Sometimes you find validation in the oddest places.
Remember last week I was prattling on about autumn being a time of assessment and change for me? No, well then go back and read if you like.
Anyway, on Sunday I found myself on top of Primrose Hill watching a Druid ceremony welcoming the first day of fall. One of the speakers said that autumn was the seventh part of a cycle of change. It's the time to harvest what's grown over the summer, decide to keep what you want, and let the rest go its own way (whether that be to the bin, to seed, or to lie fallow to fertilize something else).
Hmm ... so the Druids agree. Now's as good as time as any to decide what it means for our lives to be balanced according to our needs at this particular time. What's unbalanced for me might be perfectly balanced for someone else. And what's balanced for us this autumn might not make us feel balanced next year, or even next season.
So why not check in with yourself and see what it is you need to feel balanced for the next few weeks/months/seasons?
And to all those people who say I'm unbalanced ... well, it's just a matter of perspective, innit?
