I’ve mentioned before that I like to surround myself with things that have meaning for me whether it’s a painting by my father, my grandmother’s “ear bobs”, or words from scripture or a hymn. This time of year is perfect for a daily reminder for a healthy outlook on life. Letting go of the past can be difficult. Events like a problem in a close relationship, a perceived failure or bad decision, or a really bad experience can disrupt our lives. Lingering feelings of anger, doubt, grief, or guilt can rob of us of happiness.
There are ways to address the lingering effects of past experiences. This may involve practicing self-compassion, trying mindfulness as a way of focusing on the present moment, or talking with a friend or a professional to explore unresolved feelings.
Autumn is here. Slowly the trees change as leaf colors transition to brown. Some of the most colorful leaves are pure joy to view. The tree no longer feeds the leaves until they release them. Many of us love this season. and now it’s time to be a tree. Whatever is lingering in your life and is no longer serving a good purpose, let it go. Be free. You’ll have more energy to grow in the future.
Autumn teaches us the
beauty of letting go.
