Hello October! Welcome back! Fall has kicked summer to the curb and ghost and goblins are upon us. Nature is in transformation while earth’s other inhabitants prepare for hibernation.
I love this time of the year … amazed by the beautiful and colorful foliage covering the ground and watching the leaves rustle/dance around with the wind, feeling the cool morning/evening breeze flowing through each strand of my hair, and sipping on a hot cup of “cinnamony” apple cider. I’m falling in love with fall all over again.
It’s a new season. I’m taking a venture on the road less traveled. The road with less tread … the road with less gravel. I’m preparing for a new phase … a new adventure away from dating. Yes, that’s right, I’m pressing hard on the pause button and may resume dating in the spring of 2017 … when daffodils and tulips are at full bloom. I’m taking heed to the words that were presented to me via my October horoscope (see below).
Thank you October for being my light in the midst of my darkness. I welcome you with open arms.
My favorite and most adored season is … FALL. I can already feel the breeze tickle my cheeks (on my face you perverts) and smell the dew after an autumn rain.I seriously want to walk outside and click the heel of my knee high Sam Edelman leather boots three times (with one eye opened and the other slightly closed) and chant, “there’s no place like fall, there’s no place like fall, there’s no place like fall” … hoping that the fall gods hear my cry before this extra sweet brown sugar melts in this muggy 100+ degree (southern) summer weather.
At this very moment, I am envisioning myself spinning around in a pile of leaves and playfully falling in the center of the colorful foliage. I would lay there with my eyes closed and legs and arms outstretched as if I was creating a “snow angel” all while inhaling the scent of fall’s “afternoon musk.”
Fall is a season of regrouping/reevaluating …a season of transformation. Fall is a season of testimonies … a season of triumphs and a season of recovery. For what is now … may no longer be a vision for your reality. For every trial, for every test … there will be a triumphant discovery.
As cliché as it may sound … we are like caterpillars preparing for hibernation inside a cocoon … awaiting the moment to morph into a beautiful and wondrous butterfly.
Fall is upon us … Get ready for your breakthrough.
