I have a running joke that I “hibernate” in the summer, instead of the winter.
While everyone else may associate the Fall/Winter with things dying and becoming bland and stark, I think of it as a time of shedding all that is holding you back and letting go of things that do not serve to better your life. This is the time of year when I start to come back home to myself, when I start to grow and when the world comes alive for me. I become more present and start to get excited and renewed with energy. It is this time of year when things like magic and love and adventure are in the air, so palpable that you can breathe them in, filling your lungs with all the possibilities.
Maybe it’s my melancholy soul or maybe I’m just weird but I have always preferred cool, crisp, windy days and dreary, rain soaked days over bright, sunny, warm weather. And there is nothing that makes me happier or calms me more than a raging thunderstorm. (Ok yeah, so maybe I’m just strange)
So, with that being said, I think I am going to do a theme in my writing for this month….MAGIC! Because yeah, I’m feeling kinda fucking magical.
Happy Fall, everyone!!
p.s. On a side note, I’m thinking about only having one month at a time of entries posted. Meaning that once a month is over, all the posts from that month go “bye bye” and the only ones visible are the ones written in the current month. It’s all part of this minimalist mindset I’m exploring. I just think I have been progressively changing and I’m not one to hold on to the past much anymore. But I’m still considering it and haven’t decided yet.
