From Christina: Like Lena, I was born in November, so I certainly share her feelings about this incredibly beautiful and thought-provoking time of year. Please welcome Lena to Time for Love.
FALLING IN LOVE AND LOVING THE FALL
I love the fall. Not only because my birthday is in November (which makes me a self-proclaimed Fall Baby through and through) and certainly not because all my favorite TV shows start back up around this season (countdown to SCANDAL, Supernatural, and Walking Dead begins now!).
No, I love the fall mainly for its cool, crisp air and the warm, toasty colors that decorate our earth. From the pale brown to the rustic red and burnt orange, they all blend together to create a tapestry that is beautifully breathtaking.
Fall has always given me a sense of… newness. Yes, it is technically the beginning of the end of the calendar year, but I’ve always felt more revived and transformed at the start of fall. It’s always as if things that were not so clear, gain sharp clarity and things that were aimless suddenly come into reach.
More than anything, I love the fall for its intimacy. I feel closer to all the important people in my life during this season. We spend most of our time with our family around this season and the time spent with my family is like chicken soup for my soul. Actually, it’s better. It’s like a cup of sweet, hot cocoa that glides down my center and spread along my limbs. I love being with my family and the fall affords me more opportunities to spend with them.
Who couldn’t love that?
The list of reason why I love this season is exhaustive. But ultimately it’s a season that does and I hope continues to bring in new things for me to fall in love with. Whether it’s a new TV show, or a new dessert, a new author or book, or simply an aspect of myself that I have finally come to accept and love, I hope this season holds back nothing because that’s what this season is all about.
There is no room for regrets or judgment or even resentment. It’s an opportunity for second chances, for new beginnings, for happy endings, and for those small, quiet moments where you just snuggle up with that favorite person/pet/thing, sip on your hot cocoa, and just breathe.♥
