Your Life Your Way Podcast

Style, Seasons and Change

Happy day, reader dear!

How’s your new season going?

Do you struggle with the changes the seasons bring?

Or embrace them?

How about the seasons in your life?

What was the song?

Turn, Turn, Turn.

By the Byrds. Based on Eccesiastes Chapter 3. Probably one of few times scripture hit the pop charts!

Which sent me down the rabbit hole… The song was written by Pete Seeger and recorded in 1959. I remember the Byrds version from my childhood. What harmonies!

It’s interesting to look at our lives as lived in seasons, ever changing and in some ways repeating, one bleeding gradually into the next. (Gradually, not necessarily gracefully.) I’m thankful for the perspective seasons give me.

Like enjoying summer activities in the summer rather than rueing the fact that I can’t make a snowman. Enjoying the fire and cocoa in winter even more because I know the season is short.

This, too, shall pass. Enjoy what is here and now.

I’ve been blessed to meet so many amazing women in this life season! Kathleen McDermott is one. She’s the dynamic and yet chill hoot (An unusual combo, for sure!) who started the Your Life Your Way podcast. She invited me to a chat that turned into an unburdening and reflection of the season in which I am (and she is) living. The entrepreneur season. The caring-for-parent season. The grandma season. The rediscover myself season. Maybe you are there, too?

Have a listen! Kathleen is a generous host who asks great questions. It was a treat to speak with her! Maybe I should say ramble? Kathleen is also a fabulous listener!

How About You?

In what season of life are you? Can you give it a name? Do you embrace seasonal change or struggle with it? Let me know if you enjoyed the podcast! I’d love to share that information with Kathleen. What podcasts do you recommend? My ears are always looking for good listening on my walks! Please share… I love to hear from you and there’s plenty of space in the comments below! XO

Stylishly yours,

    No wonder some of my earlier comments have confused you! I love having 4 seasons and always treasure the one I am in. So fun to wear different clothing throughout the year. My favorite is Autumn, and at 68, that would be my season of life. The season of my mind and heart, however, is Spring. I love every little thing even more than I did as a child. I’m a girl in a vintage body, who loves dressing up. Best from Kathleen McDermott in NJ, not to be confused with KM of YLYW!

      I love your phrasing, Kathleen: “a girl in a vintage body”! That’s it! I, too, am so much more appreciative of the gifts and blessings now than I was even 10 years ago.
