9 Fall Equinox Affirmations New Yorkers Can Vibe With
Fall is Upon Us...
Don't you just love everything about fall? The shorter, cooler days. The beautiful colors of trees and foliage.
The shifting gears.
The cute tights.
According to Almanac.com, "The fall equinox and the first day of autumn arrives on Saturday, September 23, 2023, at 02:50 A.M. EDT in the Northern Hemisphere. The equinox occurs at the same moment worldwide."
And whenever fall equinox is upon us, it means it's time to set some cute intentions and put some new affirmations in our mental rotation. I was browsing the interwebs and found a really cool idea from FATIMA-ZAHRA FARAHATE for ouiwegirl.com to help us set the tone for the autumn season. Farahate suggests the following prompts that you fill in the blanks for personalized affirmations.
