Outfit: Snap, Crackle, Pop

 

dsc_0430Well, it’s getting to be that time of year again.  Hopefully you can’t tell, but the morning when I took these photos, it was a chilly 35 degrees.  The leaves were literally snapping off the tree branches and made the most delightful crunch! crunch! when I stepped on them.

Now that this year is coming to an end, it’s time for me to start refocusing.  Ever since my breakup, I sort of lost sight of planning for my future.  All that stuff was sort of built-in when I was with someone else.  Being single again means plotting out my own direction, and I have no idea where to even begin.

I find myself going through the motions sometimes, and it’s time I start thinking about what I’m doing with my job, with this blog, with my apartment–with everything, really!

The trouble is, I’m not quite sure where to start.  I’m so busy all the time that I don’t have the time I need to reflect and reset.  Thankfully, with the holidays coming up, I should have at least a few days to myself.  In the meantime, I’m going to try to relax and just listen to those crackling leaves.

    1. Thanks! I’m waiting for all the leaves to fall to take a break–can’t resist taking pictures while they’re still so pretty! And I’m a winter baby, so the cold ain’t no thing 😉

  1. I can definitely relate with your feelings of busyness/ lack of goals lately too. It’s hard to stop and take the time to make plans when you are just so absorbed in every day life!
    These photos are lovely- I love the sound of leaves in falltime too.

  2. YESSS, I relate so much to this. I took the week off of blogging and tried to focus on what I want to do in the future. I know I don’t want to stay in the city I’m in for too long so it’s been really important for me (and my mental health) to figure out an exit strategy. I’ve never really been in a super serious relationship so I’ve always planned my life by and for myself so I think it can be a really great experience! You can do and go wherever you want in the future!

    1. Taking a break is so valuable, and I’m glad you found it helpful. 🙂

      I have a really hard time planning life as a single person–I hold back on a lot of stuff because WHAT IF I’m with someone? Even stuff as mundane as buying a couch–I haven’t bought one because WHAT IF my next boyfriend has one and it’s a waste of money for me to get one?? I think you’ve got it right. It’s healthier and better for you to plan the life YOU want NOW.
