fall…this week that word has many meanings in my book. fall… as in my favorite time of year.. and fall as is balancing the line of not letting things fall apart.
now, i am a particularly positive person. but we all have those days or weeks… sometimes months where things are just slowly tearing at the seams. welcome to my week. i have been pulled in too many different directions this week with work, friends & family. maybe spread myself too thin to try and please everyone. and i have reached the breaking point. i am looking forward to a weekend with people i love. but sometimes there is a little beauty in the breakdown.
it is been a bittersweet week for me as well. this time of year for the past two years, i have been heading to my favorite place in the world, my home…scotland. and it’s right about now that im wishing more than ever to be there. the carefree traveling lifestyle is addicting and my withdrawls are in full effect. i miss my beautiful friends who taught me its ok to be me. i miss the humble cities- content in the routine they have fallen into. and i miss the complete happiness i felt being there. for now missing scotland will have to do. and i do everyday.
true to myself, i need to look on the bright side. it is officially autumn tomorrow. 🙂 my favorite time of year. i can smell it in the air. i can see the leaves getting ready for their new color scheme. the flavors of cinnamon & spice filling coffee shops and restaurants menus. the crisp morning air gives you that extra wake up from lazy summer days. invigorating us all so we have the energy to make it through the holiday season. it couldn’t come at a more perfect time for me. thank you for giving me the smile i needed today.
life goes on. it changes. bad things happen to good people… but i’ve learned remaining positive in times when it seems impossible helps you rise above. so thats what i’ll do. deep breath …
