I have been experiencing a series of setbacks and let-downs lately. Combined with how hectic things have been and I have realized that I am just kind of going through the motions of day-to-day life without taking any time to appreciate all of the little things I love about this time of the year.
October through December is my favorite time of the year. To me it will always be kind of magical. I love the festivities, the celebrations, and the traditions. My plans for the next couple months include slowing down, taking some time to myself, remembering to be thankful for all of the little things that make everyday life special, focusing on getting some needed rest, and then regrouping. So here is to enjoying the rest of November and getting excited about the upcoming holidays.
So whether it is the smell in the air, the crunch of the leaves under my feet, or having cinnamon in my hot chocolate I am going to appreciate the little things in life and practice being grateful. After all it is the most wonderful time of the year.
