Living In the Season

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. Henry David Thoreau, American essayist, poet, philosopher, naturalist

Summer is winding down. Schools in my area start next week. My husband and I change our living location from Florida to Illinois in the summer in order to spend time with our adult kids and grands. We will culminate with two big family events this weekend then our mission will be accomplished. We have spent time with all six kids (three on my side, three on my husband’s side), ┬átheir spouses, and all 19 grands plus two great grands.

We have immersed ourselves in the season. Now we are now getting ready for a September trip then back to our home in Florida until next summer.

Affirmation: I live in each season.

Coaching questions: Have you done all you wanted to do this summer? What will you do with the time that remains? What does it mean to you to “live in each season?”
