I’ve always been a summer person, and as the season begins to transition to fall, it sometimes tends to bring me down a bit. I do love fall and everything that comes with it, but it’s the foreboding sense of winter’s chill that hangs over me. Less sunlight can mean less energy, and the winter months are known to cause Seasonal Affective Disorder, something I definitely tend to suffer from in winter. But this year I want to embrace fall. I want to fully enjoy the magic of this season, even its tiniest details like the stunning change of colors in the leaves. It’s breathtaking if you think about it, and it’s also so fleeting (much like the blooming of cherry blossoms in spring). I want to spend as much time as possible outdoors, appreciating the fact that I can still wear lighter layers without freezing, and relish in the cozy sweaters and socks and beanies that come with the season. I’ve found that I get so caught up in my love of summer, that I forget to truly appreciate the beauty that is fall. Today, embrace fall for everything it holds. Go apple picking, collect some leaves (and paint them!) and admire their beautiful shades of rust, gold, and burnt sienna. Take an evening walk bundled up in your favorite sweater and listen to the leaves crunching beneath your feet.
What’s your favorite way to spend a fall day?
