Hello there lovelies, it`s been a while since I`ve written here. I`ve been a little sick in past two weeks but I’m finally feeling better and happy and yes I’m also very much in autumn vibes as well 🙂
Even though summer is my favorite time of the year – autumn comes very near behind. I love the feeling of slower life what is the heart of autumn for me. I can literally feel how time and speed of everyday life slows down.
Autumn is the time for me when I always find myself re-valuing my life. In the spring it’s totally opposite, I get excited about so many new things and life is moving more fast pace. But, in autumn, there’s time to think and hear my feelings more – there are rainy days when I put the fire in the fireplace, light candles and just read the book wrapped in a blanket in the corner of the couch while my daughter is watching her favorite movie. There`s days when the best thing is a cup of coffee with no rush and just watching rain to fall on the window and days when I just wander around with my camera wanting to perpetuate every color and mood of nature.
Last years I’ve noticed it very clear how different seasons have its own mood, meaning and daily life speed and I feel lucky that in my country (Finland) we have so spectacular and clear difference between seasons. You can really see all the season in its fullness here. Like every season has its own meaning for nature I believe that we humans we could benefit to aligning and rhythm our lives more with seasons as well.
I have learned that by studying the nature and the seasons we can learn much about the nature of life. What this means for me in real life is that in spring it`s more natural for me to start new projects – I have new kind of light and fizzy energy inside of me in spring when nature is waking up to its full glory.
At winter as it is very cold and long in Finland, I feel like nature is sleeping its beauty sleep and that`s the time for me to slowly work my goals and dreams and since there`s less light I need more sleep and time for relaxing and nurturing my soul – it`s a great time to take care of myself.
When summer comes the light and warming sun gives so much energy that I don`t really feel a need to slow down so much. If you haven`t ever thought about aligning with seasons and rhythm your life with them – I hope you take a little to time to examine this and try it – It can bring a new kind of balance to your life ♥
Wishing you a lovely Thursday!
