Embracing Healthy Boundaries


🍂 Embracing Healthy Boundaries: Lessons from Fall Leaves 🍂

As autumn’s vibrant colors grace our surroundings, it’s a season that beautifully illustrates the importance of setting and maintaining healthy boundaries in our lives. Just like the leaves change, so too should we evolve our boundaries for personal growth.

🍁 Letting Go: The fall leaves teach us the art of letting go. Just as leaves must release their hold on branches, we too must let go of relationships, habits, or situations that no longer serve us. Healthy boundaries mean recognizing when it’s time to shed what’s no longer necessary.

🍂 Colors of Change: The variety of colors in fall foliage showcases the spectrum of boundaries. Some leaves hold on longer, while others fall easily. Our boundaries can also vary – firm in some areas, flexible in others, adapting to different seasons of life.

🍁Space for Growth: A tree knows its limits and creates space for new growth. Similarly, setting boundaries in our lives can create room for personal development. By saying “no” when needed, we make space for “yes” to the things that truly matter.

🍂 Self-Care as Nourishment: Trees shed leaves to conserve energy and resources. We too must prioritize self-care. Healthy boundaries are like a tree’s way of saying, “I need to focus on my roots right now to thrive later.”

🍂 Respecting Personal Space: Fall leaves maintain a respectful distance from one another on branches. Similarly, healthy boundaries help us respect personal space, ensuring that we honor the autonomy and privacy of ourselves and others.

🍁Defending Against Storms: Trees with healthy boundaries, like leaves clinging to branches, provide protection and stability. In life, strong boundaries act as a defense against the storms of stress, negativity, and chaos, keeping us grounded and resilient. Just as leaves remain connected yet distinct, our boundaries can keep us secure while fostering connection with others.

This fall, as you enjoy the beauty of nature’s transformation, remember the wisdom of the leaves. Set healthy boundaries that reflect the changing seasons of your life and watch as you grow and flourish just like the trees that shed their leaves, preparing for new beginnings. 🍁🍂

~Boundaries are not about controlling others, but rather controlling our own lives. Don’t confuse the two.

Hey Friend, Welcome to a part of my small world. Because this is called the "About Me" Page, I probably should say a few things about me. Right? Here goes.... I was a Certified Child Development Specialist for over twenty years, while working with infants, toddlers, Pre-K and Head Start..... I am now a Certified (Christian) Breakthrough Life Coach through Life Breakthrough Academy. I could say so much more between the dot, dot, dots...but I'll spare you the boredom. LOL I am the founder of -Her Journey Towards Change- for women who are (for whatever reason) on their journey towards change. I believe everyone needs that 'go to' person in facilitating change. But, sadly, not everyone does. I know what it's like trying to figure life out but can't seem to get past the 'stuck' mindset. The first step to becoming 'unstuck' is being truthful with yourself. Believe me...I know. This is why I started 'Her Journey Towards Change.' I have a passion and purpose for serving God and for serving women. My hope is to provide you with a valuable service in finding clarity in your struggles, accountability in reaching your goals, assisting with strategies through guidance and support, focus on your God-given talents and unique skills, offer positive insights and new perspectives and eliminate the negativity that might be pulling you down. I truly believe God has given women a uniqueness like nothing else in this world. I also believe when we, as women, understand our identity in Christ, we can know our purpose. And in spite of our challenges, we can live in faith with the hope and joy God desires for us. ~Born and raised as a coal miner's daughter in North Central West Virginia is what keeps me humble. My influence as a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother gives me purpose. Living my life to the fullest and making each day count is what keeps me fulfilled. Using my God-given talents for others simply makes me happy...and living for God is what makes me whole.~
