Good Gourd, it's November
Admittedly, this is one of my least favorite months of the calendar year, but that never stops me from giving thanks all month long! I appreciate November because it reminds us to give a little extra thanks for the blessings that are bestowed upon us.
I want to start by saying 'thank you' to all those who’ve already purchased their copy of #Chapter23. I mean, truly. My heart is so full, if you could look at it, it’d probably explode. (if you haven’t purchased yet, head over to cheyennepajardo.com! we’ll getcha on track😉) I spent a long time writing, compiling, editing, & processing not only my first collection of poetry, but also my first book to ever be published. It still feels completely unreal to me, but I'm beyond grateful to be here right now.
I think it's easy for us to overlook our blessings sometimes. It's human nature to take little things for granted; we're all so busy trying to live & keep up with the never-settling currents of life. We wake up, do all the things, get home, pass out from exhaustion, then repeat it all over again. But, I think that November is a beautiful reminder for us to slow down for a second & take in the beauty that our lives give us. We're in the second to last month of this DECADE. Let that sink in for a second. Look how far you've come. Look at all the great things that have been presented to you. Look at the things you've prayed for & how they've unraveled! Life is such an amazing gift, y'all!
For the past several years, I’ve challenged myself to name one thing every day during the month of November that I’m thankful for. I’d like to challenge you to do the same! What are you most grateful for today? I've found that the most effective way to accomplish naming one thing a day is to write it down. (go figure...a writer telling y'all to write stuff down.) So, grab those sticky notes, paper, pencils, & pens & let's get this show on the road!
We're on DAY 3 of NOVEMBER. What have you given thanks for?
November is not the only time we should give thanks, of course. But, like I've said through this entire #LoveNotes, it's a great reminder to do so. I hope that you continue to receive all the blessings & all the things that you've prayed for. May your eyes be open & focused in on all your goals this month. I have so much faith in you!
I’m praying for nothing but love, light, & of course, an abundance of chicken tenders for y’all all November long! this is going to be another great month; I’m sure of it.
May your day be ever filled with love, light, and of course, an abundance of chicken tenders💜🌻✨
