Summer has quickly faded away, along with the beach, BBQ’s and rooftop parties will be missed.  

     Just like the seasons life is full of change and surprises.   Whether it is a new job, relationship, a teacher, school or new home.  Positive or negative.  Each change is an opportunity to grow and learn.  A new challenge does not have to leave you shaken.  They can help you become more grounded.  Through struggle, reflection and analysis you have an opportunity to reaffirm your morals and goals.  Change helps you to get rid of what weighs us down.  Challenges help us to stand tall in difficulty.  Each time we face a text we are becoming stronger, wiser and better decision makers.

     As the new season approaches embrace whatever comes your way.  Fully aware that you are more than capable to handle it.
