Why We Cannot Get Enough Of August
There is something about the month of August no matter where you are in the world, it brings with it a feeling of optimism, curiosity, reflection, newness and the longing to want to remain in the moment as long as possible. For many it is the essence of a summer filled with sunshine, longer days, ice-cream in the park, humid work days and for others it represents the rainy season and tropical storms, chilly nights and the smell of earth. But if we stop for a moment and immerse ourselves where we are, closing our eyes and breathing in the fresh air, surrendering to nature and all that is possible, there is something about August that makes everything worthwhile.
August The Heart Of The Year’s Transition
Whether we choose to travel, to create new projects, to send our children off to summer camps, to do double shifts to prepare them for the new school term ahead, take a vacation, the possibilities are endless. August is the heart of the year’s transition from overcoming to allowing, to conquering to accepting, to longing, to feeling everything about ourselves and where we are going. August can be auspicious or as authentic as we choose it to be. Or let’s say for a moment we don’t get to choose, but to accept, that this month is and will be the best life has to offer and we go forth and let it happen.
‘If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track, which has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.’ Joseph Campbell
Why not make this August, the month that you realise that being your authentic self and living fearlessly, you can have the best life, right here and now, in this moment, in this precious season of knowing and learning!
August The Month Of Possibilities
So welcome to August and all that is possible and all that you are capable of doing, being and overcoming. YOU GOT THIS! Make every day count, get up earlier, enjoy the fresh air, give more hugs, worry less, meditate, travel, save money, read good books, count your blessings and let the miracle of August fill you with awe.
