Morning Thoughts

I've honestly forgotten to write anything on here. This is not okay, because this means I haven't taken the time to reflect on what I'm doing/thinking/feeling/wanting, which is part of the reason why I created this page to start with!

But with a new school year comes this fresh ambition to get out and tackle the world, so here I am! I have a few ideas for posts and thoughts and fun things :) I have some new influences in my environment at school this year, so there's lots on my mind.

I've been waking up super early for class all week, so naturally on Saturday I wake up at the same time. But instead of going back to bed, I wanted to use my time. I was cleaning up when I stepped outside for a minute to feel the weather. In a puddle in the alley there was a group of 3 or 4 little birds, actually taking a bird bath in the water. They jumped in, flapped their wings crazily, and fluttered out for the next bird. So cute! There are rewards to getting up early :)

One last thought: I can be a bit of a perfectionist. Something that's held me back from posting is this idea that everything I write has to be my finished product. But life's not about perfection; it's about looking at the imperfect world in which we live and finding what's beautiful and good about it. So, no more of that (although that might be a challenge).

Good morning!
