Embracing the Now

It’s been 80 degrees and going strong over here, and while I’m dying to wear jeans, I figured I might as well squeeze some more mileage out of my summery dresses.

As dumb as this sounds, getting dressed in 80 degree weather when I want to wear all the fall clothes has been good practice for me to embrace the season I’m in, whether that’s a literal season or a life stage kind of season.  I don’t know about you, but I’m the kind of person that can easily spend my days wishing for something else, from small things like the weather to bigger and more important things related to job/family/etc.  Instead, for the last few years I’ve been trying to be content with whatever is happening in the present by learning to embrace it and enjoy it.  I don’t want to be ungrateful for sunshine and warm weather, which is easy to do when you’re born and raised in California!  So, I’ve been focusing on learning more gratitude and less wishing for something else.  And everyyyyyytime October rolls around in San Diego and it’s 80 degrees and people around the country are wearing jeans, button ups, boots, and layers, I have the opportunity to get a lot of practice.  😉

P.S. In case you missed it, I was interviewed by fellow San Diego blogger Gina from On the Daily Express a couple weeks ago.  Find it HERE!
