I love Fall…I think it is the most beautiful season. I tend to do a lot of reflecting in the Fall – this year is no different.
On the contrary – I am already sensing HUGE shifts in how “I DO” – How “I do” my business, my life, and myself..
This Fall happens to coincide with the Autumn of My Life.
Have you heard of the Seasons of a womans life? They are Maiden, Mother, Goddess and Crone. When you look at them – they coincide with women’s “stages”: from puberty, to childbearing years, to Empty Nest Years, to Golden Years. (This is the linear version. I also believe we have several cycles of seasons in our lifetime.)
What I am experiencing this season, is a release – kinda like trees releasing leaves.
I have lived in my house for 8 years and as a fixed sign I can tell you I hate moving. I never thought I would move again. Recently, however, I got the message loud and clear: “Sell The House”
Now about a year ago, I would’ve rather put needles in my eyes, but Now…I am actually getting anxious about downsizing!
Another Insight: I have outgrown my office. See, my business is mostly webinar (and phone) based now. I have also been renting hotel space for my larger events (that I can’t fit in my office). So – November will be my last month in my Matthews office.
The funny thing?
Selling a 5 bedroom house (with only 2 people living in it) and releasing an office when my business is webinar & phone based is really just plain common sense.
So, why was I holding onto them?
So – what I am sensing for me (all around), is a huge CLEARING. I am not just releasing the stuff (and boy do I have a lot of stuff) but I am also releasing the egoic part of my self that goes with the stuff. Identity baggage.
So I guess I am looking at a whole new “me”…not to mention a whole new place for this version of me to live..
As I prepare for this shift I also observe other “signs” in my life:
- My daughter (who graduates college in December) will move (sniffle)
- My mother (who is ill) will transition sooner rather than later..(Where the hell is my G@% D@&# blankie???)
These 2 events in particular remind me how precious life is, and how little time we have to waste. I am reminded (once again) to not just make every moment count, but every experience too.
And to drop the friggin’ pretenses.
So..I ask you…what is your current season?
