Last weekend’s harvest moon has really got me thinking about nourishment. As the seasons change, sometimes so do our priorities. The back to school vibe of September is a great time to check in and figure out what best fills you up – nutritionally, emotionally, even spiritually.
Let whatever light shines inside you shine bright for everyone to see. There is beauty and bravery in doing your own thing without regard for what anyone else thinks.
Today is an exceptional day. First, it is Friday the Thirteenth. Second, it is a full moon, specifically the Harvest Moon. It is called the Harvest Moon as it is the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal Equinox. In addition, it is also a micro moon, which means that the moon is positioned at its apogee, its most distant point away from the Earth along its orbit. Full moons are wondrous times to sit back and reflect, let go of what no longer serves you, and the harvest is the best time to gather together what nourishes you and leave the rest.
Next time your plans don’t work out, don’t consider yourself a failure. Just consider yourself a scientist who is conducting experiments to see what works. Keep experimenting, and eventually you will get the right formula.
If you are lucky enough to find yourself a weirdo to be your friend, never ever let them go. Especially if they enjoy your unique brand of weird too.
If at first you don’t succeed, regroup, have a sit down, relax for a moment and consider what happened and how you’ll try again. You’ll get there and you’ve got this!
Sometimes people like to recommend doing one thing each day that scares you. Perhaps instead, do at least one thing each day that fills you with joy.
I don’t know about ya’ll, but often I feel like I am the odd one out. Fear of missing out, or FOMO, sometimes can cause me a lot of anxiety. Take a step back, appreciate the moment and be in the now.
If you do your best and you don’t succeed the first time – keep trying, your best can always get better.
Take a moment, turn your attention inward, and own what makes you weird. The things that make you weird are the things that make you wonderful.
