Hello : October
October, where did you come from?! You’ve completely snuck up on me with no warning and taken me off guard. The heating is now on, the layers are being wrapped around me tightly, when the work hours finish my mind instantly wonders to sofa slumbering and warming, comforting food.
But there’s not too much time for squidging up in warm cozy nooks, October is also the month of birthday celebrations. This year I hope to enter a new age in a relaxed, loved, simple kind of way. BF and I are meeting after a far too long a gap for copious amounts of cuddles and cocktails, and an explore of Bath and thermal pools when we can tare ourselves away. A small intimate dinner date with close friends to seal the deal when I return, and that’ll be me, another year older, another year of finding myself.
At the age of (almost) 31 I’m approximately 3,724 miles away form where I thought I’d be, and it’s only in the last few days and months I’ve felt I know truly where I want to be. That place is scary, it’s filled with uncertain challenges, but it also feels right and where I belong. I’m scared to take the steps I know I need to walk, but I’m petrified to remain in my current life. It’s had it’s time, but it’s now time to add itself into my memories for new days and journeys ahead.
You have no idea what you’re wishing me luck for, but I’ll take all the luck that’s kindly offered into my next chapter…
