Goodbye, November

Well…the end is nigh. Today is the last day of November, and with it comes the end of (this year’s, at least) NanoPoblano and NaBloPoMo. The first day – Welcome November – seems far away, yet I can’t quite believe that it is December tomorrow. What a year it has been. What a month it has been.

Things have shifted throughout November; I’ve had fun playing with sounds (via my cochlear implant), new communal spaces are being made in my family home, I’ve flexed my writing capacity again, I made huge progress with something major in my personal life with someone I love deeply…to name but a few. The whole month felt like another big stepping stone that I’ve passed over this year. Another step closer to where I want to be. Another step on the journey that will last throughout my life.

Taking the time to reflect means that you take stock of all the goodness of the day, week, month, year – and also the hard times – and it will hopefully lift you. I have been feeling a little uncomfortable at times throughout this month, and I realise now that it may have been growing pains. Sometimes when we are growing as a person, we begin to release the shackles of things that were holding us back – old perspectives, how we are/were perceived, things that no longer serve us – and it can occasionally be a bit of a yucky process. It might make you feel like you’re wading through sticky mud, yet you might not actually be sure of what is happening. Reflection helps.

Before December begins, I want to take some moments to appreciate the light that was contained within November. I want to quietly remember, give thanks, and send love out into the universe.

November reminded me of my courage.

November taught me to never give up.

November filled my life with love.

November was a beauty, with her golden hues.

November had skies full of stars – and fireworks.

November was magic. Pure magic.

Here’s to a new month, full of possibilities and pursuits to be followed. Here’s to a month of twinkly lights, of time spent with friends and family, of more magic. Let’s never, never forget that anything is possible.

      Thank you! Congratulations to you too! ❤ Yeah, it felt like this year was a jigsaw puzzle of things falling into place to help me move on and the last piece (I think) has fallen into place, and now I can use more energy to look forward. I hope it was a good month for you too – I'm going to spend a bit of time this morning catching up on blogs, yours included! ❤
