Transition, Fresh Start, New: Autumn a Season of Birth
Somewhere along the way, I realized that the new year doesn’t begin for me in January. The new and fresh has always come for me in the Fall. Ironically, as leaves are falling like rain, crunching beneath my feet with finality, I am vibrating with the excitement of birth and new beginnings….
My year begins in Autumn. ~Betsy Cañas Garmon
As you walk along your path this Autumn it is easy to let the beauty and serenity of the season pass you by. It is easy to look ahead to the cold, dark nights of winter, (especially here in Minnesota1) or the dawning of a new year. Yet what could change if our views moved from endings to new beginnings?
Something to consider: If it weren’t for Autumn, new seeds would never fall or have time to blossom into next year’s harvest …
Fall isn’t just about beauty, crisp days or pumpkins – it is time of letting go and sowing for the future.
Before you prepare to head into the colder days of winter or the holiday season; this time, right now, is the perfect time to begin setting the seeds for spring. What action do you need to take right now to make that happen? What do you want your spring to look like – full of life and expansion?
Ah, very good. 🙂 Then now is the time to begin.
Happy New Beginnings to you!
Until next time …
