Life on a Rerun

Listen to the post HERE

Do you ever feel like there are certain areas of your life that happen repeatedly?

I don’t mean the day to day of your life but I mean every fall you feel a certain way or every winter you need to deep clean.

I notice that for myself as summer ends I feel an itch to change. I need change and I want to dive into something that brings me comfort.

The comfort aspect of this for me the past few years is that I want to watch something that kind of feels like putting on your favorite worn in pajama shirt and getting into a bed with freshly washed bedding. That show for me has been Gilmore Girls. Something about that show is so calming to me.

Maybe next year the show will be something else, but for now that’s the one. Maybe it’s because I watched it when I was younger and I know what to expect. I read somewhere that people with anxiety like to rewatch shows for that reason. Maybe I’m searching for something I can control while also feeling like I need a change. Something stable in my life is important.

This picture is how I am also feeling:

The picture says “perhaps this is where you breathe deep and take the leap” and is made by Morgan Harper Nichols.

I really really love this quote and the picture itself is beautiful.

I do have a big life change coming up and I am a little nervous and a lot excited for it. I am not sure how it is going to go and what will come of it, but I know that I can handle what comes my way.

I am taking the breath and taking my leap. And of course watching my show that grounds me and makes me feel all cozy and safe.

I can be brave and also need something to comfort me.

Every year around this time I do seem to make a change in my life. Maybe it’s a job, maybe it’s my hair, maybe it’s who I allow to be in my life.

As I write this I am wondering if it’s more about the fact that it’s around the time of my birthday and I check in with myself before I get a year older.

What do I value in my life in this moment? What do I want to continue to do? What has stopped serving me? What do I want to try this next year?

Growing up is weird, but it’s amazing and beautiful and necessary to be alive.

Maybe you are like me and are searching for a change and also looking for comfort somewhere.

You can do whatever you set your mind to, my friend.

Until next time,
