When rain starts pouring and you start taking out of the closet your favourite sweaters, you remember a little bit about the warm days of summer, soon to be put away in a file of memories alongside your favorite summer dress and that pair of sandals that makes you feel like you can conquer the world.
And as you do that, as you glaze at a new beginning, you start to forget about fun and that „dolce far niente” state of mind, you begin to build yourself up and become stronger and more committed to that plans you made in spring: to give yourself a more important reason to be remembered than just your summer looks.
I kept wondering these days: how many of us actually have the courage to follow their dreams by the book and never stop at anything or anyone until they make it? Are we our own enemies?
When everyone around you keeps telling that you will never make it, that you should be a realistic and face the fact that not everyone in this world can have it all – that is when the Universe`s voice has to be louder that theirs.
When I took this pictures, I was so moved by this tree that is standing tall. I realized how much nature is actually teaching us and why we should listen to it more than to what others have to say.
Because you can study hard and read tons of books, but studying by example has always been the best method.
So start looking around and start learning.
Learn to rise without caring about the other around you. Learn to stand still when wind and storm are coming your way because really they are there just to make you stronger. Learn to never lean in front of the sun – it may be bigger than you are, but that doesn`t make him more powerful.
Last, but not least, learn to be a part of everything else around you. Because even if summer is gone and you will soon start to loose your leaves, it doesn`t mean you are less present.
