Before me is a blank page and a cup of Yogi tea. This is a rainy, cool fall day. It’s relatively quiet. All I hear is the faint sound of an occasional car passing, humming of the refrigerator and falling of rain on the roof above. The shift of seasons from the warmth of summer to the chill of fall has brought about more than covering my toes with socks and boots. The change makes me well aware that my thoughts are shifting too. It’s my cue to reset, regroup and dream.
The possibilities of what can be accomplished in the next few months are endless. I suppose that could be intimidating, but instead I choose to let it excite me. I’m mindful that there are many choices and options, but I’m not feeling rushed to figure things out. This is my time for examining where I am. How is my life balance going? Is there too much of one thing (eating chocolate) and not enough of something else (exercising)? Is there anything I desire more of like dancing, writing or time with family and friends? What big goals do I want to set for the coming months?
I definitely don’t have all the answers yet. First, I’m working on asking the questions. Then I’ll discover the answers that are right for me.
One of the things I love so much about living on the east coast is that the change of seasons gives me a gentle nudge to rethink and re-evaluate. You might be living in a part of the world where there isn’t this dramatic shift in nature to remind you. Even if that’s so, I encourage you to take the time to stop, think and dream about what is possible. Then take your next small step in the direction of your choosing.
What are the possibilities you have before you?
