A pep talk for October
It’s October, and we’ve got 31 days of who knows what in front of us.
Itchy sweaters and asters?
Imagine walking through falling leaves like tossed confetti, missing the green and komorebi.
Ignore the pumpkin spice lattes and the white girl in yoga pants.
It’s as if we all got old at breakneck speed.
If we were to succumb to falling like the leaves, turning like the leaves, and swirling like the leaves,
let’s do it gradually and gracefully.
I see 31 days of weary hearts and droopy eyes.
Into winter we tread, making our way through weeks of autumn and fall.
If and when we finally collapse, and our knees give in, can we just lie on our backs and follow the cracks in the ceiling?
I see 31 days of falling down and getting up, of clenched fists and uncertainty.
It’s October, but that might not have been a pep talk.
This hasn’t made me look forward to the rest of the month :( But I love the quote in the picture
Aw, sorry :( it was a depressing morning for me. But yay, I love the quote too!
It’s ok.. October isn’t a great month anyways. I still liked your anti-pep talk :)
I feel old today. It must be October!
