Hello Sweet October

Wonderful readers,

You probably think I am being sarcastic with this title, since what is so sweet about October? Days are getting shorter, grey sky is becoming an everyday sight, cold wind and rain on daily basis and you definitely cannot go out of the door without your scarf and especially strong umbrella… Well, when I put it in this negative way, it really does sound depressing. But I do not want to go in this direction.

Of course, all of the things I mentioned above are totally true. But at the same time, we can look at these things in a different perspective, without getting ourselves into this grey and sad bubble.

Days are getting shorter? Well, it is about time to find a hobby and light a lot of candles at home. It makes an amazing atmosphere and calms your soul. Grey sky is your everyday sight? Perfect, now you can wear something bright coloured, like a coat, and stand out while walking outside. Cold wind and rain on daily basis? It is just about time to start layering your clothes and feel comfortable and warm whenever you go. Also, you can do more creative work, try some new recipes, start watching a new show, visit local cafes or read books when the rain drops tickle your windows. And there are so many beautiful scarf, hat, coat and boot options that will make you want even colder days. Now, does it sound as bad as before? Absolutely not. I could make an even longer list of these positive side effects.

I love these knitted slippers made by my boyfriends grandma.

Eventually, we see – It all comes to our mindsets. We simply have to constantly remind ourselves to keep the right mindset at all times. So why I called this October sweet? Because I decided to start it with a smile, piece of cake, delicious coffee, by taking out my comfortable cardigans and by lighting a bunch of candles at the best place in the world – home. I did this, because why not? It definitely made me feel good and made me excited about the rest of the month. Therefore, find your own ways to make this October sweet and take some time to check if your mindset is where you want it to be.
