Embracing the Season

As summer comes to an end and cold weather takes over, it’s easy to feel blue. We begin to think about how much better life was when it was warm- counting down the days until 70 degree weather comes back.

Every year, winter takes a huge affect on my well-being. I dread leaving the house, cancel plans often, and fall into lazy routines. Now that autumn has begun, I already feel myself falling into this trap.

I fear the cold weather and all it brings.

This blog post is as much for me as it is for others. I refuse to feel how I usually do in the painfully cold weather.

That being said, my motto for this fall & winter is-

“there is a season for everything”

I can’t control the weather. I will learn this year to embrace the season for what it is. Each one brings a unique gift. It is unhealthy to spend my life wishing for one season.

To help prevent this fall/ winter sadness, I am creating a bucket list for each season, My hopes are that it will help me get in the true spirit of the season. Feel free to use it as well!
