the transistion into autumn is always a little hard for me. the hazy, lazy days of summer seem so long ago now.
for the last 3 weeks i have been overwhelmed by exhaustion which is now thankfully passing. the shift in seasons affects me deeply and the start of my teaching term is always very busy which opposes my natural inclination at this time of nesting and retreat.
i have been taking some time to check in on my health, to harvest, prepare and eat nourishing foods and to find space for contemplation and silence. my energy is now returning and i am loving the glorious colours of the falling leaves.
on a recent walk, i was struck at how many different shapes and sizes of leaves i saw. this seems to refect all of us.. so varied, so different but all so beautiful and each with a place in the world to be and to shine.
autumns changing colours also remind me of natural life cycles and that change is integral to all. change is moving through and also renewal. it can be scary so often needs a the supporting hand of courage.
i wish you courage with the changes that are happening in your lives.
p.s. thank you so much for the lovely anniversary wishes xx
