I awake to the sounds off Crows gossiping outside my window. One said ” mate last night was epic, we really showed those Magpies a thing of two”.. The other croaked something that sounded like me after a few vodkas and cranberry…””yea we raised the roof” . That was 7:15 and I’m still counting!! Shaking that episode off I’ve had my morning brew of Columbian Mountain, fed the animals now they snoring and dreaming of chasing the local Pussie. I fear for them!
With that said. I’m feeling blessed to see another day dawning and feeling optimistic for the week ahead. The beginning of Autumn/Fall and ending of Summer always brings fresh thinking and some sadness. For the memories of those long nights, laughing and hanging with friends have passed and our focused has changed towards roosting and making plans for the Christmas holidays. Yes. I said that word, it’s frightening but it’s only three months away and whilst we still have Halloween and Thanksgiving to come, one is preparing my living room for the pending tree. It’s has a fine position by the window and I’m clearing out the clutter to make space.
But for Today, I’m preparing my plans in pursuits of my happiness. I have had this plan for years, it’s constantly revolving but it’s brought me wonderful pleasure and new challenges. It’s transformed my thinking and encouraged my determination. I have continued to work on blocking out any ‘negative thinking’ that continues to try and intrude in my thoughts. I’ve recovered those lost energies that I spent years putting into others and I’ve embraced my soul and being alone.

Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love — that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a pefect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot, letter to Miss Lewis, 1st October 1841
Life is like a window, every time you look out you see something new, something you missed before, something that entices your interests and awakens your soul. When you learn to love yourself, yes, it’s a cliche but it’s true, your whole perspective changes and you feel more hopeful. My struggles don’t change me only my attitude towards them and how I deal with those challenges. So today I’m taking a fresh outlook for the week ahead. I have business to build, family to grow and dreams to fulfil.
Today I want you to make a list of your hopes and desires, then tick off the ones you feel you have achieved, underline the ones pending and re-edit the ones you feel at unobtainable because believe me those are the ones that will hold you back the most. Those are the unrealistic ones. I know, I’ve tried to set them myself and failed. Simply put, they are the dreams you see in others that won’t fit you but you insist on including them because you feel your soul needs them, but I guarantee you if you look at them again and then look at what you have, you may find that many already exist within you and with you but the way you view them is what needs adjusting.
Shhhhh.. Take so time out .. Embrace what you have, enjoy your loved ones and prepare yourself to take on whatever the world throws to you this week. Just ‘be the change you want to see in the world’.
Loving you,loving me xoxo
