Hello my lovely Truuties,
In some countries, autumn is a season that can sometimes seem dull. In some countries, it’s the best season ever! Although I’m in rainy England (personally I love the rain though…but not when it’s to do with natural disasters…), I think there is so much beauty in it so today I’m going to share with you some things that have helped me to really value and ‘spice up’ the season! Whether you love it already or not, hopefully, this could give you a few ideas! 🙂
♥ Enjoy the outdoors – There is so much to discover during autumn. The leaves fall with crispness and colour, the air feels fresh, the wildlife is gorgeous, you can wrap up and feel cosy and just admire the autumnal atmosphere of the outdoors. As you can see in some of these photos, I went on a little bike ride with my mum, which was so lovely! Also, last week I went on a nice walk with my dad and we came up with some great conker puns – it was a load of fun! (‘Conker-ing my fears’ etc…)
♥ Hot drinks – A good hot chocolate is something I always look forward to. Whatever your prefered hot beverage is, I do suggest warming-up cosily with it and taking some time to relax. It is so lovely to have a hot drink on a cold day and to treat yourself to that exquisite deliciousness!
♥ Embrace the nostalgia – I don’t know about you, but sometimes, during autumn, I catch a moment of nostalgia. There’s something in the atmosphere and recognisable-ness of the season that creates memories with such clarity that I often feel nostalgic about things that have happened in past autumns. It’s a beautiful thing. So if you ever feel that kind of nostalgia, please, don’t let it go right away – I think it is wonderful to embrace that feeling for a little moment.
♥ Positivity – Instead of thinking, ‘It’s so dull and rainy.’ perhaps we could change that for a, ‘I love seeing the seasons change!’? Honestly, I think there is so much to be positive about during autumn! I mean, just read through this list; there’s a lot of wonderfulness about this season! 🙂
♥ Savour every moment – Let’s not get lost thinking about what we’re about to do next all the time. It’s something I’ve struggled with a lot but I’m gradually learning to fully live in the ‘now’ because I know that every moment is so precious! You know what? This year’s autumn will never come again – why let it pass without savouring each and every moment?
♥ Excitement without the rush – CHRISTMAS IS COMINGGGG!!!! I do love Christmas…a lot. But I want to make the most of this autumn without rushing on to the Christmas vibes. As exciting as it is, autumn has wonders of its own so I’m going to be excited without ignoring the beauty of now. 🙂
♥ Be inspired – Nature can give us lots of inspiration. For example, if you love writing poems, maybe having a look at the autumnal outdoors could give you some ideas for a poem! I’ve got some inspiration for blog posts! 🙂 Maybe you love photography or something more academic like maths or science…whatever you love doing, I’d like to encourage you to try and find some inspiration from the season of autumn!
♥ Colours – Well aren’t the autumn colours simply stunning and so beautiful? The reds, oranges, yellows, greens, browns or if I’m fancier – auburns and golds! If you’re like me and love some fashiony stuff – go dive into the season and incorporate the natural colours into your style! If you’re an artsy person, you could use those colours in your work!
♥ Learn – There is so much to learn from the seasons! I found a quote which reads…
Autumn, the season that teaches us that change can be beautiful. ~Heather A. Stillufsen
♥ Be you – Most of all, please don’t enjoy autumn the way everyone else does. Enjoy it in a way that you love the most. Sometimes, it might seem like we all need to love Pumpkin Spiced Lattes or aesthetic things to have a good autumn. If you like that kind of thing – great! If you don’t, that’s great too! 🙂 We’re all different so I think we need to spend this season in the way that suits us best.
I hope you will all have or are having a lovely autumn! 🙂
Lots of love,
I would love to hear from you in the comments!
