As the leaves begin to change colour on the trees and the weather gets colder on a daily basis, another month has come and gone and it’s time to update the Harperness project.
September was my month to work on home. And my month was a great success! I had a lot of help – I have an incredible husband who helps to keep me on an even keel and remind me what’s important when my filter goes awray. So thanks to his unending support and ongoing encouragement, I’m happy to say our home is a place of kindness, calmness, and love.
So – where do I go from here? I move directly into October. October is one of my favorite months – I get to celebrate some amazing birthdays and anniversaries. So I thought it was fitting to make October a month of celebration; a month to celebrate both the big things and also the little things.
Celebration is an important part of life. We move at the speed of light on a daily basis and it’s easy to forgot all the little victories that we have, amidst the learning moments and the challenges that we face every day. But it’s those little successes that can help us get out of bed every day and that can help to guide us when we are feeling bogged down.
So this month, I will be working on celebrating every chance I get. That doesn’t mean having a huge party or spending a bunch of money – but it will mean remembering to notice achievements, remembering to recognize the successes no matter how big or small, and remembering to share the warmth that comes from celebrating all the wonderful moments in life.
As the adage goes – “Today is a gift – that’s why they call it the present” – so let’s also remember to celebrate life itself.
Here we go, October!
