October isn’t even close to being over and it’s already taught me so much. I’ve been able to seriously contemplate and flesh out the idea of moving up to Washington after I graduate. I’ve been able to cut toxic friends out of my life. I’ve been able to learn who values me. I’ve been able to learn what to value.
So while November is as a month of appreciation for many, October, you’re my month of gratitude.
So I’m thankful.
For a cute cat who can be the sweetest, most cuddly (seemingly innocent) black bat, yet still think it’s fun to eat and shred pages of her mom’s rented textbooks.
For parents who I’ve become more close with and come to respect more than my high school self would have ever thought possible. For new experiences.
For a guy who thinks my chubby cheeks are cute and feeds me ramen while I ramble (and sometimes rant) about nothing particularly important.
For autumn breezes.
For beautiful friends who write me love letters, support me, sacrifice time for talks over cups of coffee, and are quick to forgive my (many) mistakes when needed.
For apple cider.
For gracefully letting go and expectantly taking in. .
…So October, you’ve been more helpful than you know.
