There's beauty in every season. "I've learned that everything in life has its seasons and its micro life-cycles — our moods, our emotions, our relationships, our careers. Everything is constantly moving and evolving. Accepting that has helped me; it's made the more challenging times in my life a little easier to understand, and I'm more open to change and surprise. I think back to being 21, and I think I'd tell myself: you may feel like shit now, but it's okay. That's part of the process. Nothing is forever — there's another season just around the bend. We all operate according to our own timing. I understand now that we need to experience the harder things and be patient and trusting when it comes to getting to whatever's next. Winter has its purpose — the freeze needs to happen for the plants to bloom in the spring."
