Feeling rather uninspired I look beyond myself today for inspiration. There are no words in me to be shared. Nothing grand. But around me I see that fall has truly arrived. In it I look for ideas to fill both my blog and my life. Not that my life isn’t sufficiently filled by those everyday demands on our time, but I mean something a little different. I mean sparks of blissful contentment in the face of the everyday and the problems. I mean that beautiful golden maple out back when you’re feeling low. I mean that soft bloodhound puppy when you don’t want to leave home. I mean the perfect cup of chai tea when your throat is sore and you’re trying to check off your to-do list. The little things. Those little things that make this season special and unique and different from the others.
So here’s my fall challenge for the day: THE GREAT BIG FALL LIST.
1. Make a list of your favorite things about fall. Maybe 8-10.
2. Now add to it a bucket list of fall activities to do.
3. Illustrate your list by hand. Maybe scrapbooking, drawing, or painting.
4. Post this list where it can be seen and start doing it!!!
Take photos of the things you said you appreciate. Journal a few sentences about
them. If it’s leaves, start a leaf collection. Delve deeper into the appreciation of the
season. Do it with your friends, your family, your kids, your blog readers. I will be
sharing my own list soon!!!
