September 2021 Reflections

Updated: Apr 28

Dear September 2021,

I hope this letter finds you well. It's lovely to see you again with all your glorious colors, delicious apples, and cool brisk days. I've gone ahead and rearranged my closet for Fall, bringing forward my sweaters, flannels, and long pants, even though it's still 90 degrees here in California. It's hard to break a Midwest girl of her habits, you know? Look, I'm gonna be honest...I was hoping after the summer we just had around here that I could bury my head in a pile of your autumnal leaves this month, but it seems that won't be an option. You've started off with a real bang in the US, haven't you? In only 3 days you've brought us catastrophic weather and flooding, unrelenting forest fires, a new law which sets women's rights back 50 years, and no end in sight for the COVID Delta variant. The headlines are grim my friend. What gives? I know, I know, it's not all on you. You're caught up in everything just like the rest of us. I can't blame you entirely. In fact, maybe I shouldn't be blaming anyone at all. That's not really helping anything, is it? You're right, you're right, my energy is better spent living my best life despite all the doom and gloom. My attitude is a choice I make each day. I can either choose misery or happiness. And since the world already has enough misery, why not choose to be happy? I can wake up each morning grateful for a new day, optimistic that things WILL get better, and filled with trust that the Universe is unfolding exactly as it should. I can remember that my soul chose to be here, in this lifetime, for a reason. I'm here to learn, love, and leave the world a better place than I found it. I can be the light that shines through all this darkness. I have that power within me. We all do. Whew! I feel better already. Thank you September...I needed this pep talk. Now back to my pumpkin latte. With gratitude, Kristen
