It’s that time of year…when the leaves are a rich dark green and we are on the cusp of change but we’re not quite there yet.
Last weekend I went on a ride through the park and was just hit by the heaviness of the world around me, the dark, rich green of the trees surrounding me as I rode past them. I saw very little color in the leaves as I rode through the park, although by the time this post comes out, there might be a bit more to be seen, but the trees were heavy with the final weeks of leaves, with the last gasp of the season.
The seasons have officially changed from summer to fall, the air has gotten a bit crispier in the mornings, and we are on the cusp of that change in the world around us, but we’re not quite there yet. It’s almost like we’re in a bit of a pause before the next phase.
For some that pause, that anticipation, might feel like a welcome relief…and for others there might be a space of sadness in anticipation of the next phase. Whatever you’re feeling in that space of anticipation, I hope you can give yourself permission to feel your own feelings, to breathe into the space where you happen to be just a bit more, to notice your own needs.
My dear friends, may we breathe a little deeper during the changes in our lives this week.
I hope you have an amazing week, my friends.
