I feel hopeful.
The air is crisp. The leaves are falling. The colors are vibrant.
A month into my new normal things are finally beginning to feel, well, more normal. A daily routine is evolving, lending itself to one that is weekly. I am learning my boundaries and limits through trial and error.
I am discovering more about myself in the quiet spaces and recognizing my tendency to fall down the path of least resistance, rather than lean into the hard. This results in me putting things on the back burner that really need focus and clarity. It is easier to escape into Netflix than to engage in reading and writing.
My good intentions will never happen unless I am intentional.
This month, intentionality looks like taking time daily to write. I hope to post these writings on the blog. We shall see what happens.
In moments of adversity, I tend to shut down and think, What’s the point?
I am so grateful for those who send words of encouragement my way, whether through Facebook Messenger, email, comment, or text. All methods are recognized and appreciated. They have helped me choose to continue engagement. To persist.
Here’s to a new month full of promise and possibilities. Welcome, October! I’m glad there’s you.
