For me, Fall is a time of new beginnings. I don't know if it will always feel this way, but having kids and having school start feels more like the "New Year" than the new year.
There is so much organizing and juggling of schedules that happen for me, but it's a time when there is more routine. And boy have I been wanting that. Craving it really. I have been feeling a little lost and adrift lately. It's funny but others have been telling me that they have felt this way too.
When this happens and other feel the same way, I wonder is there some energetic disturbance, is there something in the air. I know this sounds like hippy dippy baloney, but it is often comforting to know that you are not alone in this felling of something not being quite right.
I had big plans to get organized and get a lot done over the summer, but that never happend. Initially I was bored and didn't have the momentum or focus to stay on a boring task of going through paperwork or doing all the little projects that have been hanging over my head. SO I DIDN'T DO IT.
Then I felt guilty, like what's wrong with me? I'm usually more creative! I'm always get **it done. I didn't even feel like reading.
I just had to sit with that feeling and be ok with not feeling myself. Now that we have a new beginning. This new school year. I have a little more energy. BUT having time to be a bit bored and a bit lazy, maybe helped clear my mind a little. Gave me space to think and feel a little more.
SO now I am looking at my priorities yet again before I set my schedule, so it's conducive to my how my energy is normally and having a balance between work and self-care and family and all the other obligations that come with living.
I hope that you will take this time to review your priorities as well and set boundaries on your schedule and your time so that you are living in a way that works for your body and mind and spirit. (emotionally and energetically).
