September and October to me are months of transformation.
It's the time where life changes. Your Baby starts to go to Kindergarten, making it´s first steps in the world without you. School starts, your child begins its journey to the serious sides of life. The older kids start to study or work, moving away from home. Conquering the world by themselves.
Most of the days are still warm and sunny, but as soon as it gets dark, it's getting cold. Time for a bowl of soup or a cup of hot chocolate. For me it's suddenly time to dig for my wool stash and the needles. I only knit during the cold seasons. After one or two colder nights I put my second blankett on my bed, as I hate to freeze during the night.
The September full moon is also called “The Harvest Moon”, it stands for bringing in the crops of all the works you did during the last year. From internal and external work. To be grateful for mother nature and show appreciation to her gifts by offering some food for animals under a tree.
You are asked to have a view inside, to see and recognize your own transformations. To appreciate where you came from and where you are now.
And it's time to celebrate. Celebrate the work that was done, successes you achieved, and the journey you´re still on.
We are not yet in the silent winter time, but it's close. The nights are getting longer.For farmers it's the last big workload on the fields, before winter stops it all. Sometimes, at night you can almost smell the snow. The wind can be icy cold, short before the sunrise, only a few hours before your out in short sleeves, enjoying the Indian Summer sun on your bare arms. A time of extremes, a last outburst of summer energies. People want to be outside, enjoy their freedom, before the restrictions may come back.
And I'm bringing in my own crops, my harvest from the last months. I´m back to a full time office job, after a longer period of unemployment. I refined and extended my art skills, as I was forced to find new ways to express myself because of a lack of painting supplies. So now I have started to draw more and create digital art. And it is a lot of fun. I decluttered my apartement a bit, which is really hard for me.
And in general I´ve become much more aware about my present. I learned to focus more at the moment than always trying to imagine all eventualities of what may lay ahead. My intentions for this winter is to practice this even more. Being in the moment, realizing what I have instead of feeling a lack or counting the things I miss. To count my blessings and really, consciously being grateful.
And I have a lot to be grateful for: Wonderful grandkids, loving daughters with their wonderful husbands, a job that's not annoying or overly exhausting (so I still have energy for my art), I succeeded in healing my body, my finances finally start to balance, awesome friends. I´m in the best place that I´ve been for a very long time.
So I will continue to leave my home office after work for a walk and spoil myself with a Cappuccino or a Mango-ice-cream outside a cafe as long as I can. And I´m looking forward to the markets we have during the winter, where you can buy hot chestnuts and hot fruit punch. For my youngest grandson it will be the first winter he really experiences, as he´s 2 years now. So this fall and winter will be a string of pearls of smaller and bigger positive events.
I invite you to bring in your own crop. What did you harvest? What was your transition?
Make some plans on how to enjoy and live fall and winter.
Enjoy your life!
See you next month !!
