A New Season

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more aware of the seasons in our lives. Sometimes it’s centered around a job, or it’s seasons literally changing. It can even be the rise or dissipation of certain relationships. As we move into September and fall I’m realizing that I’m ready for a change. I’m going to be expanding into most of these things later this month but here’s a simple list of my autumn goals:

  • Get into shape. Exercise routinely. See change in my body. My personal training sessions start this week.
  • I’m implementing a VERY different work schedule this month. It won’t be easy. More on that tomorrow.
  • After discovering Into Mind, I’m completely re-vamping my wardrobe. Simplicity is the theme. In October I’ll be sharing my approach to this method. In the meantime, I still have 14 more pieces for sale until tonight at 9pm EST over on my Shop My Closet Instagram¬†sale
  • Spend more time in the kitchen and less time in line at Chipotle. I forget how¬†good a home-cooked meal can be. I’m aiming at 4 dinners at home during the week.
  • Equal romance to co-working ratio. I work with my husband full-time and in a way…it can kind of be a romance-killer if you let it. I’m not going to let it.

Like I said, more details on those (pretty huge) goals throughout the month. What about you? Are you looking for changes in your life?

    This month I’m focusing on doing the things that make me feel like I have myself together. learning to actually keep a schedule (which I’m finding is crucial to balancing freelance + full time job). Keep my house clean and actually cook. The trick for me will be finding a way to do all this, but still try to remember it’s okay to spend a little time on the couch with the husband.

      Sounds like we are battling similar routine challenges!! Let me know if you find any time management tips or have any advice once you find a groove. And yes – time on the couch with our husbands is key!!

    This month is the beginning of a transition for me so it’ll be interesting to see what changes in the next thirty days. I’ve become so aware of the changes around me as I get older as well. Sometimes it’s hard to adjust but in the end it’s worth it.

      I agree. I also have a hard time when I’m anticipating change (vs it sneaking up on me). Good luck with your transition, Angel!

    Lovely picture & excited about your goal-setting! I like reading about how other people approach their goal-setting since I’m in a year where I’m doing a lot of that myself :)

    I need some tips on how to simplify my wardrobe, so I can’t wait for that post! I just have a hard time letting go of my clothes! Sigh.

      Thanks Alyssa! It’s nice to have blogger friend support too :)

      I’m excited to share my wardrobe post too! I’m selling lots of stuff to start building since I’m on a spending freeze still but it can be a pretty big investment…

    I actually love the fall because I feel like it’s a new beginning for me. So, I totally get it.

    Thanks for sharing that INTO MIND website… Haven’t spent a ton of time on the site, but from what I’ve seen already… it’s going to be a great resources as I’m trying to curate an intentional wardrobe.

    I looove Into Mind!! Yes!! We had a huge garage sale with my parents and both Adam and Mom were like “you are getting rid of this?! It’s so cute!” Over and over again. It was a good practice in discipline. It has definitely changed how I shop. Now I just research instead of shop.. :-) heh. I go through seasons like this and this year has been a huge one, ever refreshing. I also LOVE the blogs Becoming Minimalist, Miss Minimalist, Zen Habits, and The Minimalists.

      Isn’t it amazing?? I just basically sold all my clothes on my Instagram sale and am so excited to start fresh and actually have a PURPOSE when I’m out shopping. I’m going to a preview party of our new Nordstrom Rack tonight and am taking the money I made from selling my old stuff and now I know what to actually look for. Thanks for sharing those other sites!
