Autumnal Equinox Intention Setting

September 23rd marked the Autumnal Equinox, or the official start of fall. Transitional periods, like this time, are ideal for reflecting on the past and setting an intention for the future. That right there can seem like a lot to accomplish… but give yourself one minute to do it, and see what comes up!

15 seconds: Replay everything you can remember from the year so far. Notice what comes to mind first!
15 seconds: Pause and feel gratitude for everything you have experienced. It has all contributed to your growth.
29 seconds: Set an intention for the season ahead. What do you want your life to feel like for the next few months? Create a statement that defines that thought.
1 second: Smile.

In actuality, the exercise above could take hours. To really honor the past (without dwelling on it), and to set yourself in the right direction for the future (without putting worry into it), could take a while. But, by dedicating just one minute to this, you’re more likely to try it… right? Bottom line: learn from the past, and take charge of the future.
