I know I’m a couple days late in welcoming fall – but I did have Pumpkin Spice Latte on Friday to commemorate the first day of fall. After going through summers in South Carolina, you’ll be excited as I am for fall days to come. For me fall just isn’t about football games, sweaters, PSL’s, cooler days – it’s about a new season in personal growth.
During the end of the summer months, I was transitioning into my new place and determining what I want to accomplish within the next 6 months to a year. Actually sitting down and looking at mistakes that I’ve made and goals that I have met are hard and can make you emotional, but it was necessary. Necessary to set myself up for success – I’m 31 years old and I have so much more to accomplish in life.
My goals this season ranges from physical fitness, eating healthy, reading more, educating myself on the next step in my career, financial freedom – a little of everything. I know that I won’t achieve everything in the next 3 months, but I can start the ball rolling now. I know that I’ve been slacking on my posting, but don’t worry it’s apart of my goals to achieve this season.
Therefore, don’t just think of Fall as the time to pull out your sweaters, Uggs and drink PSL’s. Think about the bigger picture and what you want for yourself. So that when the end of the year comes, you aren’t thinking that you wasted the months away. Now, don’t get me wrong you can still enjoy the essentials of what Fall has to offer – while still doing what you need to do to achieve greatness.
