"May All Who Enter Our Doors Find Peace, Security And Respect"

As we watch leaves fluttering to the ground in the fall, we are reminded that nature's cycles are mirrored in our lives. Autumn is a time to let go. A time for releasing negative thoughts and actions that have been holding you back and taking up valuable space in your mind. Fall is the right time to relinquish what we cannot change and to relish the things we CAN change and the things we
CAN do.
 
  Around this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, as the days grow shorter and colder, those changes trigger a hormone in leaf-dropping trees that sends a chemical message to every leaf that says, in essence, "Time to go! Let's part company"! Make autumn a time for letting go of all YOUR burdens, doubts, guilt, and any emotions that limit your ability from moving on. This may not happen overnight, but with time, you can allow yourself to be forgiven and to stop worrying about what you cannot change or events that are, (or were), out of your control. 
We are all imperfect, but we are enough. Be sure to tell yourself that often, and once we let go of the things that don't really matter, we may discover all the things that really do!

 Let go, and let's grow!!
