Hello Lavish Land!
Summer is ending and Fall is quickly approaching. Some (including me) are excitedly awaiting this change of season while others dreading are less sunny days and more layers of clothing.
As I prepare my closet for the impending weather change…adding cardigans and scarfs while subtracting sleeveless maxis and short sexy shorts…you know, tedious stuff like that… I began to think how life is just like my ever exploding closet (Sorry Husband). Adjusting myself to meet the needs of the season.
Just as passing months bring the change of seasons, life brings about seasons of change. There are times when life throws so many lemons that you don’t have the energy to make lemonade. Everyone says “enter lemons…exit that sweet tarty drink”. What if you don’t like lemonade?! What is supposed to happen then?!
Then there are times when life is so fabulous that everything you touch turns to gold, sterling silver, or rose gold (whichever you prefer). So good that, when you enter a room time stops, the winds begin to blow, and your theme music starts. These are are glorious times indeed!
Well, with both of these times have one thing in common. They will change.
There are a few things that keep me balanced in times of famine and time of feast. First, exercising my faith. Faith.. a word so small; however, the meaning is so huge. It helps me to stay grounded, humble, grateful, and prepared. Secondly, taking time for me. Taking time to be quiet and wait on clarity for my next move or a voice that says…stay where you are. Finally, have a good laugh with family, students, or girl tribe. Laughter will always change the atmosphere!
Just as you must prepare for the changing of the natural seasons….you must do the same for the changes in your life. How you do that is totally up to you. Just do it!
Also, May I add that including a great Moscato, an awesome bag, or fabulous new ensemble always make a gloomy day bright and a bright day shine even brighter. Ooooooh, I just imagined all three at the same time…my soul can not contain the joy!!
Let’s toast to all seasons of the life and a magnificent fall warbrobe! Clink…Clink…Clink
Until the next time…Stay Lavish
