Fall is a beautiful season for renewal. It’s a time to re-see yourself, regardless of your personality type, to celebrate Mother Nature’s colorful call to let go. Forests magically flip a switch; turning their leaves from emerald green to butterscotch yellows, crimson reds, and fiery oranges. It’s the time of year when the mountains invite us to celebrate long leaf-peeping weekends. Nature gently reminds us of this universal principle; we must shed something to grow.
Journal Prompt: Breathe in the crisp fall air, settle in, and journal about what you are ready to let go, during this fall season.
Letting Go Ignites a Beautiful Fall Season For Renewal
LETTING GO. As we watch fall leaves flutter to the ground, they remind us that nature’s cycles mirror our own life cycles. Autumn is a time for letting go and releasing things we struggle with. Letting go of values and beliefs that no longer serve us. And it could also be a letting go of people, places, and things that no longer meet us on the path of self-betterment
One of Life’s Simple Rhythms
One of life’s simple rhythms is slowing down. When we wind down, we let our minds process what we’ve experienced. The hustle slows, the doing turns into being, and we figure out what’s truly important; family, friends, a meaningful career, and time for self-discovery. It’s a mindset and a different lifestyle. It’s a simpler way to live. The old saying, slow and steady, wins the race, is a mantra I’m embracing this fall and beyond.
In the season of fall, we’re reminded to let go of what we’ve outgrown; old habits and beliefs, or even stuff that clutters our homes. Which eventually clutters our minds, Nina Zapala, Founder of Spiritual Personality Typing.
Composting Our Minds
While the leaves blanket the ground and slowly decay, they ultimately provide a nutritious treat for the roots of the trees. The composted leaves feed the tree roots and sustain them during the cold, dark winter days.
Think of composting as a way of letting go of negativity. Just as the decaying leaves nurture the trees, our own positive thoughts nurture our hearts and mental well-being. Releasing makes room for brand-new healthy habits and genuine beliefs to bloom. You’ll feel the anxiety and anger lift, albeit slowly. However, if you keep at it, maybe by spring, you’ll be in full bloom. Why not try it? If it doesn’t work, you can return to the old way of being. It’s a free-will thing!
Five Beautiful Fall Affirmations
Please know that I understand how challenging it is to change. I’ve spent many nights curled up in a ball, crying my eyes out, over-drinking, overspending, and blaming others. The crying helped because it got me in touch with my feelings, while the physical stuff only made me feel worse; fuzzy-minded, and in credit card debt. Plus, I learned that blaming others is utterly useless.
1. Choose Joy
What could bring you joy today? Zero in and look for the simple things; beautiful fall foliage, a warm cup of cider, or carving a pumpkin. Ultimately, all of those little moments will build up to create joy. What won’t? Superficial things.
2. Choose To Be Kind
MANTRA: I am kind. I treat myself and others with kindness. If you focus your intention on being kind to yourself and be kind to others; holding the door for someone, saying thank you, be the first to say hello… watch how easily these miraculous of kindnesses come back to you. Know, it’s your spirit mind, listening, responding, and showing you the way!
Embrace kindness as a mantra in business and on vacation. It will take you places you could never have imagined.

4. Falls Colors Are Calling You #journal prompts
Mother Nature has always been my refuge, and I’ve come to embrace HER as a calming friend. As you look at the colors in nature what colors call to you? What are they trying to tell you?
- Red the fiery passionate you? Have you lost your passion or are you in passion overload; over the top without a plan for slowing down?
- Orange is freeing of the body and mind and supports a deeper understanding of what you need for optimum physical health. Think about aches and pains, what are they trying to tell you? Notice situations when the pain is lessened and worse; who are you with, what are you doing, what feelings are arising.
- Gold symbolizes both logical thought and spiritual discernment, which when integrated brings you the wisdom of the true Self. What separates you from gold, is a lack of discernment, relying on your false self, and succumbing to negativity and doubt.
- Brown is earthy, rooted in connectivity and reliability. It’s about groundedness, safety, and a sense of belonging. What areas in your life; belonging, grounding, and safety need your attention? What small steps can you take today?
5. Walk Into Fall With A Daily Mantra
Today, with so much chaos in the world, instead of turning to fear connect with the Divine Intelligence within and ask for guidance. I use this mantra: “Divine, in this time of profound transformation, show me the right path for me.”
Tip: To receive spiritual enlightenment, you need to listen with your spiritual ears. And don’t expect answers, signs, or symbols in unconventional ways. I seem to find feathers weekly. It’s my angels letting me know I’m on the right path.

Fall A Beautiful Season for Renewal Take the Challenge
Will you accept the challenge and apply the following affirmations to your travel experiences this fall? It’s all about mindset, awareness, and taking action.

As a course changer and a new path maker, I always look for ways to upend the status quo and challenge convention. I believe the uncertainty of the unknown pushes us to explore ourselves all the more. I honestly believe that the magic of the unknown holds life’s most coveted treasures. It helps you look past what you think you know, shatter irrelevant expectations, and bring your authentic self to the forefront of your life. Ahh, living in the true Self. There is no better way
