Since that last post, I have really had to just sit down, and think about what would be best for me at this time. Life has a way of becoming completely overwhelming all at once, so my goal has been to live on day at a time, and to find things that can clear my head. Of course, the first thing I thought was to spend more time in the mountains.
Utah has the most amazing mountains in the whole entire world, I am sure of it. There is no better place to go when you just want to clear your mind, and start over. My goal is to try and find my way into nature a couple times a week, so I can clear my head, and maybe write a little. There is nothing better than wandering into the mountains with a notebook in hand. I promise.
I have been so inspired by the lovely Nataly of art fawn. She is constantly exploring CA, and posting the most lovely pictures along the way. I want to be like that. I want that desire to explore again. Not just the city, but everything around me. I have said it before, but I constantly take for granted this beautiful state I live in, and all it has to offer. People travel from all around the world to come here, and I am ashamed that I spend so much of my time sitting around, and just being lazy. It is time to get exploring!
Something else that I have taken to trying due to the lovely Nataly is "the month of new". Basically, it is a goal to try or do something you wouldn't normally do every single day for the month of September. So far it has been such a good reminder to break out of the normal day routine, or just give something new a try. It can be anything! Either something I am usually too lazy to do, or something I might be scared of trying. I love that it has only been three days into this new goal, and I already feel like I am accomplishing things. If you want to be a part of this, go read the lovely words of Nataly herself here. She explains it a lot better than I do.
As usual, this has just been a lot of rambling, but that is kind of what usually ends up happening when I am given the freedom to write whatever I want. Oops. I hope everyone had a fabulous Labor Day weekend, and is ready for the start of a new week! Maybe I will actually post more than once this week. I make no promises...
