Back to Basics

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Fall is coming.  The air is cooler, the sun is setting earlier, football has started.

This past winter was rough, but I can't help but get a little excited to feel fall in the air again.

It has always been my favorite season and I think a huge part of that is because it has always been a time of new beginnings.  Back to school, my birthday, new wardrobe... lots of good things tend to happen in the fall.

I finally feel like I'm getting settled again and I can get back into some routines.  I will be the first to admit that I fall out of routines quite regularly, but I don't hold it against myself.  More often than not any disruptions are caused by something bigger or better taking precedence so it's almost always worth it. 

But now it's time to refocus.  I'm somewhat settled back in at my parent's house (still mostly living out of a garage but I at least have my own space).  I'm slowly working my way back into running.  I'm making sure I spend some time each day for blogging and more importantly, writing.

It just feels good to be doing all of the things I love again.  Yes, I actually thought to myself yesterday "I love running."  I don't think I've ever said that before, but having gone so long without a run made me realize that I really enjoy just having that time to myself and feeling my body do something other than sit. 

I know there will be times when one or all these things fall by the wayside again, but I know I will eventually find my way back to them like I always do.  I think it might even be the break from them that makes me appreciate them as much as I do.
