Happy Wednesday and Happy November 1st! Hope everyone has recovered from the Halloween celebrations last night. We had a pretty low-key evening…pizza, movies and lots of trick-or-treaters! Of course I made sure we lit all our candles and soaked up/enjoyed all of our Halloween decorations ONE.LAST.TIME. 😦 #sadhalloweenisover
And like that…October is GONE and November is here.
October seemed to fly by again this year, but we had a ton of fun and packed a lot into it! I say this EVERY year, but I get a little sad when the month of October is over. It’s may favorite month and Halloween is my favorite holiday. I guess it’s until next year October/Halloween…you will be missed!
Today is also an exciting day because today I have reach 1000 DAYS OF MEDITATING! Can you believe it?! 1000 days!
I’ve been using the Stop, Breath & Think app and absolutely love it! Super easy to use and they have so many different meditations. I love being able to “check-in” everyday, list how I am feeling and then have meditations suggested for me. It’s also pretty neat to see your check-in/meditation streaks. Today’s is especially awesome with 1000 across the board!
You can read about when I reached my first 100 days of meditating here and my one year. Meditation has had a huge impact on my life and this is something I plan on always making a part of my daily routine. I’m so very thankful to have found meditation and am excited for the journey it’s taken me on.
November is also the start of my 30 Days of Thankfulness series on my blog. For the past 5 years, I’ve been doing this series and plan to keep it going. 30 Days of Thankfulness first appeared on my blog in 2013. I also keep a daily gratitude journal on my phone, but really love this blog series during November. You can check out previous series post from 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Please feel free to join me in this series/challenge. I will be posting a recap every 8-9 days or so, as to not totally inundate you with blog posts. My first post is scheduled for November 9th. Hope you join me and cheers to year #5!
