Autumn is here! Well – in theory, because it’s still a bit too warm for my taste. But something about turning the calendar to October makes my heart happy. Football, hoodies, gorgeous leaves changing colors… I feel energized and excited to see what my favorite month has in store for me.
Saw this quote on Instagram today, and really wanted to post it here so I can talk about it.
The fall teaches us a lesson every year. Trees go bare and banish dead parts that no longer belong. The leaves, that change colors, an then fall to the earth represent the things that we truly need to let go of. – Sylvester McNutt
Isn’t this a great way to think of Fall? All of the things that are weighing you down, let them be those leaves that are going to fall to the ground. Let them go, and feel the freedom, enjoy this beautiful season!
I have some very aggressive personal goals for this month, but rather than feeling overwhelmed, I feel motivated and determined. This is the perfect month for me to tackle these goals, and I want to take you all along with me. A very, very dear friend of mine gave me a little tough love this week, reminding me that I cannot call myself a writer if I don’t WRITE.
I have been focusing on my fitness and health but have neglected my creative self. She was so right. Just talking about writing doesn’t build a following, doesn’t inspire anyone, and really just frustrates me. What’s that old saying “don’t talk about it, be about it?” Yeah – that.
So many thoughts in my head, and several people have encouraged me to just put them out there because they might inspire or interest at least one person. That is a great way to think about it, and that helps me keep things in perspective. I don’t have to write the GREATEST content I just have to be present and share myself with you all. 🙂
Set yourself some goals, right now… go ahead. Whatever negativity is holding you back, let that go like those leaves that will be falling to the ground. Only YOU can make your dreams come true, so come along with me. What do you have to lose? Let’s make Autumn our best season yet.
