The most meaningful work you will ever do is the inner work of dismantling the walls of your own heart. Service that sprouts from compassion is the most beautiful work out there. These are affirmative statements to guide the compassionate workers, the love-driven, and the intrinsically-rewarding decisions we can all make, whatever our calling or station in life.
Fall is one of the loveliest times for reflection and renewal. Magic seems more easily accessible, almost like it’s glittering in the air, begging us to see it. You’ll want to keep these fall affirmations on hand if you’re ready to open up to the beauty this season has to give.
