Don’t be afraid to wobble or fall when you’re finding your balance or yourself. If we never took the risk to stand upright, we would never have any adventures.
Depending on where you are, the autumn is a wonderful time to enjoy seasonal foods. Of course, there are pumpkins aplenty, but also beets, rocket (arugula), spinach, cabbage and sweet potatoes – all of which lend themselves to delicious, nourishing meals. Take care of yourself from the inside out – and sweet potatoes and pumpkin especially are wonderful fillers for one of my favourite fall foods – PIE.
The goat pictured below is Harriet, who is friends with Cindy, yesterday’s goat. They live happily together on my friend Pippa’s farm.
There is a saying that “Rome was not built in a day” which is absolutely true! It took over a millennia from Rome to expand from a city on the Tiber to an empire reaching from the farthest corners of Europe across the Fertile Crescent and Northern Africa. Most likely, your goal is probably not inter-continental domination, so luckily whatever it is you are trying to accomplish won’t take that long, so keep at it. If it is important to you, then it is absolutely worth the wait.
In addition, today’s goat is a friend of a friend of mine. Her name is Cindy and judging from her easy grin, she quite likes October so far.
Oh goodness it is late and I’m all out of ideas of what to say! Enjoy some goats and I will summon some wisdom for tomorrow.
Autumn is such a hopeful time. Keep your chin up and your shoulders back – you’ve made it this far, and that’s amazing!
Today is Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year. It is a good time to reflect, take a moment to remember all that nourishes you, and rejoice for new opportunities.
Saturdays are great days to hang out with friends.
You don’t have to be brave all the time, you just have to be brave at the right time. When is the right time? Take a deep look inside and you’ll figure it out.
I hope that whenever you are you get to enjoy some amazing sunny autumn afternoons.
Sometimes in life it’s not what you do that matters but how you do it.
