Winter is looming, but for now, appreciate the beauty that is right in front of us! Changing colors of the leaves, crunchy leaves on the ground, scent of the camp fire simmering, roasting marshmallow over the open fire, and on and on... Inhale. Exhale. Stay present! SET A GOAL!
Back to School is my favorite time of year. It was as a kid & it is as a parent as well. I love FRESH clothes, FRESH school supplies & FRESH GOALS. This year in particular, I realized that in order for goals to become reality one is better off to write the goal down, say the goal out loud, and pause for a moment to really visualize that goal coming to fruition, really see that goal come alive in the minds eye!
I will be continuing to work on my FALL FRESH START initiative. The first official week of the fall season was dedicated to HOME. Some of the goals that I checked off the list were: getting the car detailed(b/c our car is like a home on wheels), decluttering with expert advice from Marie Kondo, making appointments to have the windows & carpets/couches cleaned, and making good use of calendars to map out a timeline for my FALL FRESH START goals. @feelingsfitness #feelingsfitnessfallfreshstart
I'm not going to lie, I started out this book thinking, "what in the world have I just embarked on?" And then I let the "subtle art" sink in. So many "counterintuitive" words of wisdom in this book. I continue to ponder the pearls, the hidden gems, of this book. What an interesting approach to "living a good life." I think my favorite line might be..."This book will not teach you how to gain or achieve, but rather how to lose and let go. It will teach you to take inventory of your life and scrub out all but the most important items. It will teach you to close your eyes and trust that you can fall backwards and still be okay." p.22
With all the back to school germs spreading around, I have instituted lots of "Thieves" into our routine. Diffuse Thieves in the house. Roll a homemade roller of Thieves & Purification onto the souls of the feet morning & night. Clean countertop with Thieves multipurpose cleaner. I know we won't be able to completely avoid the germs, but we can certainly do our best to keep them at bay.
