Fall is here!! If you've been reading this blog for a while, or know me personally, you would know that I LOVE Fall! It's the season of change, and I'm not just talking about the leaves. It's the perfect season for personal change; for those little improvements you want to make in your life to help sharpen your character. Some of you may have started school again, but for those of us whose school days are now behind us, it doesn't mean we have to stop honoring that "back to school" feeling; fresh school supplies, new clothes, a new mindset, and goals set for ourselves to help us become who we want to be by next Summer. Have you set any goals for yourself this season?
1: Simplify my wardrobe
2: More Home Cooked Meals
3: Spend Alone Time
It's been a tough year. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with my own thoughts and I don't like being a downer so I often suppress those thoughts due to work, friends, my relationship, just my daily schedule. But I've been finding myself wanting to be alone a lot recently; to read, play my guitar, cook, work on the blog, paint my nails, you know just those simple things you do when you're alone. I need it.
4: Body Focus
I started talking ballet classes in the Spring, and I LOVE it! It's a great work out and it may be the only work out where you leave feeling prettier and more feminine. Just the way you have to move your body, the grace and focus that comes with it is very calming. I've been slacking on my consistency though, skipping a class here and there. Though I know I'll never be the next Polina Seminova, I would love to really get into the art of ballet and focus on my body more this season. Currently I'm taking classes at Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, they have awesome adult beginners classes and even provide pilates and contemporary dance.
5: Work on the blog.....no seriously....I mean it.....
I know what you're thinking: "Yeah, yeah, yeah......she always says that." But seriously, I would love nothing more than to get back into it. I've been brainstorming new ideas, have had a couple meetings with some awesome new connections, and want to make a couple of changes to the ol' TPL. It's time. My mom wanted me to continue writing, so I must.
Here's to a brand new beginning and making those little improvements. Hope you're Fall is lovely. XO
