There’s nothing like the change of seasons to remind us of impermanence. Life is in a constant state of change. No matter who we are, no matter what we are going through — there’s one thing about life that ties us all together: it keeps going.

It’s no secret that late summer and the entirety of autumn have been a struggle for me. I can’t honestly say that the clouds have parted and that brighter days are here again. But what I can say is that there is — for the first time in a long time — a light at the end of the tunnel. Some of the trials that I have been facing are letting up. And perhaps, most importantly, there are tremendous and beautiful things just ahead.

Now, it’s up to me to focus on the light, to practice gratitude harder than I ever have before, and to keep pushing through life’s ever-present changes.

I think I’ve done a pretty good job of hinting at it here, but in case I didn’t — I’ve got big & exciting news to share tomorrow. Stay tuned, loves. ♥


“Change” is the November writing prompt of The Mommy Blogger Collective. In addition to a monthly writing prompt, the collective hosts a monthly blogger featurette. This month we are featuring Erica of To the Sea. A few words from Erica — Hello! My name is Erica and I blog at To the Sea. I have a two-year-old daughter and 5-month old son. I went to school for Geography and travel is my passion. I’m also an attorney, but I’m currently staying at home to raise my kids. I love surfing and punk rock. I write about parenting, fitness, and life around the world. I love being a mommy and am stoked to be a part of the Mommy Blogger Collective! You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
