The beauty of a timely process


I recently came across a group of Autumn quotes I’d like to share for they remind me a great deal of the beauty and joy of life in retirment.



Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.                                                                                    Samuel Butler

October (like marriage) is a symphony of permanence and change.                                        Bonaro W. Overstreet

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.             John Donne

Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.     Albert Camus

And my favorite…

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.   
        Stanley Horowitz

What does the mosaic of your life say about you? Have all the seasons of your life come together to create a work of art that makes you happy? How will you take all that’s happened throughout your life and create a mosaic that feels beautiful, joyful and full of even more potential?  In other words…how will you make joy over spilt milk, missed opportunities or fabulous experiences?
