I’m what some might call, a creature of habit. It’s easy for me to find something I like and then wear it, listen to it, do it, or eat it until it either goes out of style or I’m sick of it. There’s just one exception — encouraging thoughts. Sure, I’ll see a cute graphic or read something affirming and think, “Yes! I like that!”, or even “So true!” and then assume it will sink in and stick with me. But you know what I learned a few months ago at a women’s retreat?
Our brains don’t know the difference between a truth and a lie, but they do know repetition.
Isn’t that crazy!? Or do I just get excited about dorky things? :)
Since learning that, I’ve been trying to keep all the good thoughts, scriptures, quotes and so on, on repeat until I know and believe them. Basically tricking my brain into believing the things I know in my heart are true. The difference it makes has been amazing!!!
In addition to good vibes and thoughts, here are a few other FALL THINGS that are currently on REPEAT around here.
Wearing, all the neutrals and specifically black or gray and brown or tan.
Drinking, pumpkin spice of course, but instead of a latte I order an americano with one or two pumps of pumpkin spice and cream. I like to think it has fewer calories but have no idea if that’s true. Ha! Good thoughts, right?
Cooking, these yummy baked apples and eating crepes at a newish coffee shop down the road from us.
Smelling, all the fall candles! Have you started lighting candles in the evenings?
Watching, football, baseball, and the debate (oh my.).
Working on, some cute decorations and costumes for a Halloween party and another segment on King5. Pictures and details for both, coming soon!
What fall things have been on repeat around your home?!
Hope your weekend is full of pumpkin spice and everything nice :)
