Starting Over in Fall Free Printable and vignette |

There is a real love-hate relationship between fall and me.  Its arrival signals the end of my favorite season and the freedom that comes with it.  Gone are the longer days of warmth and endless sunlight. I've never been too much of a fan of saying goodbye or seeing anything coming to an end.

But because each season seems to have its perks, I am also able to see the magical qualities that fall possesses in addition to its natural beauty.

A part of me loves it because I feel like autumn brings the chance to start over.  In my mind, I'm still able to return to those days of going back to school with new clothes, unsharpened pencils and unused notebooks, and connecting with different friends.  Each school year brought the possibility of new adventures and new beginnings.  Whoever I was the previous year didn't matter anymore.

Even though I've been out of school and college for years now, I still find my heart believing that fall is my time to wipe the slate clean and start fresh.  The season fills me with hope that great things are ahead if I am willing to make them happen.  And this year more than ever, I'm moving forward with a clear picture of what I want my life to look like and who I want to be going forward.

The key to finding that magic of fall isn't so much in the dreaming and believing, though.  It is in the doing.  Nothing is going to change or get better if you aren't willing to take the leap towards what you want and trust that each step forward is moving you closer to what your heart desires.  While I know that nothing ensures we will ever get what we want in life, it is far better to try than to be left wondering what could have been if you had.

To encourage myself to keep working towards my goals this fall, I created a printable to hang on my wall.  I also wanted to share it with you today as part of a tour hosted by Kristen from Ella Claire.  We are each sharing a free printable we've made for you to use this season and links and images to everyone's creations appear at the end of this post.

At the end of August, I took a drive with my mom to Sprague's Maple Farms in Portville, New York.  They have a path up through the woods behind their restaurant and while taking a walk, I had to snap this picture of a bend in the trail.  It was at a spot where you could continue forward to parts of the path that couldn't be seen or you could turn around and go back the way you came.

The scene in front of me seemed like the perfect representation of the opportunity we each have this fall.  You can stick with what you know, what seems like the safe choice, and let the next few months pass as they normally would.  Or you can choose the path that leads to places unknown, the one that could have something worth remembering waiting at the end.

Please know these printables are for personal use only and should not be resold or altered in any form.  
For best results, print them out on heavy card stock
