Happy October, friends! It’s Fall. It’s going to feel like it soon, and before we know it this month will have flown by just as quickly as all of the others have in this year. This time of year is certainly crazy, isn’t it? I feel like it’s our busiest season yet. We are doing more, reaching further, and finding ourselves busier than ever. Some of that is good and maybe some not so much. So before this month just slips away in the chaos, I want to be intentional about it. I want to remember something significant from this month. I want to have challenged myself to reach beyond the day to day and really be. Be present. Be intentional. Be challenged.
And so it’s for these reasons that I love this challenge and am joining in with the Nester as she writes for 31 days in the month of October. I joined in last year for the first time, knowing exactly what my topic needed to be. You can find my 31 days of hope from last year here. This year I am excited for my second go at 31 days of writing as I write every day this month on the topic of ::
This year’s topic wasn’t as obvious to me. And truthfully, I’ve not been brainstorming it for all that long! Because the fact that it is October is completely blowing me away. Before I knew it, it was the very end of September, and I had to kick it in to gear to get this going. Ever since I took the summer off from blogging, I’ve been out of my regular rhythm. And while I certainly enjoy posting, I also found so many other things to fill my time. I am hoping that this October challenge will help me to get back on track and back in this space. I miss you all!
So while I was pondering my topic ideas, this one came to me. It’s not perfect, it’s not definitive, and it’s so broad that I’m not sure where I’ll go. But you can certainly expect to see a home project or two, a recipe or two, a beautiful picture, a beautiful story, and all of the random things that pour out of my heart, mind, and mouth.
My real goal in this topic to look and see what is beautiful in this life all around me. And I look forward to having the month of October to do that.
Thanks for joining me here! I hope you will follow along on these 31 days of beautiful.
