Solace in Seattle

Friday, October 5, 2018

I have seasons of wild, chaos, or slow.

But this season is none of the above.

This season is about finding middle ground.

Finding middle ground habits I've been enjoying:

Being okay with night's IN...I know, I know.

Using a paper planner for personal life and digital planner for work and not mixing it.

Work doesn't come home with me, or as often.

Writing.

Reading more.

Slow walks downtown and watching the leaves change colors.

Making the right friends and saying yes to the right things.

Mini road trips.

Saying positive things out loud about the people around me, often.

Texting my parents more often

Listening to podcasts each week.


Writing more gratitude & thank you cards.

Learning to take my time.

Opening my window to listen to the rain...the closest sound I have to waves of the ocean. 

Collages and art.

Playing with my new tarot card set.


It's been nice. Nice finding some solace in Seattle.

A beautiful Fall night

The extent of my Fall decorating: 3 pumpkins & Fallish flowers.

Nights like tonight are rare and beautiful in my world.

Before 7pm, I was curled up in my soft comforter under my twinkle lights drinking hot chocolate and breathing in the crisp fall air flowing through my windows. The breeze picked up and filtered in some chimney bonfire-like smoke that reminded me it was my favorite season of all: FALL.

I read. I watched tv. I baked cookies. I caught up with an old, but good friend. Sweet and savory moments in my new home.

AND

it is because I don't know how to relax when I am sick and I felt if I was productive (baking, reading academia, still responding to emails, and catching up on my phone list) that I'd feel better about being sick. I have issues. No, definitely still have issues ;)

None the less, a beautiful fall night.
