    'I often sit and watch the leaves change colour and fall from the tree. To me, those leaves signify the constant change in our own lives and all the beautiful colours signify our own emotions. As the leaves, change and fall from the tree with such grace and gentleness, they're reminding us to be gentle with ourselves as this chapter ends and the next journey begins in our lives.'
