In due season

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning,
but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
~ Maria Robinson

Seasons come and seasons go.  In my own life, I’ve noticed this holds true in friendships and close relationships.  Sometimes we’re on the same page, traveling a similar journey along the same path.  We share a connection that defies logic.  And then at other times we couldn’t be more polar opposites.  No matter what season we’re in, however — a dormant winter, dark and lacking growth, or the spring of new potential — each one provides us with another chance to take an inventory of our lives and re-evaluate where we are and where we’re going (and if these are the people who will make the trek with us).  But if we take too long to think on it, we may miss that window of opportunity when we can either leap into the next season, or patiently prepare for what’s to come.

What keeps you from starting today?
