Monthly Snapshots | November

Instagram - @sambam

A snapshot of my comings and goings.

and just like that, it was Summer.

The warmth of the sun flooded my room this morning, excitedly awakening me from my deep sleep just as a child would wake their parents on Christmas morning. It was eager to see me, more eager than I had anticipated. The beams of light came through my window and shone onto the walls before me reflecting goodness onto my cheeks. My bare legs stretched and turned under the sheets and I opened my eyes to a room of orange and gold. My alarm hadn't even rung yet but I'm starting to learn you don't need an alarm when you have mother nature in control.

The rains came yesterday and they are scheduled to return all this week, so today I am soaking in all the warmth I can before it leaves me for the clouds. I don't need much though. I don't want to be greedy. I just need a little. You see, sometimes by having just a little bit of light you allow your eyes to adjust to the potential darkness that is to come.

November was full of little bits of light. From relationships, to work, to self development and learning, my life grew from the light that was provided to me, light that I couldn't control or buy. It was a gift. And now as we enter into a busy month, I am holding onto that light dearly and allowing it's rays to guide me as I step into the new season.

Let's hope it's enough to get me through.

Where do you find your light when you know a dark tunnel is approaching?

p.s. Happy Summer to my Southern friends! and Happy Winter to my lovely companions in the North! Let's have a party to celebrate the new season x
