Last week, I felt exactly the same way I did when I wrote and posted this article almost 2 years ago. It’s not cold yet, but the humidity has gone, it’s cooler in the mornings and evenings, and the days are just a little bit shorter. Once again, I’m sad about the end of summer but just a little excited about autumn! Here is the original article which I love reading from time to time myself. I hope you enjoy it!
Summer is slowly passing us by. Those sweltering 30 degree days spent at the beach and balmy evenings at outdoor bars sipping a cool white wine or beer are over. That festive, holiday atmosphere with Christmas and a New Year promising new beginnings are gone. A cool change is in the air and the leaves are gradually turning brown. The air is less humid and a little crisper. And one day, the temperature plummets, the leaves fall swiftly to the pavement and it’s autumn – in an instant. Just like that.
Changing seasons remind us that change is certain and sometimes out of our control. At times, life can feel boring and stagnant. You go through the same routine of waking up, getting dressed, putting on make-up, catching the same train line and talking to the same people at the office. Until one day, you are offered an amazing new job. Or you find the perfect apartment that is even better than you imagined. And just like that, your life changes and everything feels new.
Although I’m sad that summer is departing, I am looking forward to positive changes. I know that just when I think life is stale and routine, something will change. Just like the seasons. As F. Scott Fitzgerald wisely put it: ‘Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.’
