Monday Monologue: Shed and Shred

Dark, cloudy, mysterious sky. Colorful trees. Cool breeze.  Yup, fall is finally here. And that means that Moccamus is here too! We took our annual trip to Lynd’s Fruit Farm!

Fall days cleanse me. I don’t know why? Probably because fall days match my personality the most.  I know that sounds strange. But, you already know that Fall is my “New Year.”  It’s that time of year for me to shed my woes.  And holy crap… I have some shedding to do.

I’m letting my burdens, my guilt, and my worries slowly fall like the leaves.  I’m trying to anyways. Wouldn’t it be nice if things were that simple?

*Poof* no more worries.

Nope. Letting go is extremely difficult.

I want to let go of my mistakes from my past, the people I’ve hurt, the things I should have, could have, and would have done.  I want to let go of my worries for the future, my worries of judgment, and my worries of life without my father.


I want to open the doorway for new friendships, new opportunities, and new ways of thinking.

Phase One: Write a list of the things you need to let go.

Phase two: Shred the list.

    This was a particularly poignant post (ppp). I loved that you put the pictures of Kevin and Jordy next to one another- I thought exactly the same thing at the patch. I don’t know if letting go is the right phrase – I think ‘giving way’ is better for way to what will come without resistance, where mindfulness takes the place of worry and hurt. Love you

    1. Yes, I like “giving way” better too. Thank you for your thoughts and wisdom. I like that you mention “without resistance”– I can be very cautious of change even though it’s my constant. xo

  2. I enjoy Fall too and the changes it signifies. “New” things are ahead! Many Blessings, Hannah 🙂

    1. Hannah, I’m excited for “new” to roll in. 🙂 Thank you for reading and stopping by! It’s good to hear from you!

  3. Double dog dare you to post a better picture! WOW!

    1. Aww! Hahha thank you!!! Okay, I’m on a mission now for a better picture 😉 Not sure that it can be done though!
