What a joy it is to be writing this letter to you again. If the fall spirit hasn’t been with you since October… it’s upon you now! November classically gets me into the fall spirit—the crispiness of the air or the promise of a huge and delicious dinner with family or friends. I love and cherish all of it.
Although it’s time for connection and celebration, remember the beautiful opportunity we have to go inward and reflect. With the new year mere months away, we have the chance to slow down and assess where we want to go, while appreciating how far we have come. Something I like to do in my downtime is try to recall where I was on this day last year.
If you need help, then consider referencing your phone’s camera roll to help spark a memory. Try to remember what you did that day, who you were with, and who that person is to you now. Do you look the same? And more importantly, do you feel the same?
Even if the changes are insignificant, the point is to recognize change. No matter how established you might be in your job or family, you’ve changed, which is a grand thing. Celebrate the big and small shifts during the last year as you plan for your future.
I wish you a happy November from my heart to yours.
