mountains full of brown
muted colors fill my view
moments to reflect
on quiet beauty below
reveal the cycles of life
I may want grand colors and awe-inspiring views, but life gives us what it will. Similarly, we may want to be happy all the time, but life is filled with cycles, peaks, and valleys. The key to flowing with life is acceptance, creating purpose/ meaning, and looking for good where we are. I may know these truths, but it doesn’t mean I live them all the time. This fall has been full of muted moments rather than glorious joys. I feel rather numb and removed from life, but still, I have a quiet core of strength and acceptance. They keep me anchored during this season of change (autumn) reflected by my loss of job and needing to find work and income again.
Even mountains full of muted colors can reflect beauty or new perspectives. And the long quiet days offer peace and rest when I might have preferred work and busyness.
If you’re wondering about the bright golden colors in my new header photo, that image is from a previous colorful autumn view. We can enhance our muted moments with creativity, imagination, and love!
To acceptance and muted moments.
