Tonight, I decided to take time away from the house, and venture out onto the back deck with my cup of hot tea and just be still. That’s where I am now infact. The sky is clear, the stars shining and the moon almost full. The wind is gently blowing, the leaves crackling as the wind jostled them against one another, and crickets chirping in the distance. It’s fall, my favorite season. The leaves are changing to beautiful oranges and reds, the weather having a light chill in the air. Perfection. If I could live somewhere with fall-like weather I would.
Today I have taken more time for myself that I usually do. I took a little time away this afternoon to sit looking at the pond, listening to my iPod and writing. Writing is something I enjoy doing, I just have been rather bad at it. I journal maybe once per month, Maybe twice. As odd as it may sound, I don’t feel as connected with my blog as I do my journal, but blogging is far more convenient. Anywhooo, I have just been doing a lot of reflecting lately, mostly inside my head as the day goes by, but today I have really sat down to think about it. Think about what I’m grateful for I guess I would say. I’m usually a very positive person and I still am but I’m not sure I have actually taken time lately to reflect on life, really reflect and ponder on it, and appreciate how blessed I am.
