There is a saying that there is a season for everything. All things are done for a reason. Nothing in life is constant. In some countries there are 4 distinct seasons, summer, fall, winter and spring.
Some countries only have one season but there are different weather patterns for example , In a tropical country there would be a rainy season and a dry one. You get the point of what I am saying.
Just as how there are seasons of the atmosphere so it is that there are different seasons in your life. It is important that we realize that nothing in life is constant and your life will change through out its course. One must be prepared for the different seasons through out your life's journey. If planned correctly, then you will be able to move through each life's season embracing all life has to offer.
Here are the four seasons of our life:
Spring: This is our birth where we come into this world and everything is new. There is a sense of joy as we are welcomed into a family. This is the early years of our life where we are fascinated by everything around us. We want to explore the world we are in and we approach the world with a sense of innocence. During this period of your life you are trusting of everyone, and the world through your eyes is all good. the spring of your life is seen in simple terms.
Summer: This period of your life is in your late teens rolling into your twenties and early thirties. This is where you find independence and it is supposedly the tropical period of your life as in this season you venture out leaving family in search of an identity and excitement. The summer season of your life can be exhilarating. Some people will pursue careers or some persons may get married, but the possibilities are endless. It is a time to network and form last long friendships and alliances. It is a beautiful phrase in your life that should not be ignored or wasted.
During your summer you are still trying to figure out your identity, who you are or where you want to go and this is perfectly normal.
Fall: The Fall of your life is from the late thirties to the fifties. This is the period of your life where for many they have experience many highs or lows. Some persons may have been divorced, some may have grown kids and are experiencing empty nests because the kids have moved out. In some case many persons develop ailments during this season of their life. For some people they may find a newness to life and may start over by pursuing new career or relationships.
But for others pending on their mindset this season can become one of stagnant complacency, as they feel too old to pursue dreams, or they may just feel useless or demotivated. For many people in the season of fall they become stuck in a rut that they refuse to get out of.
Winter: This season is the final leg of your life from your 60s onward. Some people may retire and become sedentary, while some persons may even start another career or continue to work. Many persons by now have grand children. Pending on how you have lived and prepared in the other seasons winter can be simple satisfying.
But it can also be hard for many persons if there are ailments or poor finances. It can be one of constant ailments, and for some people pending on your mindset they worry about the final days of their life. The winter period of your life was meant for reflection and for looking back at your legacy and family. For some there will be a sense of fulfilment for others there may be regret. Whatever your thoughts are the fact is that the winter season of your life is your final destination whether you like it or not.
Boyz to men one of my favourite r and b group have a song name seasons change. The simple truth is we all have 4 seasons throughout our life should we live to a certain age, and even then there will always be seasons in our lives. Some days will be winter, other times it will be summer. It all depends on how you handle your seasons and how you prepare ahead.
Life is simple and there is no reason to fear what is ahead. Like natural season you plan ahead. You do not wear summer clothes during winter, Nor would you dress for winter during the summer. Embrace the seasons in your life and plan accordingly.
There is no need to fear the seasons that we will come across throughout our life because it is inevitable. Enjoy your springs, soak up your summers, celebrate your falls, and absolutely adore your winters. And most of all be good to you

I believe in living life in a simple yet fulfilling stratosphere. Simple doesn't mean denying yourself of all the great things that life has to offer. Life was meant to be lived on your own terms and not on someone else's. It is about you.
