Change of Seasons
Nature can teach us alot about ourselves.
Depending on where you live in the world you may witness drastic changes in scenery as the earth rotates and the seasons change. Obviously if you live on a Tropical Island or in the Antarctic you will not experience all four seasons. But for many, experiencing the gradual transitions of nature’s awe inspiring events from Winter to Spring and Summer to Autumn are welcome occurences.
Not only does the climate go through changes but wildlife; plants, trees and the sky all transform seasonally into distinctive and stunning panoramas before your very eyes.
Are there Seasons of your Life also? Yes
SPRING: Like a newborn chick hatching, it is the spring of life.
Spring is when the wide array of colorful flowers bud, and start to bloom. Life is awakened from the cold of Winter. New life springs forth all around us.
For humans this phase of life starts from birth to our teens, when life is new, filled with wonder and excitement.
SUMMER: Summer is the time of fun in the sun, where the growth of spring slows down and stabilizes.
Just as Summer temperatures start to rise, hormonal changes start affecting our bodies and our minds, this phase lasts from our teens to thirties. These are our reproductive years.
AUTUMN: Autumn is the turning point of life.
The air starts to cool, just as our bodies become more sensitive to temperature changes. This is the mid point of life between our forties to sixties. As the leaves change color and start to fall, our bodies too start changing. It is the time of menopause, reversingthe affects of adolescence.
WINTER: Nature becomes dormant.
As Winter approaches the sky turns cloudy gray like the hair on our heads. The brisk cold affects our our bones like the bare limbs of the trees. This is the time when physical beauty fades, but in its place a true sense of self, an appreciation for all of life’s precious moments emerges. A reflection of past accomplishments and failures, of loves gained and lost.
