What’s next?

Here’s the good news, the answer to the question ‘what’s next’ is currently in you.

Have you noticed the trees recently?

The leaves are beautifully falling away right now, but where would you expect to find the next ones that are waiting to replace them?

On the inside.

Though outwardly we’re wasting away and losing our leaves, yet inwardly we’re being renewed and prepping for the next bloom.

So may you rake your leaves and be grateful for their role in this last season.

Just don’t keep trying to glue them back on.

November, December. Gratitude to Joy.

Over the weekend I started a 61 day journey through November and December with real-time reflections on the beauty that is held in these two months.

I would love to have you join me on Instagram by clicking here.

PS – Let The Music Play Blog turned four years old today. If you’re still here, this party is just getting started.

Happy birthday, LTMP. You are not mine, but I am yours.

Autumn – By Ashton Gustafson

Ego of the trees burning away,

green to gold to bourbon fade.

Night stays long – the candle’s friend,

a majestic unwind curls spring’s next grin.

So now we may waltz with what sheds in the fall

for there’s no other way to rise through it all.

Grounded  in love and making room for the bloom,

Autumn, the first verse of what’s ‘to be continued’.
