The Soul Coaching group is affirming that we are in harmony with the natural rhythms of life. I remember when I was in college, my mom was researching bio-rhythms. She asked me if I ever noticed that at the end of every year I go through a “funk”. Hmmm…..I hadn’t, but she was absolutely right. The weird thing is that fall is my favorite season. I love watching the trees turn colors and the crispness that comes in the air. I love the need for a fire in the hearth and a warm cup of soup. I love that fall brings football season (even though this season has been a complete bust if you are a fan of any team that plays in the state of Washington!).
My significant other pointed out this morning that I am being very resistant to spending time with family over the holiday. As I considered today’s reading, I had to admit that he was right. I am feeling that fall funk and wanting to control things by being mopey. It’s not a very constructive way of dealing with my funk but it is my default setting. So, I will shake it off and realize that sometimes being in tune with the tides of nature doesn’t always mean submitting to them but respecting, accepting and then choosing action.
I guess that means I’ll be going to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Seattle bright and early on Friday morning with the rest of my family …..yuckcan’t wait!
