As summer is winding down, and even though I’m in my forties, my feelings seemed tied to my patterns as a kid. Summer ending meant one thing… school was starting back up.
The fall has its own excitement and activities, but the idea of starting up the fall schedule again was always a little depressing.
I’ve been going through it the last few days. I’ve come off vacation and I’m trying to get back into the swing of things.
Even though some of those feelings from my childhood want to set up camp in my head, I have to remember something very important….this is just a season.
These feelings aren’t going to last forever. I’ll get back in my groove and shake it off.
Also, you can’t know what the good times are like if you don’t have the bad times.
You need the savory in your life so you can experience the sweet.
I also have to appreciate that I’m growing in my spirit. I’m handling these feelings much better than I used to. These feelings of gloom used to stick around for weeks. Now, I only experience them for a few days.
I’ll keep practicing gratitude and slowly, but surely do my work. Before I know it, I’ll be so immersed in my next great adventure, I’ll have forgotten that I felt this way at all.
It’s just a moment in time before I move on to the next one.
