When you rise to the challenges that come along instead of complaining, when summer finally comes round in the next year, you'll have a smile on your face knowing that you deserve the break to recharge given how much you're able to accomplish.

Autumn brings with it a different vibe that is also worth loving. Consider the chilly nights by a fireplace drinking hot chocolate, or the walks to and from work as you watch the leave change colors. People like different things about this time of year; find out what you love about it and capitalize on it, instead of only looking back at what the previous season had to offer. If there is an aspect you don't like, take active steps toward resolving those issues. If that is not possible then perhaps it is time to make peace with what you cannot change.
