With weather like today here in Georgia, it’s safe to say that Fall is upon us. As I was leaving work yesterday morning the temperature was a brisk 50 degrees and I was definitely unprepared for the chill that overcame me. I feel like this year more than most everyone has been anxiously awaiting the Fall Season for a variety of reasons, one including that it is already October and this is the first week we are actually noticing a temperature change from this summer.
Besides the cool weather that defines the coming of Fall, I’m most excited about the overall aura. To me, Fall is memories of Fridays at high school football games which has now become Saturdays spent watching Auburn play. Fall is flannel, oversized sweatshirts, the classic “boots and leggings” look that classifies my entire seasonal wardrobe. Fall is a visit to my favorite pumpkin patch, the start of haunted houses and enjoying corn mazes and bonfires with family and friends. Fall is snuggling, s’mores, scary movies, Halloween and candy corn, the BEST scented candles, Thanksgiving, cinnamon sticks, crockpot meals, and pumpkin EVERYTHING. Pumpkin carving, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins and my new obsession from AdvoCare: Pumpkin Spice Meal Replacement Shakes.
This season already has me thinking: “How blessed am I?” To be able to enjoy this season for what it is and be able to experience all of these wonderful things that Fall brings. I am blessed beyond what I deserve. I have incredible jobs, one that I get to help SO many children and families another that I help people change their health and their life on so many levels. I have a loving husband, a healthy family, food in my fridge and a roof over my head. I am only just beginning to realize how much I love this season and what it means to me.
So this year, instead of waiting until the holidays, I’m challenging myself everyday to reflect on all the things I’m thankful for. Every day, thinking about and praying for all the people in this world who aren’t as fortunate as I am to experience all the joys and thanksgivings that come along with this beautiful season.
