THOUGHTFUL SPOT// New pencils. 

August 31, 2016

As the summer draws to a close I’m reminded that Autumn is just around the corner.

Autumn is my favourite time of year. September brings with it so many good feelings. So many amazing memories. I’m reminded of days when going back to school was so exciting; new pencils and paper to be bought and seeing your friends again after weeks of long summer days of freedom. Back to a routine and familiarity. It’s also a time that brings me to a place of fresh starts; new beginnings. Maybe it’s associated with a new school year and a new term? I’m not sure why. I guess I should really feel like that in the new year, but I never do. I always feel this way in September. It’s my birthday too this month, which has always been a happy time. September is my month.

It’s funny how the changing of the seasons and even just moving into a new month of the year, can give you a new lease of life. New hope. It’s when we get to start over and to try again. Maybe things have been tough. Maybe things have been great. Whatever it has been, as we move through the year, we are all moved to different feelings and emotions. Each month brings with it memories, anniversaries and a sense of nostalgia.

When you struggle mentally or physically, the days can sometimes seem endless. It sometimes feel like the pain will never end. But it is truly my experience, that by the forces of nature and the universal good, things never stay the same. They never stay bad for too long. The good days always come.

As we move into a new month and a new season, be thankful to see another season roll around and try to have new hope. Try to remember that nothing lasts forever. Good always comes eventually. Try taking a trip down memory lane to a time when you were happy and free and at peace. Feel the feeling of that memory. Let it fill you up. Let the memory alone give you a sense of happiness and hope.  Then remember to be grateful for the small things. Whether that’s getting out of bed some days. Or spending time with those you love.

Summer days are the best. Warm long evenings are my favourite. But knowing that Autumn is just around the corner, brings me so much peace. Like the busyness of the spring and summer are starting to wind down, and we can relax into the journey toward winter and cold crisp days.

Everything has its time. Time passes whether we like it or not. These days it seems to pass quicker than ever. I remember when I was little my pap saying to me,”Enjoy these days whilst you’re young. As you get older, everything goes so much quicker. So enjoy it now.” He was right. When years used to seem to take forever to roll around, now they seem to pass in a flash. So maybe that’s another reminder. A reminder to be grateful for each day. They fly by.

I hope you’re all ready with your cosy cardigans, scarves and plenty of new pencils. Enjoy the fresh start. And always have hope in your heart.

Onwards my loves, Kiki xox.
