Here we are again Dear Reader and it's October 2015 already! I say this every month, but really Christmas will be here before we know it...
falling leaves hide the path so quietly ~John Bailey, "Autumn," a haiku year, 2001, as posted on oldgreypoet.com
October and Autumn generally, are a time when I'm beginning to come around to the idea of spending more time indoors, eating more soup and other warm comforting foods, contemplating a sewing or knitting project and generally letting go of some stuff (rather like the falling leaves from the trees I'm watching drift onto the lawn in our garden).
Here are some of my dreams and goals that I've written down for October:
- healthy food making for my family
- pause frequently
- make art a prayer
- creating video for my Facebook Creativity Group
- writing down My Story
- savouring the delights of Autumn whenever I can
I also want to slow the build-up to Christmas down a little this year, so I'm planning on spending some time looking how this might be possible.
In the meantime, I do hope you find some time to jot down what's important for you this month in whatever way feels helpful and true to you. Remember, by clarifying your dreams and goals, you are actually focusing your energy and resources in order to accomplish something that is important to you.
