Hang in There is the name of my chosen September desktop wallpaper.
When I first saw this out of the submissions, I immediately knew it was going straight to my desktop. It has several things I like. Macro-photography, of course. It also has simplicity, use of wood texture, calming earth tones, and I really relate to the title.
This summer, I have been organizing my life in such a way that I can relax at some point and actually enjoy the results of what I've worked to accomplish. I have been sectioning the year into seasons, but not the traditional weather-related ones.
Let's see, this year I've experienced the self-development season: read a bunch of books, find gainful employment/plan out education opportunities.
The spring-cleaning season: reduce clutter and other stuff I really don't need to keep.
The personal-finance season: assess my financial situation and execute a plan to improve it.
The digital documentation season: February Album Writing Month (FAWM.org), National Novel Writing Month (NanoWriMo.com), blogging, year-end reflection season, etc.
These seasons may overlap at any time and each one is something that I look forward to because… it's full of unused time. Time that will hopefully show that my actions have been counting toward something. So now, whenever I look at my desktop this month I am comforted with this little reminder to stay focused, keep on working hard to make good and productive decisions and just hang in there.
What are your personal seasons?
