“I searched among her crayons for a color that represented autumn and pulled out an orange-toned crayon, never used. It read “Bittersweet,” and I wondered why that particular name. Autumn was my favorite time of year… I was always ready for the change. I guess some people didn’t see it that way. Some people wanted to cling to summer… I loved both seasons, but I thought no one would ever call spring bittersweet, even though it was just another change, another new cycle, an end to one season and a beginning for another in an endless, never-ending spiral.”
― Janet Rebhan,
I ran across this quote today that reminded me of what we are going through in the world right now. It truly is Bittersweet. I know a lot of people are in fear right now but there is so much goodness happening too!
We are getting clearer on who we are and what is important. We are stepping up to the plate of humanity and serving others. We are learning to look through the eyes of Love for the entire world. We are all collectively thinking of new horizons that we will be so grateful for.
Just as the changes of the seasons throughout the year and the seasons of our life can be bittersweet, so is this time we are in.
I encourage you to look for the Sweet. As I typed this my daughter popped in to say hi to me and I looked at her sweet face and I knew what it all meant.
Look for the sweetness. It is always there if you look.
I also this today in a Facebook Post that my friend Meredith Ann Deasley shared. Meredith is a Certified Life Coach, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Spiritual Vitality Expert!
This is what I saw and it Inspired me!
She shared her notes for the day and this is a snippet from them. I love it!
It says in regard to how she sees herself:
“The way I taught myself to turn every negative into a positive from a young age. (and people think I’m naive! hee hee) Meredith Ann Deasley
Well I have to say I loved that. I am seeing so much positive in all that is happening and I continue to do so. Of course I have compassion and empathy for others and I understand some people’s anxiety is running high, but I do think we can choose to see Goodness and Sweetness and I hope that you look for and enJOY the Sweetness too. It is even sweeter at times like this because we appreciate it more. 🙂
