In correlation with a post I made in August, regarding Autumn and some ways in which I brought joy upon myself, (you can read this post here: Don’t Fall out with Autumn), I thought I’d make a habit throughout the Autumn and Winter months of displaying some of the small things that make me happy, or things to be thankful for of which often get overlooked in the brisk hustle and bustle of our every day lives. I do hope this post will offer some form of joy to you and enable you to identify examples pertaining to your own share of sprightliness.
As I’m sure everyone is aware by now (if not, then you’re probably arriving late for work and appointments tehehe) the clocks have changed, meaning that us Brits have gone back to GMT from BST, reminding us of the fact that we’re back in the Autumn and Winter months. Days will grow colder and shorter and for many their moods will wilt along with nature. It doesn’t have to be seen as a negative, however! With Autumn comes some fantastic annual holidays such as Halloween and Christmas, full of love, togetherness and cheer. Lots of good grub, crackling fires, seasonal drinks, conkers, crunchy leaves and a different view of the enchanting nature around us are now in abundance. It can be easy to want to stay wrapped up in our covers and let the world pass by around us but if you get nicely wrapped up, then the world outside of our bedroom is just as enticing. During an often mundane Monday I have today been embarking on a few simple yet uplifting projects to kickstart my motivation and brighten my surroundings.
