Winter Preparation Begins
Yesterday I looked out the window and saw flocks of geese flying south. Watching them leave made me feel sad. Our brief summer is officially over. The geese are outta here. But I felt a little bit happy too. The preparation for winter begins. It’s time to think about what warm clothing I’ll need this year.
Last year my feet were always cold – I need a better, warmer pair of everyday shoes. Last year I wanted to adopt the leggings/tunic look and never did – this year I’m going to. Last year I got by with one beanie to keep my head warm – this year I’m going to start adding to my warm hat collection so I can have a great hat for every look. This year I want a new warm coat – a colorful one that will cheer me up when the sun goes MIA for a few weeks.
This year long project is drawing to an end. And I continue to reap the benefits of the work I’ve done for the last 12 months. I’m excited and looking forward to gearing up my closet for a new season. I’m thoughtfully shopping online and browsing the stores. I’m taking notes and not freaking out. It’s like a fun, strategic challenge I can finally enjoy.
The frustrations I felt a year ago are gone. I’ve relaxed and let go. I’ve learned enough about myself, what I like and what I need to be able to move in confidence.
Winter? Go ahead and bring it!
