It's so typical for people to consider summer, winter, and spring to be their favorite month. Some people like the idea of a hot summer day, where you can hang out with friends on the beach and drink a couple of cool beers. Some people like the idea of a cool winter, where you can stay warm by the fireplace and drink a cup of hot cocoa. And oh- spring. We all know that everybody loves spring for it's floral wonders.
But why not fall?
Fall is an amazing season. On the first day of fall, September 21, you can start to see the leaves of the trees change into beautiful warm colors and finally... you can say goodbye to those hot sweaty days and say hello to the cool breeze! You'll get a mixture of both sunny, cloudy, and rainy days, but regardless of what the clouds are looking like, the freshness of the air still remains the same. This type of weather is the main reason why I love fall!
Because of this weather, we can now layer on clothes! We can start taking out those fall boots that we kept hidden during the summer and pair any outfit with a scarf. We can wear trench coats, pea coats, and heck.. even our North Face jackets! We can start wearing beanies with long sleeved shirts and look comfy. Oh! Don't forget! We can start using dark colors for our lips and nails.
And what about TV shows? Some of the best shows comes out during the fall! Like Walking Dead! :)
Beauty, fashion, and TV shows is just one aspect of why I love Fall. Don't get me wrong... I do love fall for its simplistic scenery. But I believe that fall is more than just falling leaves. For me, the meaning of fall is the metaphor of getting ready to start anew. We're in the phase of enjoying the times of rest, comfort, and reflection. It's the perfect time to make plans and goals for the following year and knowing how to achieve them.
So far, the cool breeze of this fall has been so inviting. Me and my dog, Balboa, have been taking long walks around the neighborhood to get the scent of fresh air. We have also been taking the time out to sit outside under the umbrella on our deck with a cup of coffee and just stare at the beauty of change. During these times when I'm outside, you can feel the positive energy from the air alone. It enables you to reflect on your life and see the goodness out of it. You can envision the beginning of a new task of what you want to do or what you want for yourself. And whatever this task may be, it makes you better. The positivity makes you stronger and more live to do anything you want for your life. You become more adventurous and you start to discover new habits that make you happier.
And this is why I love fall.
