I love this time of the year. The whole of the landscape is changing. There are so many diverse colours about and the moving of the summer into autumn is certainly underway.
I was discussing this with some of my friends as we had tried to identify a tree that had shed its leaves. It was amazing to see that nature is such a powerful thing. We seem to miss the changing colour of the leaves. The way that the full green of the landscape is turning into an orange- brown-reddish mixture.
When I moved into my current house it took me months to get used to it. I hated it. It wasn’t my old house and I missed it. Even though it was near a marketplace and I was woken every Saturday morning around 6am to shouting and car doors banging it was my home.
It took months to adjust to my new house and it wasn’t because it was any worse, in fact, it was in an area I always dreamed of living. But why was I so unhappy about moving house?
Most people can adapt to change but when it comes to things of uncertainty I shy away. Starting a new job, moving house or an upheaval in our lives all cause to upset us. We must admit that despite what we are going through changes are usually for the best.
It’s easy to be stuck in a comfort zone. It’s what makes us happy. Even a simple update to a phones operating system has ruffled a lot of people.
Take each day as it comes. I know I do.
