Fall, My Time, Your Time, for Change…Nature’s Time!

Friday, a Fall Friday, and it finds me very melancholy as UTunes plays a Master List which connects me through the years to days that time forgot. But that is ok for I believe the wind of today talks to me, I believe that the leaves are falling and dancing through the air to be shared with the Earth to return as good soil for the future. It is kind of a leaf self -improvement transformation for they always come back in their favorite shades of green and more to witness another year and to transform once again. Time forgets them but they continue their journey. Oh no!

Maybe the human model of self-improvement is all wrong. Just like the leaves, we do not need to attract anything because we are not lacking anything. Our self is already whole. We have it as we emerge into our life. What is happening is that something is trying to get out, and like the leaves we need to strip away the false exterior and reveal what we have inside. Leaves do not try to fix themselves, and we exacerbate our problems when there is nothing wrong with any of us.

And Fall is the time for Nature and for us as a part of Nature to change or bring to the surface what has always been within us. That is why AGELESS WOMEN OF WISDOM is launching in Fall–October 16th to be exact–and women are waiting to emerge, to realize their potential. We are giving life back to ourselves as guides to make our lives what we long for in 2020 and beyond. Like the leaves, it is an opportunity to be free from the past and to set ourselves free for the future. Our perception of emptiness is not really empty, we have to emerge. Like the mighty oak, the acorn is a part that leaves to fulfill their future potential. The mighty oak is always a part of that future!

Oberlin Fall Rebirth Annual…and More AWE!

Simply put, this is the week that Oberlin students–new and returning–descend upon the campus. Returning students have much wisdom to share with the new students. And it is needed! But in the total picture it is amazing to walk Tappan Square to see the Fall Emergence of nature…it is a reminder that everything regenerates, no matter the season. Within a few weeks there will be the shedding of leaves for both nature and the newer students. It is an an AWEsome time to be in Oberlin and everyone joins in…retail, public servants, and nature, the wisest of all!

When You Have Joy…You Have it All!

Fall is spectacular!  I love fall!  The temperatures, usually, are more moderate.  It is my season being a Scorpio!  As I sit here in my home business office, I see beautiful trees glistening in the 72 degree temperatures.  Leaves are beginning to fall.  Everything is happening the way nature intends it to happen.  I am overwhelmed with business matters, but all is good.  And it brings to mind that one of the most important things to maintain to be personally sustainable is to have joy; it frees the mind to feel joy.  It is energizing in the truest sense.  And energy is the foundation of everything!  Build your foundation on finding your joy.  Once you do, it is contagious and moves into all parts of your life, and then it moves on to everyone you are in contact with, it is the truest manifestation of love.  Have a great weekend, and find your joy in every little thing.  Oops, there goes another golden leaf by my window!

And then September began…

Nor is it an excuse…

Yesterday was September 1, and it turned out to be a very productive day in a very different way…I am beginning an invitation-only program to fast track me in a selected area of The Empower Excellence Experience.  It came to me without any request on my part.  That was a door opening to realize that I often do not ask for manifestations that are “big” enough.  This is a big ask that came to me, and I accepted the challenge.  You see, like “being a girl” is never a reason or excuse for anything, as we get older, the reason or excuse that “we are too old” to start something big is never a reason or an excuse for anything!

I guess, with the change of the seasons as Fall approaches, I am finally accepting that I am “older”.  But that is probably as far as it will go.  I am young at heart, younger in appearance than my chronological age, and my fighting spirit that was pushed down in the 1960’s is coming into full bloom.  I am ready for anything and everything within my choosing.

And that is what my move to Oberlin 6 months ago this weekend was all about:  I am choosing a different lifestyle.  I am choosing to combine that lifestyle with an on-line modern day presence in many parts of the reconfigured Empower Excellence into The Empower Excellence Experience.  I want my freedom to do what is my mission and passion:  Personal Sustainability.  Many have traveled this road in many forms:  we want peace and quiet and love to pursue what is ours to do.  And that has nothing to do with being female or being older.  It is the essence of the soul becoming awake!

So, yes, yesterday was September 1, and I worked and I went “into the city” to do necessary banking that cannot be done electronically.  I took two first steps in the accelerated challenge and began to reach goals for that program already.  I crossed off another “to do” because literally I am too old to participate in a financial services program but I can do a better, more sustainable job of the task on my own.  That was confirmed by my insurance agent!  I did what was mine to do, including laundry, brewing gallons of tea for the coming week, and cleaning the floors of my home.  It was nesting in many areas, and it was mine to do.

There was no blog…that was meant to start off the month of September today.  And this is what I offer each and every one of you in this newly arriving season that I love…it is called “Fall” for a reason.  It is time to fall in love with yourself and what is yours to do, no matter how little or big or challenging or not challenging it is.  Fall for the love in your heart, in nature, and in all you do.  This is what I wish for you today on this Labor Day Weekend,and, for many of us, falling is a labor that we sometimes feel it not justified, as we have too many other things to do,  But many times those other things lead to a winter of discontent!
