I was productive this morning. I made cookies and deep cleaned the house. I went on a walk and I found that the sun is colder now than it was when you first arrived. This afternoon I saw that it’s getting darker outside earlier now which makes it perfect for lighting a few candles and watching horror films.
I am still fascinated with you, October. You constantly change the way the days look and feel. It’s so fresh and lovely outside but I wouldn’t dare to go outside without a coat on, or leave my bedroom without my dressing gown.
You’re bringing change not only to the outside world, but to my life and I feel like this year might draw to a positive close. You've helped me to see my beauty doesn't lie in how chiselled my cheek bones are, or how flat my stomach is, or how straight my nose is. You've allowed me to see my beauty is getting up every morning no matter how grim the day seems. You've helped me to see that my beauty comes from my strength and my drive. I'm making babysteps but this seems like a good starting block.
