It happens to me just around this time of year. Every year. I call it “Fall Falls.” At the beginning of this, my absolute favorite time of the year, all that I suppose I signed on to complete this calendar year, whether it be emotional, physical, or whatever, that I haven’t yet completed steam-rolls me and knocks me over, doing just about anything it/they can to be noticed.

As I am sure you can guess, as a result, this is a deeply emotional experience for me, making for a deeply emotional season.

Fall Falls.

But over the years (in reality, more like decades), I have learned to better deal with my season of Fall Falls. Here’s what I do, which I feel can be put to use should you be left to deal with your own version of Fall Falls, Spring Springs or whatever.

First, I have to clear my head and keep it cleared. The residue from the emotional baggage that the issues tap into have to be cleared and kept cleared, if I have any chance at all of regaining my emotional sanity before the Holidays.

I’m a writer, so the route most accessible to the guidance, love, support, and wisdom of the Almighty is through – you guessed it – writing. So I spend a lot of time every day communing with Spirit through my writing. So important does this become during my season of Fall Falls that it now is a routine. I start off every day by writing.

Secondly, with the cobwebs of despair now cleared out of my head because of my writing, I can now go more deeply into the real reasons, real lessons behind the issues that arise in my life during this time of year. This makes just it so much easier to see a greater purpose behind a supposed dilemma; thus I can deal with it more proactively and efficiently.

Lastly, my wayward emotions often get stuck in my body. So as the last step in this needed process, I take time to literally tune into whatever part(s) of my body seems to be holding onto an unresolved issue, I tune into it, hear it out, and by doing so give it the attention and love it is crying out for, making everything good in its world.

I hope this helps if you’re dealing with your own version of the Fall Falls or whatever….Tom
