We are in a season of transition. Right now it's back to school time and the weather is changing. Whether you're experiencing changes you consider positive or negative, change always takes energy. If your kids have gone back to school, it's normal for them to have trouble regulating their emotions when they get home. So be kind and patient. If your kids have gone back to school it's normal for you to feel out of sorts. So be kind and patient. If you don't have the kids thing going on it's still fall. And fall brings all sorts of changes. There's less light. People have a different kind of busy. It's normal to feel different and even tired as you adjust to the changes. So be kind and patient. Bottom line: However you and others are feeling is normal and kindness and patience is the way to go.
