Word on the street is that it autumn has arrived
Generally the meaning of fall is a bit different for me and involves a fair amount of pumpkin consumption BUT seeing as I am residing in a different country for the first time this time of year I thought I would replace the customary traditions (think early morning trip to the Balloon Fiesta) with a new notion.
If comfort is the word of winter, then enjoyment and simplicity are the words of the fall months. Simplicity is underrated, particularly in America where you have to have a multitude of options at your disposal at all time. When I say ‘you’ I suppose I actually just mean me in this particular instance.
At home, I am always changing the tv or radio channel to see what else is on, constantly perusing various websites on different tabs, always thinking of what I have to do next or what else I could be doing at the moment.
Sometimes you just reach a breaking point where you just have to force yourself to stop. drop. and roll.
And that particular breaking point would be if you are fire..
hahah but really, on a less dramatic note I am going to make a concerted effort to just BE, just enjoy every moment because I am only here for 5 months and I dont want to look back and wish I had appreciated it more because I tend to do that fairly often and it is SO frustrating.
That said, I am working on treasuring the ordinary.
A simple breakfast
Subtantial growth of my sweater drawer
Perfect running weather
The fact that I finally have a bike
Friends, both here
And I begin this new regard for basic luxuries with a Tuesday filled with beautiful nothing in particular.
