It's official, guys. Autumn is officially on its way and I have to say I'm feeling pretty good about it. Not only is my birthday and the festive season just around the corner, but the thought of studying whilst cosied up indoors with a hot chocolate, having spent the morning walking amongst the ombre, crunchy leaves, certainly appeals to me a lot.
I've always loved Autumn and Winter and I'm not going to lie about the reasons why. For the past 8 years, the colder weather and darker evenings have been a huge relief to me as I can roll my sleeves down, hide away my body under baggy jumpers and woolly socks, without feeling the pressure to bare flesh in the hot sun. This year, however, as I get to grips with this new, healthy and self-loving perspective I'm trying to develop, I'm going to appreciate the parts of Autumn that I haven't always appreciated in the past.
Instead of looking forward to country walks wear I can wrap us so much to the extent that only my eyes and nose are visible and no one is able to see my body whilst burning lots of calories, I will try to appreciate the countryside scenery and time spent with those around me. It's early days but I can honestly now say that I see myself, in the not too distant future, out on a pub walk with my family, rolling my sleeves up if I get a little toasty, before tucking into a fat roast dinner and feeling okay about it. It's going to be great.
