“That perfect bliss and sole felicity, the sweet fruition of an earthly crown.” – Christopher Marlowe
The leaves do not ask permission to turn brilliant orange. They become what they are meant to be in due time, right on schedule. Stop asking permission to live your life. Let go of what others think or what you think that they think. And do not be a barrier to their becoming either. Be kind, tender, yet tough enough to move on when you must.
Life is filled with real drama – beauty, joy, despair, redemption, delight. No need to make it up.
We change when we allow ourselves to be changed. Become the bright orange that you’ve been hiding, waiting for permission to come out. Permission granted.
