7 Tips for Saying Goodbye to Sentimental Belongings

When I moved to Door County, back in 2007, I had to leave a whole life behind. All that I treasured wasn’t going to fit in my two allowed international luggage. I had no choice but to only keep what truly mattered. I chose my favorite clothing items, and pictures. I packed my bags, and bye bye.

The hermit energies of winter
Melted with the blossoms of spring,
Followed by the heat of summer,
And all the sexiness it brings.

I am cooling down, now,
Enjoying yet another closure.
My heart moves with the hauling winds,
My breath stills as leaves hit the ground.

It’s Fall, leaves and all.
I am ready, I am, and as
Moments turn into memory,
I enter a new cycle.

…and then I take deep breath.

The Autumn of Your Life

“You can’t hide your true colors as you approach the autumn of your life”.

The time has come again
To shed all the barriers
All the unnecessary filters
That are diminishing the Light
Whatever you picked up along the way
No need for inventory
Time to look ahead and
Move forward
It’s the autumn of your Life
Love yourself
Letting Go

“We cling to our point of view, as though everything depended on it.  Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn, they gradually pass away.”

“Nothing is more fleeting than external form, which withers and alters like the flowers of the field at the appearance of autumn”.
(Umberto Eco)



“True consistency, that of the prudent and the wise, is to act in conformity with circumstances, and not to act always the same way under a change of circumstances.”
(John C. Calhoun)

What does consistency mean to you?
Does it allow you to change with the cycles?
Does it allow you to listen to your body?
Does it allow you to listen to your heart?
