One of the things that has had a major impact on both my productivity and my enjoyment of life has been discovering my rhythm. A profound part of that has been learning to work with the seasons. The 3-month length of a season seems just right for creating a focus, making a change and bringing a project to life. Add in the natural energies of summer, fall, winter and spring and you’ve got magic!
With transition just around the corner, it’s time to cherish the season we’re leaving behind before we start our dreaming for the next.
Here are some journal prompts to help you celebrate and learn from the summer (or winter) that was!
