Month In Review: September 2017

Month In Review: September 2017

As much as I didn’t want summer to end, there is something beautiful about the beginning of a new season. 

Fall is a time to reset, reassess your goals and set new ones. New possibilities exist if you are just willing to see them.

Welcome to another month in review!  This one is going to be short because, well honestly I’ve just been trying to settle into our new home, find work and get to know my new hometown. 

So here we go!

In September 2017…

Sunny September days have had me craving nature and getting active outside. Lake Pfäffikon is so beautiful and only a 10 minute walk from our apartment. I love living this close to a lake and exploring all the trails that exist around here!

Month In Review September 2017

In September I wrote a blog post about why I’m choosing a minimalist lifestyle and shared some tips on how you can also embrace this life of less. I’m constantly working on this mindset shift and learning more about myself as I go.

In case you need more reasons to embrace a minimalist lifestyle… here are twenty! 

Embracing Minimalism

Real Talk

September was a month full of challenges. 

We found ourselves asking the question of what the hell are we doing here?

Expat life with a twist as it turns out, is not always perfect! But the setbacks and challenges we face are lessons in life that we would have never learned if we stayed in our comfort zone. These challenges teach us that even if you fail, you always have the choice to get back up and try again. They teach us to keep our head up. To stay ambitious. 

And I’ve come to realize that nothing every really goes away until it teaches us what we need to know. From there, it’s only onward and upward.

What I’m Listening To 

Currently my favourite badass bossbabe podcast I love listening to is Jenna Kutcher’s Goal Digger Podcast. On her podcast, Jenna discusses everything from blogging, entrepreneurship, goal setting, business success and everyday life. Her fun and inspiring podcasts have been motivating to keep doing what I love – blogging! 

Favourite Quote 

Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally.

It comes from what you do consistently.

Goodbye September and hello October 2017!
