Autumn is a time of renewal and refreshment, little pockets full of the season’s treasures: fat acorns, conkers, and fiery, fallen leaves. After the hurried, frenzied pace of summer, where the focus is ever outward, ever onward, Autumn brings with it a slowed pace and a beginning of the turn to our inward being. Our inner flame begins to shine again, small at first but ever growing as we near Winter. This inward movement is a wonderful time for a rhythm refresh, or to begin the journey towards one if you’ve never had one before. The idea of creating a rhythm can seem daunting at first, but in reality you likely have the bones of a rhythm in place and simply adding structure to it and writing it out will solidify your days tremendously.
We are in the thick of our Spring Rhythm and it feels so good to add some color back to our days. My 2 and 4 year old's have been enjoying helping to clear away a spot for our garden, finding the earth so newly full of life again. We have been reading all the Spring books, mainly checked out from the library.
