Walk along a creek enough times and you’ll see the ebbs and flows of said creek. There are times when it is full and flowing, and there are times when the water is low and slower moving.
I was walking along the creek a while ago. The water was lower than normal and moving a bit slower than normal. The water was still moving and flowing, but it was simply slower than I had seen it in a while.
We are entering a season of a bit more cold, a bit more darkness, where our energy might be a little slower, a little less flowing. We are entering a season where we might feel a bit more tired, we might have more of a desire to turn inward and hibernate a bit.
I think there are times when we get frustrated with our energy levels in this season…but I wonder how it might feel if we embrace the season we are in, if we lean into slowing down and turning inward, if we give ourselves permission to feel the space and cycle that our bodies are naturally in.
I hope, this week, if you are feeling frustrated by your natural energy levels, you can give yourself a little more permission to slow down, to turn inward, and to lean into the season we are in right now without judgment.
Have an amazing week, my friends.
