I love fall! Actually, I love every season in Park City. No reason not to! Usually during the fall I think how death can be such a beautiful thing (beautiful leaves turning and floating to the ground etc. etc. get it?). This year, I came up with a different take on fall. I was out in the aspen trees at about 8500 ft. I was in it! They were above me, below me and everywhere in between. I was walking and thinking (multi-tasking at it’s finest). It came to me then, there. Fall is not about death. Fall is about letting go so you can live. The trees have to shed their leaves so they can store their energy for the long winter that awaits.
I couldn’t help but think how this applies to life. Sometimes we have to shed things, to LET GO so we can live. Some things that appear so beautiful and amazing are actually taking all of our energy and if we don’t let it go, we will not survive. We have to let go, so we can live. I know I have things in my life I need to fully let go. We all do. These things take so much energy, they take up precious space in our brains, they hinder us, hold us back, and hold us down. They prevent us from fully living the life that we were created to live. Once we let go, we realize, after time, that we now can focus on US. We can refresh, rejuvenate and restore ourselves. We can become who we were created to be. Most of all, we can be fully ALIVE!!! Fall is beautiful. Letting go is even more beautiful.
