I have always loved Autumn, in no small part because of its association with new beginnings. As a child, it marked the beginning of a new school year. Later, as a Congressional staffer, it represented a return to hard work after the slower pace of August recess.
While I am no longer a student or Hill staffer, the approach of fall is still exciting. As we turn the calendar to September and stand on the cusp of a new season, the air is buzzing with the electricity of possibility. All around me I am seeing plans set into action and dreams coming to fruition. Seemingly impossible goals are being reached by brave souls who are daring to dream big and willing to work hard.
I love what this quote represents. In our heart of hearts, we are free to be bold and believe anything can happen, but we too often allow our pride and past experience to limit our willingness to act. What might we achieve if we instead gave ourselves permission to listen to the quiet but persistent voice that comes from our heart?
As you step forward into fall, can you plug into the energy of endless possibility and follow where your heart leads?
