Sometimes I play a little game where I pretend I’m an alien (Princess) that has just landed on this planet. To an alien (royalty or not), everything we believe is normal and natural might appear new and strange…and even a bit scary.
 
Earth’s autumn brings a lot of change in so many parts of the world and as many trees change color and eventually lose their leaves, an alien might become very alarmed. “Oh no!” she might think, “All the trees are dying! There isn’t going to be enough oxygen for these Earthlings to breathe! And the animals will have nothing to eat! Earth is doomed!”
 
Okay, you might think this little exercise is silly at best but think about how we see our lives, particularly when there are a lot of changes–when our life loses its leaves?
 
My life has been going through its own autumn…again. As it does, I try to consciously remember that the old leaves must fall off in order to prepare for new growth and that I don’t have to panic. I have been through this too many times in my life now that it’s not so alien anymore, albeit still not all that comfortable. For me it just means it’s time to listen within more, rest more, and most of all, trust that nothing has gone terribly wrong.
 
I know that a new season will eventually sprout new ideas. Ideas and things that probably aren’t even in my imagination yet. Things that will surprise me, and fill me with passion and joy once again.

I wrestle with my problems until I see them as opportunities to go deeper. I then use them to fuel my plunge into depths that leave me filled with gratitude for every tear. Sometimes this seems to happen quickly and sometimes it takes years. What matters is the direction and not the speed we travel. xo

I love boot weather! This is my favorite time of year–well it will be when the temps drop a little. There’s something about the crisp air, the colors and the promise of the coming holiday season that gets me all giddy inside! Most peeps hibernate in the winter. I hibernate in the summer. Oopsie.
 
All this aside, like many of you I have been through many challenges in life (some of which I am still experiencing). Even in the midst of them, I try to look for things I love and appreciate; I try to continue to express beauty, joy and creativity in some way.
 
As much as I love boots (and I do love them) this post is more about expressing the beauty, joy and creativity within each of us even in life’s storms. xo
