When was the last time you looked through childhood pictures? It can be a strange experience to see yourself in your much younger self: your hair is shorter and darker now, your face a bit less round, but that mischievous grin and some fierceness in the eyes haven’t changed a bit.
The same goes for the rest of us: our personality, quirks, preferences, and habits. Some change, the others stay the same. But who we’ve been doesn’t determine who we will be. The gift of being human is the agency we have to shape who we will become.
Autumn reminds us that change can be beautiful. And you have the power to create powerful change.
