This post is a little less profound than the last, but who doesn’t love a good mood-board-style picture montage?
Autumn is my favourite season. I like its when its cold; I like it when it’s bright; I like wearing wooly scarves and hats and socks. As you can now imagine, I loved putting together my autumn Pinterest board. I know, I get it, it’s practically winter now – all the more reason to post this now and not next week.
So, aside from all the cuddly and cosy bits and bobs that come with it, why is autumn the best season going?
I’ll tell you why.
Because no matter how long ago you left school, autumn marks a new year. It might not be a new school year anymore, but you just try to tell me you don’t still get that fresh start feeling when autumn rolls around. You can’t. Because it’s not true. And god I need that fresh start feeling this autumn (I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again – I am content in my life, my work, my relationships. It’s just my brain and my way of thinking that needs a little bit of refresh).
Wasn’t it great though – the start of a new school year? New pencil case, new school notebooks, new student planner, new pens, new school bag. If I was lucky, a new pair of school shoes in which I would strut back through those school gates thinking “this is it, this is my year, I’m going to make this year my bitch”. Don’t get me wrong, the feeling had worn off by the time it got to January, heading back after the Christmas holidays. But still, there was always next year.
So there it is, why Autumn is the best of all the seasons. Have a think about all the autumny things you love so we can keep this feeling going before the impending winter kicks in.
Until next time,
