The end of March marks an end of a season for us.
In May 2016, the boys and I moved into a little two and a half bedroom garden flat. It was the start of settling into a life without Oli’s dad, it was terribly hard and yet, exhilarating!
Here we are at the end of March, boxing up all our belonging, moving a mere kilometre and a half, into a brand new beginning!
In May 2011, I started my employ with my current organisation. On the first of April 2013, I started a new role in the business systems department of the same organisation.
Here we are at the end of March, and I am finishing off the role of systems support specialist. On the first of April, I am moving to our sales department.
All of the above changes have happened in Autumn!
I can’t help but notice all these changes happened in autumn. Initially, I simply recognised the change in my career and if I am very honest, I was a bit worried. Autumn generally leads into winter. Symbolically, winter isn’t the greatest month!
Yet, autumn based on all of the above clearly marks growth in my life. Growth only comes from change and the positive interpretation of these changes. There’s a mystery in the unknown, it encapsulates what I feel in my heart, a little bit of anxiety and a whole lot of hope.
Autumn represents a time of letting go, allowing the leaves to fall off the trees, baring themselves to the coming winter. Boxing up your life does exactly that, as I look through photos, documents and random objects, I am reminded of things that have happened over the years. And as I throwing things out, I’m letting go.
I am literally letting go and opening myself up to the new experiences, both physically and psychologically.
The End of a Season
It an exciting time for us. While the unknown if a bit frightening, I embrace every change and every challenge. with vulnerability and courage.
