There is truly something magical about Autumn in New York, isn’t there? It’s peak season here now and the leaves on the trees are just bursting with color … change is in the air – you can just smell it!
Autumn is by far is my most favorite season! Mostly because I am very visual. I love photography and for the last month, my camera has been consistently draped around my neck! I am astonished at how trees I have passed by every morning for the last six months, have slowly transformed into vibrant masterpieces of color that demand your attention. I cannot imagine living in a city where I could not witness such a brilliant, stimulating display!
I celebrated my birthday in New York City and it was a perfect combination of gorgeous blue sky and warm, crisp temperatures! Walking through the Farmer’s Market in Union Square, taking a horse-drawn carriage ride in Central Park and riding the Staten Island Ferry at night – all made this passing of another year incredibly special.
October represents change, a transformation process. We see it in the leaves on the trees. And just as quick as they change, they fall to the ground and the trees are barren. I usually assess on my birthday where I have been in the last year (physically, emotionally and spiritually) and where I think I should be going. Some years, there’s been a lot of questions and unknowns. This year feels more certain, I have a plan and confidently know how to execute it. I always try to step a little more out of my comfort zone and do something different, give a little more to those in need and open my heart to love a little deeper.
I’ve decided this year is the Year of the Dance! I’ve gotten back into belly dancing, which I love, and have met some phenomenal dancers who are very groovy ~ I am an eager student! Emotionally, the breaks in my heart have healed over more in the last year…and that progress “feels” good. And spiritually, I have never felt more in line with fulfilling my purpose in life than ever before through The Clean Slate Diaries.
Here in New York, change is everywhere. My life is being transformed every day and I embrace it. Just like the leaves that have stepped out of the shadows and boldly shown their true colors ~ I comfortably release the grip from the branch, let go and float softly to the next resting place on the journey.
Love & Peace ~
