Fall si about falling leaves, shorter days and colder nights – these all are the signs of a new change in the eternal circle of nature. This time of the year with its charming melancholic beauty always inspired us to reflect on these changes and made us feel closer to nature. From the other side September is still so brillaint and warm, full of nice colors and sunny weather: the bright blue sky, the yellow sun, the amazing tan of our skin and the chance to still wear our summer wardrobe and pieces. September is right in the middle, taking us slowly and gently from one season to another, giving us the chance to grow, change, reflect and become a better person.
Similarly to nature that follows its seasonal patterns, we face constant changes in our lives. If you are having a hard time, remind yourself that difficulties will pass, opening the path for new opportunities, just like rainy fall and long cold winter will be followed by a new breath of life in spring. Cheerful summer is left behind, and the calendar year is slowly moving towards its end. It’s a great opportunity to take a look at the past months and summarize your achievements in all aspects of life. This can help you set priorities and inspire you to make changes that will bring you one step closer to achieving your goals and fulfilling your life purpose.
While fall may seem a season of decay, it is actually a good time to sum up the results, set new goals and start something new. With the days getting shorter and the weather bringing the first hints of winter, most people prefer staying at home. This is great news for introverts – now you can take a walk in a quiet park, and no one will interrupt your thoughts with their loud talking and laughing. Or enjoy the comfort of your home, listening to the calming, almost hypnotizing sound of raindrops. After all, “it is not happy people who are thankful; it is thankful people who are happy,” don’t you think?
We can all agree that this is a fall like no other. So far, the stress surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic has infiltrated the warm months. But even though most events were cancelled this summer, many of us still held onto a “go, go, go” mentality. “Am I soaking up enough sunshine? Taking advantage of these balmy days? Isn’t there something I’m supposed to be doing?” As the leaves fall from trees, plants go dormant, and animals start to prep for hibernation, we should feel inspired to slow down, too — way down. There are few better ways to combat stress than by slowing our pace. Coronavirus or not, autumn beckons us to engage in more rest. View the beauty that’s around us. And take the time to do the things that nourish us, inside and out.
