For me Fall begins in September. Although the weather may still be hot & the leaves on the trees may still be pure green, change is in the air. I've always loved September, not just because it's my birth month but because I love the feeling of transition and I love daydreaming about cozy sweaters, pumpkins in the fields, hot cocoa & crisp clean air spiced with the earthy sweetness of decaying leaves. It's a time for home & hearthfires. Can you tell I relate strongly to Hestia, Goddess of the hearth :)? I can hardly wait for the change of seasons. I've never really been a summer girl. It's a lovely season but a bit too sweet and cheerful for me. I like the moodiness of Autumn.
So Autumn is my time. I always feel a sense of renewal, emotionally &
creatively. A bounce appears in my step. I want to make things with my hands. I get inspired to diet or exercise or start some other self improvement project.
Basically, It's time to dust off the inner cobwebs or time to turn over a new leaf (pun intended). As I am about to turn another year older I find myself thinking of my life and in particular thinking of what I want to have more of and what I need to have less of in order to love my life even more. Deep thoughts deserving of more time. I'll probably post a detailed list later but for now suffice it to say I want MORE FUN, MORE CHALLENGES, & MORE POSITIVITY. I want less empty distractions (TV/junk food), less annoyances (messy unorganized house) and less negative thoughts (inner critic).
What are some things that you would like to have more of or things you want less of in your own life?
As I side note I want to mention that I'm taking a new ecourse called Blogging Your Way! So if anyone from the class wanders in I want to say WELCOME! I hope you'll leave me a comment and introduce yourselves. It's always fun to make new blogging friends.
