It’s 1:30am. It’s Tuesday, well I suppose it’s actually Wednesday. Regardless, September is here. The summer has come and gone, and Fall is making its way into our lives. And along with Fall comes new beginnings. (and pumpkin spice lattes!)
September always reminds me of a new start. I don’t know if that’s weird or not. Considering just a few months later, we ring in the new year. But, I guess it has to do with the school year. In September, we begin a new season and a new school year, or semester. At least I am. I just started my classes last week, and I couldn’t be happier about being back in school. Taking the Summer off was nice, but I’m more motivated when I’m enrolled in school. I wish I could be a professional student. But yeah, with school comes scheduling and back to living a more organized life. (I srsly need to order an Erin Condren planner already!) So, hopefully I’ll get back to churning out more blog posts again. My poor little blog, how I have neglected thee over the last two years. But, I was really unhappy and depressed for over a year, (not anymore!) and in a bad place in my life, and I just was so unmotivated to blog. Additionally, I had such a lack of support in relation to my writing and blogging from the person I was dating at the time. And oddly enough, that made it harder for me to blog here. Enough about that though!
Life feels pretty magical right now. At least, it feels like there is more magic entering my life right now. I love that word so much. Magic….I think I’d like it tattooed on me. Back to what I was saying, I feel like there is a big shift happening in my life at the moment, and it’s a pretty interesting feeling. I’m not trying to look into it too much, I rather just go with the flow. Or at least try to. My latest goal in life is to live in the present moment. Sounds easier said than done my friends. But, meditation is helping me work towards that goal. But, it’s definitely a struggle to just be in the moment. I’m aware that this might come off as a bit weird, I guess I can’t really explain it in words. (and I claim to be a writer? ha!)
On a related note, I think tomorrow I’m going to do a post on my journey with meditation. I’d like to share more about that with you. And give you some recommended reading and links etc. As well as, get some insight on the topic from any of you who have some to share. Or maybe you have questions for me about my personal experiences with meditation, I’d love to answer some of those too. I mean I don’t want anyone to think I’m claiming to be some spiritual leader or anything like that. I’m just finally at a place where I feel like I can start sharing this part of my life with you. At first it was a bit of a daunting task, because it’s a bit of a private thing on one hand, and I also don’t want to come off like I’m trying to be some yogi genius or all enlightened. Because I’m so not. That’s decades away. I’m still very new at this, and still learning and evolving in the process. But, I’m finally comfortable enough with it that I am feeling open to writing about it. I promise you won’t catch me closing off my blog posts with “Namaste” or anything like that! HAHA.
Enough rambling! I’m not even sure what I just typed, but I’m not going to go back and look over it because I’m sure I’d get embarrassed and delete it or something. LOL.
Oh yeah, tonight I bought a super comfy oversized buttondown sweater (pictured above) and cotton leggings, and it’s what I plan on living in from now on. It sorta makes me feel like one of the women writer characters in a Woody Allen film, and I absolutely love it.
