Turning My Grey Complaining Into Orange Gratitude

Turning My Grey Complaining Into Orange Gratitude - SelfBinding Retrospect by Alanna Rusnak

It's downright gloomy outside and the wood hissed at me when I tried to light a fire yesterday. I hate being cold and I hate wearing socks and I hate how busy everything feels and I hate how grumpy all this hate makes me.

Because I'm not a hateful person.

I'm a glass-half-full, look-for-the-silver-lining kind of girl.

I'm a second-piece-of-pie, get-lost-in-a-good-book kind of girl.

I'm an always-look-on-the-bright-side-of-life kind of girl.

So, while the wind howls and the leaves take their final death dive, I've got to make my own sunshine by taking the best of the season and costuming my home.

And by the best of the season, I mean orange. Because ORANGE!

Sunsets! Fire! Sweet potatoes! The energy of red and the happiness of yellow.

It doesn't take much to bring a touch of the good parts of fall into a home. {And no matter how cheesy you might think plastic gourds are - they're a cheap way to celebrate the season without breaking the bank.}

It's ridiculous really, that a small little corner like this can turn my mood around.

But it does. So I'll take it. Because every day needs a little brightening.

How do you welcome fall in your home?

  1. I am the exact same!! The front of my house I'd decorated in tomb stones and severed feet and arms. I go all out for Halloween. I love it!!

    1. The options are endless! Not sure I'd put severed feet on my hutch but a zombie theme is a super fun idea :)
