Fall will begin today in the Northern hemisphere. Long summer days will switch to cool autumn nights. The trees which have been busy growing will drop their leaves in preparation for dormancy over the winter.
While fall may be a good time for us to mimic nature – in the sense of letting go of what no longer serves us- it can also be a great time to reevaluate our lives and reinvent ourselves in a sense.
What isn’t working?
What have you been clinging to that really needs to change?
What has your heart been begging you to do?
What would bring you profound joy?
It doesn’t have to be anything big or result in a major shift.
Maybe you’ve known for a long time that you want to change your eating habits. Start with one small change. Notice how you feel. If it feels good, keep going! If not, make an adjustment. Keep a journal so you have a record of what works and what doesn’t.
Maybe you are hanging on to the idea of a relationship with someone that you know isn’t right for you. It doesn’t mean there’s a flaw in you or in them. It just means that for some reason, your needs aren’t getting met, and no amount of wishing it to be different is going to change things. It’s always good to see the potential in something, and it’s even better to recognize the reality of a situation. Ask your angels to help you let go.
Maybe you’ve had the urge to create something, to start a new job, to try new things, or to join a group of some sort. These are gentle nudges from The Universe to point us in the direction our soul longs to go and unfortunately we often ignore them due to feelings of inadequacy or unworthiness. We may offer up the excuses of ‘not enough time’, ‘not enough money’, ‘I don’t know how to’, and so on. But that’s the mind talking, and you need to follow your heart.
Maybe a short walk would bring you profound joy. Or a call with a good friend. Or attending a live music event. Perhaps volunteering or helping someone would feel good. Or dancing around your living room. Or curling up with a good book and a glass of wine. Maybe a random act of kindness would bring healing to your soul. The list of options and opportunities to uncover your bliss is really endless.
So, today, I invite you to just think about what you want for your life – in the next day, month, year, and take one tiny action step towards that goal. It won’t happen overnight, but it’ll never happen if you don’t start!
What are you waiting for?! Life gets better by having the courage to change. #huckithuge
