Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. -Albert Einstein
With the cool air of Autumn upon us, it’s a great time to go biking and to admire the changing foliage! I love the season of Fall when all of the leaves blossom in powerful colors like the flowers of Spring! To me, it’s the season of invigoration ~ of moving ahead ~ of foraging and learning the lesson of ‘enough.’
You must keep moving. There. I said it. I’ve said it before. Heck, my posts are riddled with the words ‘baby steps’ so now you have new image!
So if taking my hand and moving in baby steps forward doesn’t work as a good image for you ~ Or if walking on the red carpet doesn’t help ~ Or doing the cha cha when you feel like you’ve taken a step forward, only to take one backwards…How about riding a bicycle?
“Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.”

Happy Saturday! Happy last day of August ~ oh my, where has the summer gone to this year? It’s just inconceivable to me this morning that we’re counting down the last days of summer freedom before school begins. I know some of you already have children in school which is a mixed blessing/curse. For myself, I don’t want to lose the freedom of summer and the joy of being with my children, but on the other hand, I feel the intense need for a bit of routine in my life. So I welcome a bit of routine and Mommy time without feeling guilty (because when the kids are in school, I can’t feel guilty if I need a little bit of ME TIME because they’re not here anyway!) But on the other hand, I enjoy the vagueness of summertime ~ there’s no set time for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The athletics are at a minimum so we aren’t tied to practices, games etc. We can veg out all day or be on the go ~ it’s whatever suits our moods!
I saw this quote today and just thought it was perfect to think about ~ I’d love for you to share what it means to you! You all bring so much joy and learning to my life. When I count my blessings, I count you too! I hope you enjoy the last vestiges of summer (or winter if that’s where you live). My hope is that you simply enjoy your day!
