i love october. it's one of my favorite months. after coming home from europe and feeling like i got hit by a mack truck with all of the things i came home to i decided to take a time out and reflect on some things. one of the things i focused a lot on was some soul searching. this search lead me to unearth my curiousity about meditation. i actually have a workbook on insight meditation (because i'm a nerd i absolutely love interactive books) and finally pulled it from my bookshelf. i often like to dedicate my months to something... almost like a lifestyle theme. so it feels almost too right to have this month, my favorite month, dedicated to meditation.
even though i just started reading the book i've already started to dig up some rather uncomfortable things which is both good and bad. i always like learning about emotions and feelings and why people (especially myself) behave the way we do. But you have to be ready for this kind of stuff... pretty powerful. so i'll be sure to update as i go along. i believe october is going to be one hell of a month for my meditation practice.
my soul searching also kicked me into overdrive on the motivation front and i officially finished the bulk of my kickboxing and spin certification exams. i'm very excited to start launching these classes in the new year.
other things i'm looking forward to:
* halloween party with my favorites
*weekly lunch dates with my girls
*a weekend getaway with the hubby out east filled with wine tasting and pumpkin picking
*cool morning runs
*walking through falling leaves with puggle
*completing my additional certifications and adding classes to my schedule
*pulling out all my fall clothes and maybe throwing in a tiny autumn shopping spree
*and of course (!) lots of active vinyasa to warm up the body on those chilly days
happy october to all!
