What fall is telling me today

Uncategorized Oct 18, 2021

What I wanted to write about today is particularly timely for me personally.  

The last few days I have been feeling run down, like I need to tap out and retreat a little bit.  It feels like I need to cease with all the outward-facing energy and efforts I've been engaging in, and recommit to the inward-facing work that is so important and restorative.  I also know that if I don't choose to take heed and listen to what my body is saying to me right now, my body will make me listen before too long. :) 

It's perfect timing, because what I'm living through right now is exactly the Reminder that fall offers to us.  The way we approach this time of year is important in our own cycles.  We all have a periodic "fall".  But that doesn't mean we are weak or failing or losing steam - it means that we are given the deliberate opportunity to take a beat and go inside to listen and prepare for what's to come.  

The fall is still a very active time, just not in ways we can easily see.  Nature is gearing up by letting things go and focusing on getting the reserves full.  In life, we can practice saying "no" and build in wiggle room in your life to feel your feelings - to listen to your body, and take much-needed preparation or break time. Ultimately, this is a really important time of activity.  After all, without preparation like this, we won't be able to have a healthy winter, a vibrant spring and a joyful summer. 

It's all part of a natural cycle that we should listen to.  Each period of time has something really special to offer that should be embraced.  

As for me, I'm going to make a cup of tea and stop writing here for the day. :)  What is your body telling you to do?
