A few times a year, we as a family have to adjust to a new normal. The reasons why vary – schedule changes, school, summer break, etc. – but they all fall in the “adjustment” category.
October was a doozy. Changes were coming at us from every direction. The month started with a bang with Mercury in Retrograde. Add to it work schedules, school schedules, weekend schedules with JJ’s dad, time changes. It goes on and on. By the end I was done. I could see it was starting to get to all of us.
Thankfully the excitement of Halloween allowed us to forget our troubles for a few hours and it seems we’ve all reset. I see it as God’s little nudge. The holidays are coming and this is a time to be thankful and appreciate the world around us. I love the crisp air and fall leaves. The way the air smells after it rains – I almost forgot, but it finally rained here yesterday – like real rain! The colors and all of the delicious food – and reasons to eat a little more than normal.
So while there is a natural element of stress that can come with change, roll with it and see what happens before resisting. Change isn’t always bad.
