While looking over the last year of photos on my Instagram feed, you can tell my most favorite seasons are fall and spring. Of course I also love summer and some parts of winter too, however my photos don’t seem to show it as much.
It’s the gorgeous changes of the trees during these seasons that make my neighborhood walks so full of beauty.
That and the stunning sunlight warming up brisk mornings and cool evenings.
I’m not one to ponder deep thoughts often, but I do find it interesting that the most beautiful seasons in Michigan are the ones that go through the most change.
And ironically most people including me tend to resist change. It’s uncomfortable and unknown. It’s hard and scary. You have to take risks and are not always guaranteed rewards.
It’s often far easier to stay in our comfortable cocoon of perceived safety.
But I think we can cheat of ourselves of unknown beauty that will enrich our lives beyond measure if we resist opportunities that require change.
I love that every six months our wonderful world reminds me that change is beautiful.
