… as your days get darker my soul gets lighter.
‘We were born to create. Create magic. Love. New life. Dreams & thoughts. Never hide your creativity. Never hide you. Create your life. Create you.’
You’ve never been my favourite, however, you force me to appreciate even the darkest days. Although the sun is hiding and the clouds are heavy we survive. It’s during the rough times we grow, dear October. It’s during those times we know how to live. But I feel you have changed. You’re warmer than before, more colourful. It’s like you fell in love with summer. If that’s the case; I hope you live happily ever after.
October is for facing fears. Dreaming big and taking chances. It’s for enjoying darkness, as well as the light within. Practising mindfulness and feeling grateful for all that is. And like every other month October is for believing in the power within, believing in oneself. Loving oneself. It’s for grasping opportunities. Looking within for happiness, success and courage. Sometimes the things we want the most are closer than we think. Pause _________________________
Treasure what you got. Don’t take anything in life for granted.
‘Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.’
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
This October is all about courage, love and determination. It’s about dark, dark nights full of stars. Full of hope. It’s about being kind to oneself, fellow humans and Mother Nature. It’s about inspiration and thinking out load. Expressing emotions, thoughts and dreams. It’s about feeding the body nutrients. Respecting the body. Listening to the body. It’s about not being afraid of failure. Since ‘He who never fails, never actually lives.’ Dare to flourish. Dare to be you.
How come we treat ourselves with such disrespect? How come we treat our planet the way we do? It’s the most wonderful place in the Universe. If we only knew how lucky we are to be here, right now. Lucky to enjoy the beauty of the ocean, the forrest, lakes, mountains, roads, cities, cultures, beaches, skyscrapers, animals. It’s a miracle. You’re a miracle. Don’t you ever forget that.
I welcome you. You’re only dark on the outside, I know, since your loving character shines through. I won’t hide from you anymore, dear October. Let us play. Let us dance. Life begins every second.
