For your Weekend~

The Bee and the Ant  

The bee said to the ant, “lets have some fun, its the weekend and we deserve it!” They found the nearest picnic, ate lots of food and had fun instead of working all the time. They laid around on the grass watching the clouds go by and realized, “there’s a time for everything in life if we choose wisely.”

When we don’t take time for ourselves, we may become workers where everyone is the same, not being unique and creating our own niche in life. We may feel unappreciated and feel like all we do is work and never have any fun. We may feel our dreams are not coming true because we don’t really take time to work on them or step forward in the right direction.  

The moral is: Yes, ants and bees have their jobs. They work hard and for them there is a way they do things and it works for them, because they’re insects. But, we’re humans and we can choose to take time to have fun, do what we enjoy and to just be. (be, not bee, no pun intended)  

Affirmation for the weekend: I will do my best to enjoy life, to take moments to just be and appreciate the moments. I will stop and see what I have around me, be grateful, sit still and create peace within me. The dishes will still be there, the vaccuming, the car needing to be washed or fixing that gutter, but for right now, this moment, I will just sit, close my eyes and feel peace. THEN, I will feel even better when I know there are chores that need to be done because now I can do them with JOY!  

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  

Peace, blessings and just be~

Autumn Abundance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Autumn once again, the leaves have begun to fall and the nights are cooler. I love this time of year! Summer was so hot and humid and now its nice to sleep with the windows open listening to the crickets. Gardens didn’t do well in many areas this year. Now that its cooler, we’ve had more tomatoes come in and we’ve been canning them, but I’ve been a little upset that there were no squash to speak of. I love all kinds of squash cooked in a variety of ways. Hopefully next year the weather will be better for gardening and much more abundant. My herbs in pots and my container vegetable garden did well and I hope I can bring it indoors soon as the weather continues to get cooler.

For me, this time of year is filled with magic and mystery. I’m in awe of nature and how the seasons change like clockwork, as if they’ve been given a que from Mother Earth that its time for things to slow down, begin preparing for a long winter nap and a time for reflection.

I’ve felt a little guilty lately for not writing more here in my blog, but I’ve had lots of ideas and  inspiration come to me, so I make notes and begin, then I find myself getting busy doing half a dozen other things too. That’s not too unusual for me, but I’m working on scheduling time to write each week because writing makes me happy and I feel when we’ve been given a gift we should use it for good and not waste it. Of course, life happens and we have other things to tend to now and then.

Because of my love for Autumn, my Mom used to say, “how can you love this time of year when everything is dying?” My reply was and still is, “It’s not dying, everything is just going deep within for a long rest. It will all come back again in Spring!” It would do us well to live our lives like the seasons, nature has much to teach us.

I see Autumn as a time to prepare, to slow down, enjoy life, getting back to our roots and to basics. I like old fashion things and I enjoy “storing away” for my family and the feeling of gathering, harvesting and being grateful for all we have. The squirrels should be happy because I hear acorns hitting our roof day and night, so there’s an abundance for them, but perhaps that also means a bit of a longer winter due to the amount. I’ve also noticed so many spiders this year, they seem to be everywhere. I’ve talked to them and asked why they’re trying to take over our house, some moved on, but what I received intuitively was that they’re spinning their webs, bringing much together and they too, like many, are gathering and taking care. The days get shorter and the nights longer, making every thing more balanced since the days and nights are equal. Sitting by the fire or lighting a candle and going within ourselves when things are balanced and calm, is a good thing at this time of year. I truly enjoy sitting outside with the wind blowing the leaves all around, closing my eyes and feeling peace.

Let’s light a fire, grab a log or chair and sit around and enjoy the wonderful energy in the air and good company. The Full Harvest Moon is one of the strongest we’ll have and it’s a good time for clearing, cleansing and de-cluttering our lives, letting go of what’s not working so well. This may mean letting go of acquaintances, old habits, old ways of life and whatever you feel has been extra baggage for you to carry. I notice so many changes during this time of the year, from now until Samhain and All Saints Day. I feel it in the air and notice it within people’s lives.

This is a wonderful time, with Autumn Equinox, the Full Moon and wonderful energy everywhere. I hope you’ll take time to sit outside, to listen, feel, and pay attention to how things feel inside and out.

Have a wonderful Autumn~

Abundant blessings & Harvest,
