The days have cooled down, the leaves are starting to turn color and fall. There’s something wonderful about the clear, crisp days, sweater weather….boots, scarves, soon-to-be-pumpkin everything, and the sounds of geese overhead as they pass through our property on their way south. Even though the season is the precursor to winter it will always be my favorite time of year. I think it is the best of all seasons!
Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
In the fall, I feel like life can slow down a little and I can get focused again on change and growth after all the busyness of summer. Instead of becoming frustrated by the shortening days, and the soon to be rainy days (in the NW), I see it as a sign to slow down, to retreat, to gather, review, to rest get ready for growth. I get so inspired to initiate change in my life – and change anything that is keeping me stuck.
This is my time to look at my journey, and just as the trees let go of their leaves, this is my time to let go as well. I can allow myself the time to rest and capture my thoughts….maybe that is something that you might like to do as well.
Questions I Like To Ask Myself
- What is it time to let go of?
- Where do I need to slow down in my life?
- What new opportunities for growth will I embrace this season?
I encourage you slow down enough to listen to yourself. Whatever changes are calling you this season, honor them.
If it’s your diet: enjoy the bounty of nature’s harvest available in the fall. If it’s your need to move more and get exercise: be grateful that the heat of the summer has died down and it’s easier to be outside and enjoy nature. If you need to rest more: this is the time to start now that the busyness of summer is gone.
Whatever it is, welcome that change into your life. Use this change in seasons to let go of what’s not working and start making some changes that you know are needed to live a healthy balanced life.
