I feel like I’m always losing time. I could swear I was just pulling out my flip-flops from their winter hiding place and planning all the awesome things I was going to do in the sunny summer months. Now, I’m scouring my sweater shelves for something to keep me warm as the crisp fall air is blowing in, and thinking of all the things I didn’t make time to do.
I need to start living in the moment more, stop thinking about what happens next, and stop wishing I had more time to do things, and just start DOING them. Fall is my FAVORITE season, but it’s also a quick one. I’ve learned that if you don’t take time to enjoy it, all the leaves will be gone, and we’ll be decking the halls with Christmas lights before you blink an eye!
So, this year, I’ve made a To-Do list of things I always love to do, things I wish I’d made time for last year, and things I’ve never done before:
I’m going to hang it on my refrigerator as a reminder to “stop and smell the roses (or pumpkins!).” This Fall, I’m going to make time to enjoy the season with family, friends, and lil’ ol’ me.
Want to do it with me? Print out the to-do list or create your own! What’s your favorite Fall-thing to do?
