Using the power of metaphor to reframe what’s limiting you and to discover what’s possible.

Fallen Leaves

Fallen leaves of many colors are blanketing the ground after floating down from previously lofty positions.  Some leaves let go only after completely being drained of all color while others let go at their most glorious time.  Some are forced to detach by strong winds, while others seem to start the journey based on some internal sense.  The transition from autumn to winter always happens regardless of how the leaves fall.

What is season of transition are you in the midst of?

How can you make the transition feel more natural?

What, if anything, is causing you to hang on?

The idea of seasons can help you look for the gift in the present situation. Make your own seasonal reminder by dividing paper into four quadrants and labeling them: WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN. Into each of these quadrants, write/collage/draw all of the gifts you associate with that season. That spring always follows winter can help remind us that death of one career can lead to life in another. Remembering that rain makes the flowers grow can help reframe a character-building hardship.
