forward to enjoying the colors of the season and hope you will tell us about the best times and places to enjoy the autumn colors in Pennsylvania.

Hi Maria - another delightful post from you! I love autumn and embrace it fully. The sun feels gentle on my skin, the air has a freshness to it, the light changes quickly - I find it all quite exciting!

Autumn? Is that the time of year when it is only in the mid 80s? Hahaha

For a PA resident, it could be a tad cooler - ha! ha!  :)

It's time to go into the 4th quarter of 2016 with forward momentum and start 2017 with accelerated force of momentum.

Good luck and success.

Maria, I love your writing style and this post is no exception!  As for fall, it is welcomed with open arms here - it means the end to humidity and the beginning of a colorful show of nature.

Good morning Maria.  We don't have that big of a change in seasons here in Florida, so unfortunately I don't get to see the fall colors without traveling a bit.

Autumn teaches me a couple of things. First, in Florida, the oppressive heat is over for a while.  Secondly, in Florida, there is no snow so enjoy the coming winter!

Hi Maria Sapio ,
The seasons are definitely an interesting analogy of life.  Autumn is a perfect example.  It is gorgeous in the grandeur of the color changes... yet those changes are actually the dying leaves, with the trees going into dormancy.  While we enjoy the beauty we must also prepare for what is ahead... winter.  Winter, then is not so bad if you're prepared.  And, so it is with business.   Thanks for the thought provoking post.

It tells me to get the rake out leaves, check for window leaks, gutter cleaned.

Get busy for winter....
