An Autumn Mindset

With the end of summer there always comes a shift in mindset for me, as well as a shift in my physical feelings - which seems exaggerated this year. I've slowed down, f a s t.

I think we are all tired. I don't need to reiterate how much we've all had to deal with over the last year and a half; it doesn't seem to be getting any easier. Restrictions are loose, but sometimes it feels like we're heading into more uncertainty.

For me, this is the perfect time to slow down and look inward. It's the perfect time to re-learn how to rely on myself.

The low sun and the orange light are telling me to hunker down, be inside. It's time to nourish my sense of self, and to remember the importance of self and the power within me. 

It's time to be warm - arms wrapped around self - feeling small, and safe, and calm. I have everything I need.

This season I want to be more intentional. I want to be slower, more steady, more focussed. There is an eagerness to do all of the things while we can, before it's taken away again. But if I'm feeling burned out before even starting, it's safer to stay small.

I want to be more vulnerable and honest with myself, and therefore others. To truly understand others and to be understood requires authenticity. I want to have the hard conversations, and to try my best to voice my feelings. I want to know where I am.

When I start to lose my sense of self, I want to remember the words tattooed on my thigh - ME FIRST.

I want to sit in quiet hope that things will be ok.

Steady, safe, consistent. Relying on me, for me.

Telling myself, "I'll keep loving you, even when you're too tired to."
