September 11, 2020

I think I used to love september so much because it meant I could hide myself again. sweatshirts & sweatpants, hoodies & hats. september meant safety. it was like I could breathe again. like I was handed a 9 month get out of jail free card. no more bathing suit anxiety. no more guilt over what I ate and how many calories I burned in my workout. september was my saving grace — for all the wrong reasons.

what I now love about september has nothing to do with my appearance, my self worth or the opinions of others. what I love about september is the feeling in my bones that things are falling into place. the autumn equinox is approaching & with it comes a whole new energy.

fall is the time of year to rebalance, restore & refocus your energy. the equinox means there is an equal amount of light and dark in our day — it’s all about balance. the fall invites us to pause & reflect on where we put our energy the last 9 months, pushing us to make room for what’s to come. this is a time of simultaneous bounty & withering. it’s time to harvest our crops & reap the benefits of seeds planted long ago — while shedding what no longer serves us.

here’s to embracing this natural cycle, just as nature does — knowing we are in the rhythm of growth & love.
