Of all the seasons, fall feels like the time of greatest transformation to me. There’s nothing subtle or slow about the transitions of fall. New colors. Less light. Colder temperatures. Bare trees. It seems to happen just like that: Boom, fall presents itself.
For whatever reason, fall also makes me turn inward more than the other seasons. perhaps my physical body is ready to take a break from everything it endured during the summer and the spirit is ready to take over. Currently I’m ready to settle in, feed the soul and nurture the creative spirit for a while. And I found these seven “rules for living” that seemed to be a good place to start the journey inward:
1. Make peace with your past
so it won’t disturb your present.
2. What other people think about you
is none of your business.
3. Time heals almost everything.
Give it time.
4. No one is in charge of your happiness.
5. Don’t compare your life to others
and don’t judge them. You have no idea what their journey is about.
6. Stop thinking too much.
It’s alright not to know the answers.
They will come to you when you least expect it.
You don’t own all the problems in the world.
