Clean-up time

Started the fall ritual of putting away the deck furniture, cutting off dead plants and raking leaves today. Getting the yard ready for winter while the weather is still nice. It’s around 32 degrees out there, but the sun is shining and the crisp air feels good. I prefer working outside in cooler weather, and even now, I feel hot and sweaty. The four seasons kind of call for such activities and they have a certain pleasant rhythm to them.

Life is kind of like that too. Putting away or getting rid of things we don’t use any more, cleaning out the dead and decaying areas of our life, making room for fresh new growth. If we don’t do maintenance and up-keep on our house it becomes a mess. If we don’t do maintenance and up-keep on our lives, they also become a mess.

Working in the yard with my wife makes the work easier as we share it. Working with a life coach also makes the work easier when you have someone to share it with. A coach can also help you see areas that need work and provide helpful techniques for getting the work done efficiently.
