As always, I have felt and experienced many things this month.
I am excited about new beginnings,
being creative and free,
and taking control of my future.
I feel loved and needed, and it’s better than nice.
And I never want the feeling to cease.
I see what’s going on in the world and I want to be an agent for change.
A warrior for peace.
Even if it always feels like a losing battle.
I feel nervous and vulnerable, but brave.
And reserved over the end of summer,
it’s casual elegance once again tucked away until next year.
I simply don’t know where the time has gone.
But I’m ready for autumn, and her shorter days.
Heavy fabrics and rich colors.
And excited about all I have accomplished and what lies ahead.
Wishing everyone a pleasant September, and fantastic fall.
Sometimes I feel tired and depressed.
And sometimes I think no matter how hard I try, no matter what I do, I will never get it all done.
I won’t succeed.
But then I think about the movers and shakers of the world.
I think about all the amazing things they accomplish and how they influence the world in a positive way.
I think about how I have the same number of hours in the day as they do.
And then I think about the opportunities and good fortune I have had. And how many of those who have accomplished so much maybe were not as blessed as I have been.
How maybe they had to do so much all on their own. Without money. Without an education. Without unconditional love and support.
But they did it anyway. Every single thing they set out to do.
They had and continue to have the power to do amazing things.
You do, too.
So do I.
Do you want to come alive?
I know I do.
So here’s to being and coming alive.
And the future feeling extra bright today.
