Fall Inspiration

Hi there!

I just wanted to pop in and share a few of my favorite quotes out of the many that I am hoarding on a seasonal Pinterest board. Fall is easily my favorite time of year, and I am looking forward to wearing sweaters in 90 degree weather. (It tends to not get cold where I live so I like to pretend.) Anyway, here they are:

“The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let things go– Unknown

This quote is honestly so beautiful. I know so many people see spring as the season of new beginnings, but I also feel this way about fall. If you know the owner and/or author of this quote, please let me know!

“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of first September was crisp and golden as an apple.” – J.K. Rowling

This beautiful quote was written by the one and only J.K. Rowling in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Not only is she one of my greatest inspirations, but I am also a dedicated potter head. I have read the entire Harry Potter series twice and I plan to read it again this fall if I have time. (Btw I am a proud member of the Hufflepuff community.)

“I’m so glad to live in a world where there are Octobers” -L.M. Montgomery

I particularly love this quote considering; Halloween! My sister’s and I are planning to host our 2nd annual Halloween party and I am beyond excited. Also, my birthday falls on Oct. 23rd, so of course October would be my favorite month. 🙂

“Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.” -Shira Tamir

While most people view leaves as an eyesore, I think they are beautiful. Especially watching them flow down a vacant street on a cool fall day.

“And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep and autumn was awakened.” – Raquel Franco

I apologize for the excessive use of the word leaves in this post, but this is my top favorite. Raquel Franco has so many beautiful writings, I highly recommend that you check out her work.

Thanks for reading. 🙂

Q: What are some of your favorite quotes for fall? Feel free to share!

Feeling Uninspired? Me too

Hi there, it’s me again. If you have forgotten about me or this space by now, I understand. It’s been a little under six months since the last time I posted. I’ve been pondering on what I would say once I came back, or if I would even come back at all. I wish I had some exciting new pictures to share or stories from different places that I’ve been but that is so unrealistic.

Just as the title of this article states, I have been experiencing a serious writing/creative block these past couple of months. I guess that’s on me; I haven’t really done much other than work and prepare for this upcoming year. I’m already a junior, how did that happen? When I first started this blog, I was only a freshman in college, trying to make sense of everything around me as well as myself. While I am still figuring these things out day by day, a part of me wishes that I could go back to that small space in the corner of my dorm freshman year and start all over again.

I have since deleted almost all of my posts. Why is that? Honestly I’m not even so sure myself. I feel like a lot of it had to do with insecurity and fear that someone was going to not like my writing. If I’m being honest, none of that really matters to me now. It took me a while to realize that no matter what I do or say, I can’t control anyone’s attitude toward me. There are some posts that are so special to me, I wish I would have never gotten rid of them. Maybe I will bring some of these posts back to life from the archives, or maybe I won’t. Only time will tell.

On another note, I really want to get serious about posting monthly, if not weekly. I have a few ideas for the direction that I want to take this blog, and I am hoping that this season will allow more of my creative process to flow. Anyway, if you have read this far and you don’t mind me asking:

Q: What are some things that you do to find inspiration? ( Anything helps.)

p.s. It feels so good to be back 🙂
