Welcome to September
A brilliant bridge between summer and fall in the northern hemisphere, September marks the season of recommitment, refocus, and rebirth.
However we have spent our summer, we’re invited to return to center, get organized, and release the excess clutter within us and around us.
September asks us to refocus our energy and priorities toward what we deeply desire.
September is a nudge to spend our time wisely.
How is this year playing out for you?
What is working well?
What needs to shift in your energy and approach?
There is still so much time left in 2019, friend. September urges us not to waste it or wait until 2020 to make the changes we desire. This month brings students back to school and all of us back to life’s classroom with more intention, purpose, and courage.
It’s a powerful time to start new projects, pick up and finish lingering ones, and take action instead of just talking about it. September is also an auspicious time to explore old patterns and relationships with fresh eyes.
Want to build consistency in a habit? This is the time. Give yourself the permission to use the resources, structure, and accountability available to you.
Feeling stuck? Engage the hard questions and acknowledge how you got there. Be honest with yourself on what’s keeping you there too.
Constantly over-thinking? Pause. Give yourself space to actually listen and engage the questions. The answers emerge when we give them room to surface.
Desiring to shake things up a bit? Revisit what you may have missed with something familiar. Refurbish, recommit, and courageously attend to what you already have, friend. There is deep beauty in the rubble yet to be explored.
STOKING OUR PRACTICE
Begin this new month with intentional reflection to stoke your courageous action more consciously.
An added benefit: Share your thoughts with someone you trust for support & accountability.
You are also invited to share in The Courageous Collective, our private, compassionate Facebook group.
RELEASE: What doubts and (internal & external) clutter must I release to create more space for something new this month?
REFOCUS: What needs my focus this September? How will I reprioritize my energy, time, and actions to better support this focus?
REBIRTH: What do I want to dust off and try again? What embers still remain? What haven’t I given a real chance? What rebirth is calling me this fall?
Here's to a courageous month ahead! Begin right here by sharing in the comments below how you will embrace September.
See you in the practice, friend.
