Grateful Heart// Fall

I wake up early, because the sun urges me too. Daylight savings brings me a new joy, as 6 a.m. is what was 7 a.m. and the light is up extra early, ready to break the darkness.

As I sit outside, and the sun is bright and the air is cool, I breathe deeply.

Inhaling the goodness of change, of second chances, of renewal.
Exhale the bad, the worry, the doubts that this season, my favorite season, would come.

Inhale and take in my lovely surroundings, exhale any doubt that change could never be so beautiful.

Fall is living proof that change is the most beautiful thing of all.

I feel the grass poking through my shirt, as I stare up through the trees, sunlight dancing on my face, my neck, my collarbones. I am here, I am present, I am alive.

Leaves are scattered like my thoughts. Leaves fall quietly, resting themselves among the grass.

That’s one of my favorite parts of fall, the change is silent. Leaves don’t need to make commotion as they fall to the ground and yet they never go unnoticed. Again, change doesn’t call attention to itself. Change is simply needed.

I wake and praise this beautiful day. I walk and admire this beautiful life.

They call it Fall, I call it my reason to rise.

Link up with Emily at Ember Grey and share what you are grateful for today.
