Season of Change

I love autumn.  The crisp air.  The falling leaves.  The colors.  It's a beautiful time of year.

I'm taking the opportunity to make this beautiful time of year a beautiful time in my life.  I am getting back to what makes me "me" and no longer asking why all the time.  I'm branching out and saying...

Why not?

I'm back in the gym adding weight training to my regular running schedule.  I'm going back to my clean eating habits.  And I'm done making excuses and taking the "convenient" way out.  

I'm standing up for myself.  I'm cutting back on the things that I'm not passionate about so that I might focus on those most important to me.  

I sense a season of change rolling in.  Change in pace of life.  Change in priorities.  

I'm not one to accept change well.  I tend to avoid it.  Change creates anxiety in my life and causes me to stress over things that would typically not be stressors.  It makes me excited and scared at the same time.  The way I felt before moving to the south or walking down the aisle.  

Not bad feelings.  Different feelings.  Changing feelings.  

I'm taking time to stop and "smell the roses."  I'm enjoying a good cup of coffee.  I thrive on a game of fetch with my pups.  I'm relaxing on the couch more and running around less.  I'm branching out creatively and connecting with people with whom I share similar interests.  I'm worrying less and laughing more.  I'm not concerned with what others may think or say about what I'm wearing, who I'm with, or where I go.  

I'm opening up my heart and mind.  I'm ready to embrace whatever is in store for me.  I'm looking forward to this season.  I'm ready to embrace this season of change.

  2. * crap! deleted my comment by accident, but here it is again, lol

    I love this, Lindsey! I could use some more of stopping to smell the roses in my life as well and not being as concerned about what others think of me and what I'm doing. It is always a struggle, but I got your back if you ever need anything.
