“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” (Marilyn Monroe)
As I look outside at the changing leaves, it makes me a little sad. The summer is over and soon it will be winter. Having said that, rather than mourn the loss of the lazy days of summer, I can choose instead to rejoice in the beauty of the fall…the crisp autumn air, the brilliant red and yellow leaves and the chirping of the birds before they head south for the winter. Every season brings a change, but it’s our attitude about that change that makes all the difference.
The same can be said about life. Do we spend all of our time mourning what once was, or do we choose to accept change as a part of life, and look for the good in what is yet to come? Can we teach our children the peace that comes from accepting what is and letting go of what they can’t control?
