This week has been beautiful in the Northwest. Enjoying the weather before it’s gone is a must. So today I made an executive decision to sit on my porch with my morning glass of coffee. I needed to soak in the warm weather before it turns cold and the leaves begin to fall. How did summer come and go already? But really, am I the only one that thought summer flashed by with a blink of an eye? School is in session, College Game Day has become a routine, scents of pumpkin spice are in the air, and my list of to-dos keep getting bigger. Life just keeps getting busier and busier. This morning taught me a lesson – I need to be sure to soak in life’s seasons before they have come and gone. Your mind and body need a moment to breathe and reflect in transition to each season. I challenge you to go outside this week and just breathe!
