Welcome November! What joy do you hold for us this month?
Some month’s life gets so busy that the deadline for Nourish sneaks up on me! It becomes an “oh shoot!” situation that has me wondering if I will make the publishing editor's deadline and deliver the finished product for the first of the month. It can be daunting and if I allowed it, I could become paralyzed at the mere thought of starting the process. Yet I pull up the first submitted article and start reading, I am drawn into the magic of what the author is sharing, and that lays the foundation. My heart gets involved as I pour over the many pictures to capture the essence of the article, a picture that will draw in the reader and make them want to find out what the article is about. One page at a time the magazine comes together and each month I am proud to be associated with so many talented authors who freely share their knowledge with each of us.
When our hearts engage, our passion shines through and life becomes richer and filled with substance that carries us onward. The tasks we perform when our heart is engaged become fun and time flies swiftly by. This is the key to a life well lived, I believe, finding what engages our heart. When our hearts are engaged it does not matter what challenges present themselves, we don’t see them as challenges, we quickly figure out how to keep going forward. We are less likely to be stressed by life and that my friends means we are healthier.
Make November the month you notice when your heart is engaged. Where you are and what you are doing when you forget about time and get immersed in the joy of what you are doing?
November can be a bleaker month as the season continues to transition towards winter. Stay warm, stay positive, rest and metaphorically harvest what awakens your passion. Your passion will light your way and brighten your life on the darker days.
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” Oprah Winfrey
