Change


If there is no struggle, there is no progress. |Frederick Douglass|
                                                                             **
Fall is here. The leaves are changing and the days are growing shorter. There is a chill in the air alluding to a long and frigid winter. Things are changing again.  
Change. 
Have you changed? In the seasons that have passed, is anything different? Are you going through a process of change? Is there a metamorphosis taking place somewhere? Can you tell the difference? Can anyone? How do you feel?
Change is necessary. There are days of extreme weather, where everything is fearful. There are days of calm, when you feel at ease. All of this works on nature; the trees continue to grow, the plants, flowers, grass…it all moves like clockwork. Sometimes it changes depending on extremity, but always there is a process at work. Life goes on. Change continues to happen in different increments everyday. One must be like nature---allowing change to manifest; and whether good or bad, reflecting the beauty of every moment. Because despite hailstorms, thunderstorms, snowstorms, tornadoes, amid the disaster, there is always something that survives the wreckage. 
Do not allow yourself to be lulled into stagnancy. Put in the effort: whatever seeds you are planting, continue to water them. Plant where you can. Do not become weary or discouraged; do not marinade in frustration. There is a process at work; you can’t abort or abandon it. You must go through all of it.
