Welcome to sparkly beautiful SEPTEMBER, let’s hope and pray we have an Indian Summer!
I was brought up in Suffolk on a farm, so it was for us the significant month of harvest, scary big combine harvesters, gathering the crops and making multiple visits to the grain merchants. Even though I was a little tot, I became part of the excitement and sensed the importance of this time of year. To this day I get a buzz out of seeing the straw bales rolled up on a field, witnessing the wonder of creation and the season, the ground ready to be ploughed and seeded for future growth.
Isn’t this a parallel for daily life? We’ve lived through an extraordinary period over the past eighteen months and this time will have reaped a different kind of harvest in our lives and it may only be in the months and years ahead that we see any fruit of lessons learned. But in reality, there is bounty in any season of life whether you’re in a sowing, reaping, harvesting, or enjoying the fruits of your labour. You have to intentionally look for the feel-good-factor in any stage and if you do, it really is there.
I shared last month a recall of my reflections and feel-good-factor meanderings this year, if you missed them you can catch up some HERE.
