Monthly Reflections | July

Goodness this summer is flying by! Days are significantly becoming shorter, each ending a few minutes earlier with some serious gorgeous sunsets. Almost every night the sky transforms itself into a stunning piece of art with colors so beautiful only nature could make. This summer has definitely been a colorful one so far, and it’s not just from the beauties growing in the garden. From colorful sprinkles cakes with festive tassel toppers, to getting back into watercolor painting. It’s been the biggest form of relaxation for me lately {since running or dancing has been put on the back burner for a bit}, I actually crave it mentally. The tranquility of blending colors and creating art whether it was a beautiful quote or simple birthday cards, painting quieted my frantic mind.

These last two months, my mind has definitely wandered off and left endless thoughts, concerns, frustrations, and doubts running wild within. Mediation has done wonders in helping me completely clear my mind, but for those brief moments I think of absolutely nothing, I’m also avoiding all these things I can’t stop thinking about. Which is why posts were a bit lacking last week, and because the weekend was busy teaching kid’s cooking birthday parties followed by unexpected errands and places to go. I just didn’t have the mental energy to write. How do you guys get over mental blocks when you’ve got so much going on in your head, that you can’t seem to figure out how to solve issues or get things back on track?

But seriously I don’t want summer to end, I’m sure most of you are all with me, but have you seen all the fall and halloween decorations being set up already in stores?! I can’t, I just can’t handle it yet! Can’t we just savor the present and enjoy these days while we still can. I will say this summer, along with being busy has been pretty fun and full of music. I pretty much declared it the summer of music, since I finally got to go to Firefly Music Festival which was so much fun! And then there was Coldplay. What a show! I danced, I sang my heart out, I cried, I felt everything you could possibly feel listening to their songs. Coldplay is my favorite bands, so to be able to finally see them was an amazing experience. It was simply euphoric.

Ah but August, you will be even busier so I’m planning on some fun outdoor activities to balance out all the work I’ve got ahead of. I’m hoping on some late summer weekend trips to visit friends who are lucky enough to live near lakes, which will be nice since I’m craving some serious travel and adventure.

How’s your summer been so far? Any fun and exciting plans in the weeks to come? I hope it’s been great, and continues to be!
