. . . October has been my favorite month. I'm unable to explain the almost magical atmosphere that surrounds me during this time. I suspect it could be linked to the start of the holiday season, but no month captures my heart like October.
The weather is more tame and predictable. My moods seem to fall in step with this tranquility. It's as if a new beginning has been handed to me. New beginning. I plan something new for this October. I won't just sit and watch it roll by, as enjoyable as that has always been for me in the past.
I am going to follow the example of my Spark friend, Sheila, and focus on myself. My responsibilities will be met, but I will take empty time away from the tv and the computer to assure that my exercise gets done and that I am tracking my nutrition. Couple my determination with my love for this month, I can only hold my breath to see how truly awesome this month can be.
