September 23 is the fall equinox this year. Fall is a time of harvesting, finishing up projects and completing goals.
I had several goals this year. One of which was to go visit
the girls in Georgia. We did that and had a wonderful vacation. It was great to
get away for a week and see all three girls. I’m hoping we can do something
similar next year.
For writing, I had specific goals. Some of these I’ve met
and exceeded and others I’ve totally not met. One of my goals was to submit
work / articles each month. I was hoping to do at least three but so far I’ve
only done sporadic submissions.
Another goal was to get one or two books published. I’ve now
gotten seven books published. I seem to have exceeded this goal by quite a bit.
I’ve got two more books in the wings which I’m hoping to get out there in the
next three months.
Going into winter and heading to the winter solstice becomes
a time to reflect on what I’ve done right and wrong this year, how I need to
change to improve, what I need to leave alone and just keep the same. By winter
solstice, I’ll be looking at what my new goals will be and what I want for the
Fall is my favorite time of the year. I always feel
energized and love the season. The colors, the crisp fall air, and the slowing
from summer craziness (and before the holiday craziness). For me it is a happy
time of enjoying the beauty of the season.
