Welcoming Change This Fall
This fall's Luxe & Luminous Collection box theme is “changing colors.” During this season, we can enjoy cool, crisp days, radiant blue skies and scenic drives filled with foliage. We’re changing our clocks, our closets, our class schedules and more.
Another thing that’s changing is that the days are getting shorter—darkness
arrives a little bit earlier each night.
Emotionally, some changes may be difficult, like those involving loss, uncertainty or struggle. During these times, it helps to also change perspectives. We can get still and sit with the wisdom that more than one emotion can be true at a time. Along with those darker feelings, we may also feel gladness, gratitude or hope about the many good things surrounding us.
During moments of distress, consider a subtle yet powerful shift. Acknowledge the emotion. But instead of thinking I am sad or I am angry or I am anxious or I am fearful, think I am experiencing sadness, or I am experiencing anger and so on. This helps us remember that tough times are transient. That darkness doesn’t define us. That there is space for the bitter and the sweet to flow through our lives at the same time. When we return to a sense of wholeness, “I am” doesn’t need any modifier at all, does it?
Autumn is also a season when we celebrate thankfulness and abundance. This is a great time to look at daily routines. Consider which you might elevate to rituals that serve your intentions, your passions and your peace. For instance, you can have your morning coffee while sitting in traffic or while sitting on the deck enjoying nature. Which habit brings you more joy?
We chose the colorful contents of this autumn box with the intention of bringing you joy.
