It’s starting to feel like fall in more ways than just the turning leaves. Much like the turning of each year, I like to set an intention, as each season changes. I think our bodies move in ways much like the seasons. Spring bring forward new beginnings and the promise of all the goodness Summer has to offer, while Winter brings needed stillness that is always welcomed. Fall prepares us for this coming stillness, and reminds us to let go.
I’m not sure of what you need to let go of.
To me, this season is usually about letting go of my packed schedule. To recharge. To be ok with sitting with myself in the stillness and pressing into the good and holy. To spend more time saying “I’ll be there” than “I already have plans”. To curl on the couch in the stillness of the night, and not be checking off the next task on the to do list. To sit around the table and break bread with good friends – and good wine.
Welcome fall. I’ve missed you.
