When the Leaves Turn...

We've all heard the saying "People are in your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime." I hold this saying to be true, and know that everyone that I have encountered in my life has been there for a specific purpose. My friends mean the world to me, and those who I no longer consider my "friends", once played a role in my life; whether it was major or minor. There are some that I predicted would be there for a reason and that's all, but the hardest ones to get over...the people that come into your life for a season.

Speaking in terms of a year, there are four seasons. The transition from each season can sometimes occur easily; while there are times that the changes bring us gradual complications or sometimes hit us full force without any notice. In terms of friendships, when the leaves turn, there's a chance that they may turn back - but there's also a possibility of them being replaced with new leaves.

When the leaves are turning - you know it. There's this gut feeling that you're stuck with, but you take it for what it is and live in denial while you still can. When the leaves have turned - you may be heartbroken and confused, or you won't be phased by it. Not because you don't care, but because you saw the changing phase right in front of your eyes and was well prepared to enter into a new season.

Sometimes we have to make special note of the people that are in our lives. Why are they there? Are you beating a dead horse trying to keep a friendship alive? Have you grown so much that you're in a better place and can no longer live in the same season as some of your other friends? There's nothing wrong with that, we just have to take life for what it is, appreciate the memories we had, and look forward to the ones that are to come.

When the leaves turn, make the best of it - and the friends that are there for the lifetime will be with you every step of the way.

    Word. It happens. Some people are just meant to come in our lives, do a job and be out.
