It is the time of the season again where the trees are about to shed their leaves, the scent of pumpkin coffee permeates, people wearing their knitted sweaters, scarves, and where brown leaves cover the sidewalks. I could smell the change in the air, feel its presence in the cold autumn air, see the changes in all the people I meet, and taste the sweet bitterness of the shedding of the old in preparation for winter. Autumn has always been beautiful. It is when the trees shed away their leaves and they do it in a romantic, beautiful and artistic way. It is beautiful the way trees let go of all the things they no longer need even at the cost of their beauty as they look barren, lifeless, and desolate in the winter. They let go without hesitation, remorse and regret.
I want to let go of all the things I no longer need as well. Attachments I have for material things, people, stuff I have created, beliefs, emotions, pain, fears and experiences, I want to let go of all things that no longer serve me. I want to see the world in a new, fresh and different way. I want to always change, always feel freedom, always feel love, and I want to be free of anything that chains me or prevents me from flying. I want to live my life the way trees live theirs. I just want to live as I am, free of judgment, free of worries, free to become whoever I choose to be, love whoever my heart desires, and to be free to just be me.
