It’s been awhile since I last checked in, so I figured what better day than a rainy Sunday morning to do a brief check-in and snapshot of some of my latest happenings.
A couple weeks ago, I decided to finally take the leap and craft a Facebook page for Melissa’s Morning Musings! I’d held off for awhile for my own silly reasons, but ultimately felt it was a good choice to go ahead and create one. Since creating one, I’ve posted numerous photos, quotes and thoughts, so if you’d be so kind, please head on over to the Melissa’s Morning Musings Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/MelissasMorningMusings/), take a look and if you’d be interested in doing so, consider “liking” it, so you can instantly see my latest updates!
In other news, over the past week or so, I finally noticed the beginnings of the Fall foliage transpiring. In my local area (suburbs of Philadelphia, PA), some trees are starting to show pleasant golden hues of yellow, red and orange, while others are still fairly green. In an area not far from me (about 25 minutes depending upon traffic) in Princeton, NJ, the Fall foliage is a bit more abundant. In fact, the other evening as my sister, mom, niece and I drove through the town, we were greeted by a vibrant glow of yellow hues radiating from the changing trees. At one point, I was so overcome with the beauty we saw, I could barely place it into words.
With that being said, for me, Autumn has always signaled new beginnings or turning over a new leaf (how appropriate!). Still, I can’t help but sometimes feel a bit defeated when I think about all the dreams and goals I still have yet to reach. Thankfully, I’ve stumbled across numerous quotes motivating and propelling me towards perseverance and strength. Therefore, the following are some of them, which I hope may resonate with some of you who may be reading, as well:
“There is nothing wrong with who you are in-between smiles.”
“Carve a tunnel of hope through a mountain of disappointment.”
“Love is not about how much you say I love you, but how much you prove that it’s true.”
“When someone really loves you, they believe in you even when you don’t believe in yourself.”
“Always leave people better than you found them. Hug the hurt. Kiss the broken. Befriend the lost. Love the lonely.”
“Lighting the way for others illuminates your own in return.”
“It’s okay to wait for the love you deserve, do not compromise or settle because of loneliness.”
“Behind every picture is a story. Don’t be afraid to share yours.”
“Fall in love with someone who doesn’t make you think love is hard.”
