“The crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last for ever. Even on the most beautiful days in the whole year – the days when summer is changing into autumn – the crickets spread the rumor of sadness and change.”
―E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web (As a child
adult I loved the book & animated movie). I am proud to say I’ve never killed a spider.
Doesn’t it feel different already? We’re in that in between stage – not quite summer (even though it is officially still summer) but not quite fall. Temperature is a bit cooler and it gets darker earlier. Just giving us a little glimpse of what to Fall for. I actually don’t mind it as much as I thought. I’m all for a little change as long as it’s not too too sudden or disturbing. I’m trying to embrace change. Not crazy life changing change….just little changes here and there that are healthy and positive.
For starters exercise and diet – and it’s not even New Year’s Eve! I’m starting early. That’s not to say I don’t look after myself by getting proper exercise (I do) and eating as well as I can but I’m making an effort to do it better and more effectively. I’m kick starting this because I’m of no use to the important people in my life or anyone else if I’m not in top notch health myself.
I believe in looking after yourself as best you can and keeping your house in order. Otherwise things can get out of control.
I’m exploring some alternative methods of relaxation like meditation to help improve sleep and anxiety. I’m looking into acupuncture….just because I believe it can help with a multitude of symptoms. Not just for myself.
Getting back to reading. By that I mean….books. I have too many gathering dust up on the shelf.
Getting rid of excess. Going through clothing and other items that I no longer have use for. A few of these are bigger ticket items like condos & cars (possibly).
Dancing for exercise, enjoyment, expression, social and fun.
Language for communication & the mind (it is said to help prevent alzheimers).
Philanthropy because it feels good to help those more “in need”.
I’m researching some things on my own. I will look forward to sharing them with you in the upcoming months. I hope to bring more inspiring posts to this page over time. That is the main purpose of having this blog. By keeping track of things that inspire, make a difference and improve life mixed in with the usual fashion and fun.
Only make sure they’re GOOD surprises!
