Fall A Time for Change and A Time for Remembering


Its a beautiful fall day today and Ive enjoyed my first cup of coffee outside on my back deck. As I listen to the birds sing, and watch these enormous squirrels jumping around, I savor a quiet moment alone before my day begins.

For whatever reason, its moments like these, which don’t happen very often, that I begin to think and reminisce about the past, my life, people in my life and experiences I have shared with them along the way.

A myriad of people come to mind that have been in my life that no longer are. People who Ive met through friends and business acquaintances that I have lost contact with over the years and family living abroad.

A few people are no longer here and are only in spirit, and I suppose I think of them most often, as I can never be with them again.

I feel blessed and saddened at the same time to have known the people I have known. I wonder about the ones who are out there somewhere, how are they and what are they doing. Are they doing well, what do their lives look like now. Have they had hardships to bear like me?

I look back at my years and realize how quickly time has passed. It didn’t seem such a long time ago that I had graduated from school and I was determined to make the world a better place. I was going to make a difference.

I don’t know to what capacity Ive made a difference in the world, but I know I have tried! I have had some small successes, big successes and some big failures too. Ive always been the type of person to pull up your boot straps when the going gets tough and it has been tough, really tough this last year, but I’m still here and I’m doing relatively well.

Sure, I’m not exactly where I want to be “yet” but I’ve come to the realization that I’ve spent the majority of my life waiting, searching, and hoping to get to the next level. The next level of what was always unknown, elusive or just different.

I suppose that’s what experience gives you – wisdom. And wisdom I realized this morning is taking all that your life has given you thus far and appreciating what you have now in the moment. Sure, we all have hopes and dreams – goals I like to call them, but it’s important to smell the roses from time to time, well at least more often than you think you should.

Life is FAST isn’t it? I think of all I need to get done in a day, all that I do, and how quickly the day goes by. Day by day, week-by-week, year-by-year, that’s how you suddenly find yourself wondering “where did all the time go”?

So, if you can, take some time out of your busy schedule today and see what comes to you. Maybe you’ll get a better perspective on things and life with whatever it is you are going through right now, or maybe you can simply enjoy the memories that come flooding in to remind you of how beautiful life really is.
