Twice a year we experience the equinox. The natural balance day equals night. It is a good time to look at our own balance. I’ve made an effort today to take action in several areas of my life to enhance my balance (home care, learning the Nia choreography, self care, fun, family, creative work, time in nature and prayer not necessarily in that order) Are you feeling balanced today?
As the season turns to fall, we begin to turn inward and start to spend more time indoors. Time to harvest what we have grown / nurtured / created… during the spring and summer and shelter things too fragile to stay outside through the cold. We begin to look towards Winter’s dark. What will you harvest / gather/ preserve… to see you thru the winter? I’m gathering the usual herbs and veggies from the garden… there are pumpkins turning orange out there… the continuing rewards of taking persistent small steps towards a healthier me… the growth and knowledge of Nia white belt training… the love of family and friends (it makes my heart sing to feel that sweet love flowing into me) Fall weather has arrived early this year… the outdoors is 4 to 5 weeks ahead of usual. The weather has been beautiful, cool nights and clear blue skies.
I have plenty of projects to keep me busy this winter. How about you?
