Autumn is Approaching - Take Rest!
As autumn is approaching it is a time to remember that all good things need rest and regeneration. The earth must do this in order to have a bountiful crop the next year. If it never rested, then eventually it would wear out. Does that sound like you? Pushing to the limit and never resting then wondering why you are not productive. Maybe taking some time to regenerate would prove to be fruitful for you.
I haven’t always viewed the fall season in such a forward focused way. I actually spent most of my life with a much different perspective. I always hated that I was born in the fall. The leaves were falling off the trees, grass was dying and the earth seemed to be shedding its beauty. Then my perspective began to change. I started to see the fall as a perfect time to let go of the things I had been carrying with me. I could slough off what was weighing me down and look for rest in order to regenerate a new beginning. It is amazing how when you take time for yourself, you can find more time and energy to be productive in other areas of your life.
Often when we struggle with disappointments in life, we come to a point that in order to move on, we have to let go. We have to let the old thoughts or disappointments go in order to generate a new future for ourselves.
So whether you’re thinking you need to change old habits and start fresh or let go of life’s disappointments, don’t wait for a new year to resolve to change. I challenge you to use this autumn season to lose the old habits and start anew, to let go of old failures and disappointments and create a new future for yourself. Get rid of what’s causing your inner “plant” to die and get prepared for a new season of hopes to come. Take rest and be ready to be even more bountiful then you might have imagined.
