Create a New Story
The fall season brings with it a wonderful refreshing new way of looking at things. Can you feel the breezes becoming fresher and crisper? Can you smell the scents of musty earth in the air. The leaves are turning... it almost seems as if nature is speaking to you in all of her subtle ways. It is time to take inventory of your life and just as nature purges herself of the old now, so it is time for you to do the same. Take a good look at every aspect of your life right now and make a list of what is not nurturing to who you are any longer; emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually? Once you have pin pointed all of the things and situations that cause you to be imbalanced in your life you need to start...
eliminating them one by one. But it goes even beyond that. I want you to start replacing the old and negative with the new and positive. Write a new story! Come up with another list of things that you love and that make your heart sing. Start introducing these positive changes little by little each day and slowly but surely will your life become a more happy, fulfilled and balanced one. That is what the energy of fall teaches us. In the winter time you will retreat into your cocoon and start formulating new ideas, dreams and aspirations and come spring you are ready to blossom and take action. While you go through this process it is also important to exercise compassion. We all have these unsavory aspects or habits that we would rather forget or avoid, but challenge yourself to honor that in you because that is what will help you release it in the end. Allow yourself to be in a compassionate place when working on yourself. Ultimately you will embody that beautiful and creative expression of self, whatever that may look like for you individually. Happy Creating!
P.s. What are the changes you are making right now? Feel free to share your story, I would love to hear from you. ;-)
