It's November!

It's November!

The month we used to set aside for gratitude and pumpkins which is now simply an extra 30 days of Christmas.

If you let it.

Maybe you love Christmas so much that an extra month of Andy Williams reaffirming this is indeed "The most wonderful time of the year" is right up your alley. If so, my hats off to you, no critique from me...ever.

But I don't want to look past November because I do think it's a month set aside for gratitude and pumpkins.

Did you know if you write down 3 new things you are grateful for every day, after 21 days your brain starts scanning for positive things rather than negative?  I'm going to do it.

And did you know if you clean out your closet knowing that your cast-offs will go to someone who will really use them it's easier to give them away? I did it the other works.

And did you know that if you watch a clip about a little boy and his brother you will smile.....

You really will, I did.


  1. I'm a firm believer in the gratitude journal. I have boxes full of them. I haven't been writing in them as much in the past year or so, but I can attest to how it changes your point of view and thus your life. Great habit to adopt.

    1. I believe in it too, but I needed a reminder in a big way. I haven't been applying it to my life and it shows. Thank you for reading..

  2. Fortunately, here in Santa Fe there's no overkill yet. But when we get back to the Bay area mid week, well, let's just say I'm girding my loins for it.

  3. Thanks for the pep talk, Honey. You're the best. xo
