Come on! It wouldn’t be me if we didn’t have one of these weekly posts all about Autumn!
Last week you may have spotted I didn’t do a week in a word post. This is because nothing really happened! As I said in the post before, my mental health has taken a bit of a beating and so last week was spent trying to repair the damage. I hope you all understand that this led to a very boring week to write about. BUT I’M BACK NOW!
One thing I have noticed this week is that I have been starting to feel more excited about the changing seasons and the upcoming festivities. Maybe this is because I am being more mindful and therefore I am noticing the leaves changing colour and the air getting cooler. As a result, I have been starting to decorate the house with pine cones, conkers and anything else I can find which reminds me of Autumn. Combine these with some twinkly lights and you’re good to go!
Autumn – oh how I love you!
For those of you who hadn’t guessed. This is without a doubt my favourite time of year. It’s the whole reason the blog has the name it does! When else do you see crunchy leaves on the ground?!
Something I have started to do this week is work on my Autumn bucket list. This has really got me in the mood for the season and also is keeping me very much in the moment. The world is so colourful this time of year and I love it. Some of my favourite photos are from the Autumn. And don’t forget that glorious scene in ‘When Harry met Sally‘ when they walk through Central Park surrounded by the autumnal trees – lush! I haven’t watched that film yet this year but never fear, it’ll be going on soon!
For my regular readers, you may have noticed I have had a few guest posts on the blog recently. I’m hoping this is going to be a regular weekly feature and I have some amazing people lined up to write some fantastic Autumn posts over the next few weeks. These will be going out on Sunday evenings so watch this space! I am also working on a couple of collabs with some more awesome bloggers which I can’t wait to share with you in the near future.
New Season, New Start
Most people will agree with me when I say that autumn always feels like a fresh start, even if you aren’t going back to school for a new term. I think this is why I have been feeling more positive this week. The idea of a fresh start and being able to draw a line under the past few months. It’s nice to remind myself that every day is a new start, and that I shouldn’t let what happened yesterday affect today.
So I feel like I have turned a corner with my mental health and wellbeing. The start of Autumn has sparked positive feelings and a sense that anything is possible. I can’t wait for the coming months and all that is planned during them.
