A conversation with a recent acquaintance reminded me of the power of the human mind. Okay, I know that sounds a wee bit dramatic, but the gist of the conversation was the mind’s unique ability to mold reality with thought. For instance, autumn is usually my least favorite time of the year (for a number of reasons that defeat positive thinking to post). However, this year I have made a concerted effort to embrace the change of season– to marvel at the leaves falling, to take solace in the warmth of a new sweater, new smiles, and delicious pumpkin ales. This very deliberate and going-against-the-way-I-normally-think way of thinking started back in August (I figured it was best to start early) and I have to say… drum roll please… it’s actually working!! I am having a blast this fall and my determined decision to see my current situation in a new light, has actually made the original light shining on it brighter. Pretty cool!
On that note, I thought I’d share this adorable little necklace by Stacy of Goodthings88 on Etsy. When I was a kid I used to sit in my backyard and marvel that these adorable little nuts could turn into a tree… so not only is the necklace super-cute and made by a Boston-based designer, it’s also symbolic of fall’s potential… and yours!
