As many of you know (or don’t), November is a crazy, challenging, (terrible) and emotional month for me! Each year I really do try my hardest to fight the sadness, but, it swoops in without me even realizing. Usually I am hysterical over “nothing” and it hits me (like a ton of bricks) that “it is November” and I realize WHAT is going on.
This year, I am really focused on being grateful! Even when I find myself being crazy emotional “for no reason” I pause and take a moment to list out all I am grateful for in that moment. I will say, this year it is much easier vs past years! I consider this a win!
Here is to focusing on all that I have to be grateful for! And, for expressing it through a variety of ways!
