Fall! Fall! Fall! When I hear those words, my spirit does a little happy jump and I get just the tiniest bit giddy. I can smell the cinnamon, taste the pumpkin, feel the crisp air on my skin, and hear the crunch of crimson and gold leaves under my feet. Fall is one of my favorite things on this beautiful planet.
Like anything else though, it's so easy to breeze right on through Fall, going about our daily lives. We don't stop to smell the
It's easy to do. We spend so much time working and being busy that when we do have free time, we just want to lay in bed and do nothing. But if we don't get out there and enjoy all that the season has to offer- what everyday has to offer- we will surely regret it later.
So I have put together my own little Fall bucket list. These are things I want to do this Fall. It will take a concerted effort. I will have to do things when I am tired, and I will have to force myself to leave the house on my lazy Saturdays. But once I start, I know I'll be glad I did.
My list is simple. It doesn't have a ton of different activities on it, because let's be real- ain't nobody got time for a Fall bucket list with 50-100 different items on the list. Most adults are crazy-busy, and when given a huge list of fun things to do, it's easy to end up feeling like a boring loser if a bunch of things on the list are left undone. But Fall bucket lists are meant to create fun, not sadness over what was not accomplished.
So enjoy the simple things. Do what is fun to YOU, and do as much as you can of those things. But if winter rolls around and you haven't done as much as you would have liked, decide to be thankful for the fun you did have instead.
Happy October, wonderfuls! Make it fun and make it count!
