I've been doing a lot of reflecting, planning (business and personal), and general tending of the house that has nothing to do with literally, tending the house. I've been bringing a focused intention to my actions and realize that as a creative person, it's easy to get off task or daydream into another thought or spend more time on a little thing rather than the larger things that are really most important to me. And through this focused intention, I'm realizing that my own crafting of my life, really, is about taking the road less traveled. Not the common nor the expected. Of this constant listening to myself to know where to go next, to look forward to what's beyond the curve in the road. To ponder pulling over and going off road.
When I took this photo I titled it "The road less traveled is always the most interesting...and beautiful." Even this analogy is one I've used throughout my life. When things like this continue to pop up I listen to them carefully. They are messages from the universe reminding me to listen to them, and to myself.
No big epiphanies here to share with you other than thoughts on the season. For me it's a time of reflection and of the beginning of the dark season of within. Dark is not always bad. It's a reconnecting to self, of listening, of seeing, and of being present on this road less traveled. It's a beautiful time of year. Make sure you are experiencing it.
