What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
August is this beautiful pause in the year. Not quite all summer, not quite all fall. It’s still roughly ten million degrees outside, but the stores are filled with back to school supplies. I love this month. It’s full of my favorite summer things with the slowly creeping in anticipation that all my favorite fall things are right around the corner. It’s a good month.
Question: What if this could be the month that could change everything?
Second question: Why can’t this be the month that changes everything?
What a beautiful month to do something amazing.
Some of us, the amazing thing we need to do involves doing. It involves getting up early and putting in the time and working harder than usual and checking things off a to-do list. It is important and sacred and requires hard work.
Some of us, the amazing thing we need to do involves less doing. It involves slowing down, learning to take deep breaths, saying no more, pushing some things off of our plate. It is important and sacred and requires hard work.
Take a few moments today and be honest with yourself: What do you need from August? And what does August need from you?
You’re the only one who can answer that question. You know what you need to do more of and you know what you need to do less of. You know where you’re not pushing yourself enough and where you’re completely overwhelmed. So take stock of that and decide – you’re going to have a good freaking month. August? It’s gonna be your month.
Let’s welcome this month with open arms. Let’s leave whatever hard things happened in July in July and welcome the fresh start of new beginnings.
Let’s be so open to the magic that August has to offer.
Happy August, beauties.
