Creatively and spiritually I felt sluggish too. Maybe because the beginning of summer was abundant with it. Maybe I just got lazy. By mid month all of the routines I had been working to establish, like yoga and blogging and meditation were a struggle. But alas, September finally arrived! And it feels like August! I kid, it's slightly better but still pretty darn hot for Colorado but at least I'm feeling an upswing in energy again.
I have decided to do a mini 30 day challenge this month. Instead of writing it down and giving it so much outward acknowledgement, I'm just silently doing one positive thing every day that makes a BETTER ME. Simple, subtle, but the shift in mental energy is huge. So far it has been taking better care of my skin, getting up and taking a walk before Asher and Geof are awake, less wine and more lemon water, being a better listener, etc. September is one of my favorite months! It's the transition between summer and fall. It's my birthday month and the start of the season of Giving Thanks. I am thankful it has arrived!
