I can't quite tell if Autumn is a truly underrated season, or if in fact, it is rated quite perfectly. It's filled with post-Summer disappointment, questionable weather, and the never-ending wait for Winter. It's soggy socks after a run, and umbrellas that blow away in the wind. It's too warm to light the fire, but too cold to leave the house without a jacket. Transition is always strangely uncomfortable. It's so easy to get caught up in all the anxieties that come with it, rather than just embracing the moment. Autumn can seem like the worst, but it's the best too. It's leaves falling from the trees, hot chocolate in the evening, your favourite woolly jumpers and fluffy socks, crisp air in the morning and cosy nights in. 

I think I'm becoming more comfortable with transitions, however uncomfortable they might be. Almost everything changes all the time. Whether that's seasons, jobs, people, places or everything in between. Knowing that nothing in life is ever static is scary, but also mildly comforting. Whatever you're feeling now will pass, just like it has before, regardless of whether it's good, bad or indifferent, just like the seasons. For every cold and lonely Winter, there's a warm exciting Summer. And for all the leaves that fall from the trees in Autumn, their replacements will be back again in Spring. 

Since finishing college, life seems to be moving at a faster than average pace. I'm never exactly sure of what I'm doing, if I'm making the right decisions or what direction I'm trying to take my life in. Sometimes it seems like everyone has everything together except for you. Like everyone has some sort of five-year masterplan, carefully mapped, detailing the intricacies of life, and how to curate the perfect lifestyle. But regardless of plans, life is never going to be perfect, and that's okay. Everything changes. I think learning to adapt to these changes helps us learn to be happy with every Autumn that inevitably comes around.
