Monday’s are my absolute favorite! Yes, even when I don’t feel like working or the to-do lists seem endless – it’s the first day of the work week and sets the tone for the rest of the days. There was a time when I used to resent the Mondays until a few years ago when I started seeing Monday for what it truly was – a fresh start 🙂
Hydrangeas are so beautiful and this baby pink is so gorgeous! I leave you here with quotes on beginnings:
“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide you’re not going to stay where you are.” —John Pierpont “J.P.” Morgan
“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve
planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has
to be shed before the new one can come.” —Joseph Campbell
Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.” —Meister Eckhart
We are closer to Christmas this side of the calendar and with temperatures dropped here in Edmonton, we are well into the fall! 🍁
Things have been on a roller coaster since we are getting our basement renovated; main floor is now full House with 4 adults(in laws here until October) and kid (part time) – combine that with our full time jobs from home + husband’s 2 aunts from UK arriving tomorrow for 8 days, I am pretty much on the edge going away on vacation myself. Sigh. But family company is we enjoy and long for when it’s just me and husberry in the winter. So this is THE perfect time to cherish family.
Plan of Action
So for the next 8 days, me, husberry & kiddo are moving in to a family friends’ basement. Our offices are being moved to our unfinished basement. There is a lot of change and as much as I like my comfort nook and space, change stretches and helps me to grow.
Hope your last month was great and that you have a productive month ahead!
My sister told me about her neighbor whom she “waved” and said “hi” once in a while. It had been going on for quite long and recently they talked to each other and exchanged numbers. Her neighbour kept saying “call me anytime” or “if you want to go for movie or coffee”. One evening, my sister texted her new acquaintance and asked her if she would like to go for a walk. The response that came back left her puzzled – “I am busy not today”. Then this happened again.
Where Actions do not line up with words.
What is it that stops up from reaching out to people and being vulnerable – being uncomfortable.
We GROW and STRETCH when we step out from our comfort zone.
People make time for who they want to make time for. People text and reply to who they want to talk to.
It’s not about having the time but making the time.
