New Season – New Opportunities by Carole Langman
Summer days are drawing to a close and soon Autumn will be upon us. The season is marked by the Autumn Equinox, which is the day when the northern hemisphere slightly tilts away from the sun. This will see the start of shorter days and cooler temperatures, which officially marks the transition from summer to the colder months of the year. This is also a key seasonal marker in the Earth’s orbit around the Sun and is the official start to the new season.
Fresh Start and Renewed Goals
There’s something about the start of September, the beginning of a new school year, with Autumn right around the corner, that stirs us all up with excitement for fresh starts and renewed goals. We can give ourselves another chance to get organized, to pursue our dreams and ambitions, and to live with greater hope and intention before the year ends. For many of us, the days seem to be flying by so quickly, how can this year be speeding past with 3/4 of the year nearly over? But take heart, a new season is a great time to start again—to renew our goals with more focus and determination and to make every day count.
A New Season is also a great time for New Opportunities
The start of any new season often brings mixed emotions. Some of us may be experiencing the best year we have ever had. Whilst others may be dealing with one struggle after another, finding it hard just to wait for this year to end. Others may be grieving deep loss or big life changes. Some of us will be looking forward to new careers, fresh changes in life, or an upcoming move perhaps. But whatever your position, wherever you find yourself, a new season is also a great time for new opportunities. A time to take stock, to review your plans and hopes for the year. And to move forward with greater vigour.
Dig deep and renew your promises to yourself
And wherever we find ourselves at the start of the Autumn, it helps us to remember what matters most for us in our lives. Dig deep and renew your promises to yourself. Look within, and make the remaining months of the year matter. There is still time to achieve our hopes and desires, there’s still time to grow and develop in whichever way beckons us.
You could say that the Autumn Equinox marks the start of the transition from summer to winter. After the event, the days will get shorter and the nights get longer, marking the start of darker wintery evenings. The temperature will also being to drop. Autumn brings with it the changing of the leaves, when trees burst into shades of red, orange and brown. A beautiful time of year. So no regrets, no looking back, it is time to look forward and to appreciate where you are, what you have already achieved, and plan ahead for the remaining months of 2019!
