It's possible that I overextended myself in September. Or, as my friend Parker said, I was burning the candle at 20 different ends.
So, October is a month for renewal. Fall is my favorite season. October is one of my favorite months. This year, I will use it to find joy and renewed energy.
"... in October, everybody walks around with a certain energy as if they are going to be elected president the next day, as if they are going to get married." (Donald Miller)
I started by meditating for just one minute this morning and reading a story from the book, Cold Tangerines.
"Today, humble Today, presents itself to us with all the ceremony and bling of a glittering diamond ring: Wear me, it says. Wear me out. Love me, dive into me, discover me, it pleads with us." (Shauna Niequist)
Slow and steady wins the race.
