At least for me, this time of year tends to focus me. I realign with the routine the summer madness tangled up. I like having my pattern back. I'm also a perpetually future-focused person, to the point it's probably my tragic flaw. Fall, for me, just brings that sense of change; it’s time passing in a picture. It grants me lots of time to self-reflect, the days are shorter and schedules less sporadic. And since I just celebrated my 25th birthday, I admit I have been doing a lot of the self-reflecting lately. Who am I kidding, I’ve been doing it since I was six…
Autumn only lasts a few weeks at its fiery peak, so you have to be ready for it- and for what's next. So in that sense, it’s transient. Quite the perfect balance for my mindset actually. You can see the future passing through the changing leaves, yet you have to enjoy the moments as it will be gone in the blink of an eye. To help me with keeping my time-wandering mind grounded, I am planning on embracing a few fall traditions.
Of course, fall is also just fun. From fashion to food, to those traditional fall activities-pumpkin patches, apple picking, Halloween. Bring on the blanket scarves, boots, and berry lips. Don’t forget the #psl. With regards to the blog, I have an ambitious goal set. Everyday. Yup. I’m diving right in. I took a lot of time to plan it out (you should see my crazy calendar), so I think I can handle it. Even on top of my new job that’s just starting to pick up speed. It will be good to get in the routine again. Summer comes with ebbs and flows of inspiration and productivity-the essential combo I need to have the motivation to post, but fall is a little more consistent with the crisp air being a perpetual pick-me-up.
I am so excited for the future and the now. I hope to share many of these moments #ontheblog.
