Happy spooky season y’all! It is October 1st and I am so pumped for fall, cool weather and alllllll the spooky stuff. However, you know me, I can’t move on into October without reflecting on September. I have definitely learned a lot in September and I am super grateful for it all. Here’s a look into what all I’ve learned-
- You get to design your own life. For me, it is so easy to let go of the things that I want to do and do things for other people. I would literally base my life around what I felt others were expecting me to do with my life. I did this for SO long. So long that I ended up feeling stuck and so unhappy. This led to some really rough times, not good decisions and a bad mindset overall. But once I finally broke myself out of the cycle and started designing my life to be what I wanted it to look like, I was able to break that mindset build things in a way that serve me.
- Your words carry far beyond how you feel when you say them. Things slip, we’re all human. But just remember that your words carry far beyond when you say them. How you’re feeling should never be an excuse for saying something unkind, not serving or unbecoming of yourself.
- All you can do at the end of the day is keep trying and keep being you. I used to be one giant ball of anxiety trying to hold myself to the expectations of others and myself. Once I started to let go of all of that and just simply try to be my best self each day, things got so much better.
So there it is! I am grateful for September and all that it brought into my life. It has been a season of so much change and while some things have been bittersweet, I know that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, for you too! So no matter what season of life you are in, just remember you are where you need to be. If you feel that longing that you are not, you also have the tools to make a change.
Let’s go out and make October the best month yet! Here’s to another month full of lessons, love and everything else in between.
All the love,
