A WORD FOR EVERY SEASON: FAITH

The word very much needed for this season of my life is ‘faith’... Faith can be elusive to some but for others it can be the one thing that underpins all their choices. I am currently focusing on cultivating more faith and letting hope float to the surface. What is it that roots you? And what are those roots anchored to?

In previous years I have chosen a word to hold onto for the year, something to focus on and turn to for inspiration, for example in 2017 my word for the year was ‘Ease’. However at the start of 2018 I couldn’t settle on a word, but as the year has gone on there has been one word that has kept coming into focus. It has become apparent that the word very much needed for this season of my life is ‘Faith’.

The word ‘Faith’ and its meaning can take quite a lot of unpicking… it can mean vastly different things to everyone. It is a word that can mean so much to so many.

Faith can be elusive to some but for others it can be the one thing that underpins all their choices.

Back to school is a big transition for us grown-ups as well as the little people in our lives. I don’t know about you, but for me it’s a mix of feeling ready to go, and needing to find my feet again, as we all get used to being back in a more structured routine.

Plus there is a big seasonal shift that happens at the beginning of September, as we say a fond farewell to summer and welcome autumn with open arms.

Autumn is such a beautiful season with all its golden colours, and early sunsets. Traditionally a time associated with gathering crops in for the winter ahead, I find it can also be a great time to harvest all the hard work that I have been putting in throughout year.
