It’s been a long time since I last did an Instagram Monthly post, and I thought I should do it again, and I thought the past month deserved one. Because I realized today (just today, really) that November is my most favorite month of the year. Looking at Novembers past, I couldn’t be more right in my recent realization. November is definitely a favorite.
It’s the month to look back and remember the lives of those who went ahead of us, and to be thankful for the life we now live. It’s the celebration of the past and the present. It begins with bittersweet memories and ends in joyful celebrations; with mourning and then dancing. It’s the season of Thanksgiving and rejoicing. Of leaves turning, and winds shifting, and wardrobes changing.
November is like, the calm before the storm. A time to breathe before the holiday rush takes over the malls, the roads, our homes. It’s a time of transitions and courageous pursuits, of leaps of faith and quiet reflections.
It’s the last chapter before the last chapter, where the story wraps up and culminates for the big finale. It’s quite an important month, really, but most of us won’t know it until it’s over.
Thank you, sweet November, for all the sweet moments, and for ushering us to December beautifully. We shall see you again next year.
