This morning the air is crisp and cool and a crow was cawing on the hillside. It feels like fall is here. I hope it’s not just a short visit but a long settling in. My motivational thoughts start brewing when the weather changes. All of the ideas start blooming when my flowers aren’t anymore.
Soon there will be orange and yellow leaves drifting from the trees. There will be fire pits burning and pumpkins for baking and sweaters and scarves to wrap around me. I am really looking forward to the sweaters and scarves because my fall wardrobe is way better than my summer one.
There’s something about fall that seems just as inspiring as spring when it’s purpose is the exact opposite. (Maybe even more so.) In spring everything is new and coming to life. In fall everything is dying but it never seems that way to me. It’s more like the earth is trying to live simply for a while. De-cluttering and making a bare bones or rather branches approach to the coming months. Maybe my motivational thoughts are really telling me to get some of the clutter out of my house and life and make room for some new ideas.
October starts soon and I hope to participate in the Inktober challenge. I do so love pen and ink!
I have more events coming up this fall where you can catch me in person. Check out my events page for more details. I hope you will stop by for a chat.
Are you excited about fall too? How does nature inspire your motivational thoughts?
