Fall Has Amazing Way of Accentuating Special Possibilities

Over the past few days, I had several outdoor opportunities to appreciate the changing fall landscape. One of my favorite things to do is to walk and take photos while breathing in the fresh air, wooded and water scenes, and scents that surround me.  What I enjoyed most on these walks were the lovely surprises. Each one lifted my spirits and made my heart beat faster. The sightings included the bright purple (yes, purple!) berries and the bush with the half red and half green leaf. Each finding inspired a sense of awe, change, and possibilities.

These ideas relate to my organizing work with clients. There are always discoveries as in lost things that get found. There are possibilities inherent in transforming a cluttered space into one that functions as intended; free from unwanted objects. There is the pursuit of change along with excitement about possibilities. Perhaps one of the results I treasure most is seeing how happy my clients are after we’ve cleared and organized a space. They feel lightness, relief, and hope.

So when I notice a leaf changing color or a serene river landscape that too brings happiness, hope, and an opening for new possibilities. I’d like to share some of my recent sightings with you. I hope the scenes inspire you to create your possibility intentions.

One of the things I love about my job is showing clients the possibilities. Helping my clients create new strategies to get back into routines is what I love best.

It sure is amazing what you see when you take the time to be still and look! You have quite a skill with a camera, Linda. I've never seen the purple berries before, and am always amazed by things like that one bright red leaf surrounded by the green ones. I definitely relate the idea of "lightness" that clients experience after a session. It is such a freeing process. This fall, I am open to the possibility of new directions. We may have momentum on a current course, but if we are unhappy with where we are heading, it is possible to slow down and chart a new one!

This is my favorite time of year. Thank you for sharing what it looks like in your area!

Even though the leaves are dying and the days are getting shorter, I've always seen the fall as a great time for new beginnings. It feels separate from the previous season in a way that January doesn't.

Walking on the trail, we passed over a long bridge. While walking something told me to stop and look at the left side to observe the river. The river stream was so calm that it mirrored a detailed reflection of the sky and trees. While my husband and dog kept walking, I turned to the right and saw the mirror image again, but this time, the waved patterned clouds were transparent in the river as well. I took out my camera and snapped a shot. I realized that we could easily miss the beautifulness around us when we don't look up away from our devices. Life is too short for the mundane. We need to look beyond to have a more fulfilling life.

@Diane- It's beautiful that you love the possibilities piece with the client work that you do. Having that other pair of eyes on challenges is helpful. When we're close to something, it's hard at times to imagine options. What an asset you are to your clients!

@Seana- Thank you so much. If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I might have thought the purple berries were Photoshopped. What a color! I love finding these visual treasures, and it sounds like you do too. I'm excited to hear about your fall possibilities. Will you be blogging about it? I'm excited for you!

@Janet- This is one of the most colorful seasons of the year. Since you're north of us, I'm guessing that your fall is already in full swing, even more than in New York. I do love this time of the year too, the early fall. However as the leaves begin to die, the days shorten, and the temperatures rise, that's my least favorite part. But I work on finding beauty and feeling gratitude where it is.

October 15, 2018 | Registered CommenterLinda Samuels

@Sabrina- Ahh. Thank you for sharing that moment of mindfulness. What a beautiful image chose to notice and share. Something is calming and captivating about water. I love how the quality of the rivers change depending on the tides, the sky, and the temperatures. Some days the river is brown with wild water. Other times, it's calm and reflects the blue sky and white fluffy clouds. It's changeable like us.

Fall has just arrived here as cooler weather! It's brings more possibilties for us all!

October 16, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterEllen Delap

@Ellen- It's funny, but the same has happened in New York. The last few days have been cooler. I guess it's that time of year, although it seems like the weather has been changing in the past five years. What we used to expect, we no longer can. And perhaps that's part of what paves the way for possibilities.

Fall colors appeared almost overnight last week, but there hasn't been much dramatic change. Still hoping for an explosion of color before it's all over.

October 17, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterJanet Barclay

@Janet- Magical, isn't it? I'll be wishing too for the "explosion of color." I've noticed here that some leaves seem to be already dead. They went from green to brown and completely passed being yellow, orange, or red.

October 17, 2018 | Registered CommenterLinda Samuels

I'm always inspired by the way trees declutter their old leaves, making room for new ones in the spring. It seems spring will never come, but it always does.

October 20, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterHazel Thornton

@Hazel- The seasons are giving us life lessons all the time if we're willing to look. I love how you've found inspiration and hope in the changing seasons.
