‘It’s A New Season it’s A New Day’

A new page has been turned, just as autumn colours mark the end of summer, and bare trees signal the beginning of winter, so was the snapping of the Lord Chamberlain’s rod marking the end of his season and service to the late Queen Elizabeth II at her funeral on September 19th 2022. 

But, in our own personal lives, how do we recognise the end of a season and the beginning of a new one. Some things are more evident than others, for instance the birth of a baby is the end of the pregnancy, and the death of a loved one ends the relationship you once had. However, some things are still so subtle and unless we recognise the signs we can remain stuck in a cycle and life continues on a hamster’s wheel.  Many times it’s not until we feel deep physical, spiritual or emotional pain that we recognise that the season is finished. 

Recently I encountered a situation where I genuinely believed that the reconciliation of a family relationship was on the cards. I was so excited when the lines of communication were opened and there was mutual dialogue with understanding. My heart was overjoyed at the notion that a new relationship was being resurrected out of the ashes of the old. A new season had begun where we’d be stronger together than ever before, only to find out the individual in question was looking for a way to remain disagreeable, it dawned on me that the season was over.

Thank God He opened my eyes to see that this person was not really for me. They wanted me to cower and bow down to their tantrums and whims, which I refused to do. Upon seeing their antisocial ways I decided to quietly remove myself from the relationship. This person had an argumentative spirit and relished toxic speech. No amount of reasoning would persuade them that their repulsive mannerisms and way of speaking was acceptable. Without any  argument, fuss and drama I quietly stepped away, a new season was waiting for me… 

Have a look into the cupboards of your life and ask yourself some serious questions like, is this situation/relationship strengthening or wearing me? What lessons am I learning here? Are those lessons for others and my benefit or is it a matter of codependency that is self-serving? 

The greater things in life are always ahead of you and not behind. I’ve never seen any mode of transport drive backwards to get to its destination. Do I miss the person who I thought was coming back into my life? Of course I do, but a new season has arrived, which I’ve embraced and I encourage you to do the same, you will feel great and not regret it!  

So until next time, remember you are beautiful and wonderfully made – With love Amanda x
