Yep, it is the first of November and the feeling of fall arrived sometime last week (for me).
And it was like I all of a sudden got into the “restorative-contemplating-mode”, and most of the time I like it.
You know, in the fall and winter nature takes time to rest, reset and get ready for new things to come in the spring.
Same with us humans, we have a possibility to rest more, maybe dö a little less when it’s darker and colder. In the business world it’s not always set up in that way – a lot of times people and companies need to finish business and projects before the end of the year.
For me, now, it’s clearly that I take my time getting ready in the morning, I get out less than in the summer time, and I want to come inside at night to cook, slow down, play and read with Louise, have tea with Anders and relax when possible.
So, I welcome this time of doing a little less (as far as it goes with a baby in the family), and try and rest in the knowledge of that it is the way nature is set up for us.
Also, by having time to think, reset and plan this time of the year, we can be ready for the new energy and light that comes with spring time.
Then at times I totally miss summer, and am worried this winter will be too dark to enjoy. But then again, that is worrying about the future rather than being present. So I try and stay in the moment and enjoy the slowing down.
