Seasons of Life

 I love the idea of “seasons of life.”  This concept was introduced to me by Jon Acuff, and it totally resonates with me about how life really works.  Life is not “pedal to the metal” all of the time.  I love the term “hustle,” but you can’t live your life in forever hustle mode.  In reality, though, life is also not just “sitting on a beach with a drink in my hand” in perpetuity either. It’s a shame…but it’s true.  Life comes in seasons. Some of seasons are easy to recognize.  They are almost more phases of life.  There is parenthood, or work, or school.  Sure.  But I think “season” can be even more finite. *They might be newborn baby season or puppy season (we know this all too well at our house now).   *Starting a new business (at least the launch) can be a season. *Losing a job could be a season.  Or job hunting could be one as well. *Having a high school senior is certainly a season we are living through too.   Regardless, it’s important to note that these are finite.  Whether good or bad, a season is not forever.  The wind will blow, and the words “this too shall pass” will ring through your ear. Don’t worry.  It’s just a season. Make sure you never miss an update!  Sign up for our VIP newsletter here.
