Ahh, the changing of the seasons, the coming of fall… I get to pull out all my cozy sweaters, snuggle inside…. NO! The coming of fall has always given me the sense of impending doom. The warm season when my skin gives more willingly to treatment is coming to an end. As the mornings get cooler and the darkness sets in earlier and earlier my anxiety grows as well as my instinct to deny the challenges ahead.
It’s so easy to let things happen without taking control. Before I know it all the positive work that I did over the bright and warm months, when I am naturally more optimistic, wanes and my skin succumbs to winter. As the scales encroach and my dread intensifies I finally acknowledge that I must begin a concerted effort to clear my skin.
Although I truly enjoy and thrive during these times when I take charge of my health I continue to struggle with finding the motivation to start before it becomes an absolute necessity.
So— this season I vow to do it differently!
Now is the time to tap into my personal empowerment such that I can enjoy the coziness of fall and the beauty in the season.
WORLD PSORIASIS DAY is today! This is the perfect day for my surrogate New Year’s Resolution. This is mine.
