september in review

Your reader's may have missed out on some content this month, you have new or occassional readers, or you didn't post much. Consider a Month in Review post. I know I can't keep up with all the wonderful blogs out there. Just copy & paste the headings below and add your responses.

september was amazing. another roller coaster of emotions - fury, disappointment, shock, sadness, all leading to true clarity and true compassion. my Libran sense of justice shaken to the core. my walk towards compassion asking more and more of me. so much that others are left behind, not believing, not seeing. my strength taken to mean something else entirely.
using illness to discover a renewed relationship with my body.

A thought...
everything is occuring as it should be.
the power of true friendship, and love, overrides it all.

A sound...
muffled sounds through congested ears

A taste...
echinacea syrup

An image...

the boat ride she hasn't stopped mentioning

A scent...
cinnamon + ginger chai brewing on the stovetop

A word...

A touch...
the taptaptap of a little girl's hand on my back as she helps her mama get her cough out

A gift for me...
truly letting go

A post you may have missed...
strong women, with great comments.
the validity of emotional eating also with interesting comments

Did you do a review? Let me know. and a link back of course would be nice.

  1. What a fab picture Mon!!!

  2. Such a beautiful picture of both of you there Mon : ) Look at that wee girl, riding the waves with the wind in her face - bliss!

    Echinacea and chai power! May the force be with you!

  3. what a gorgeous picture of you both. Sorry that it's been such a month of challenges, mentally and physically for you and hope you are on the mend, from both now.

    And can I say, cinnamon and ginger chai - sounds fantastic - is this of your own creation or do you buy a blend or what ? It totally sounds like something I *need* for a winter's warming and comforting drink.

  4. That's such a gorgeous picture of you both, Mon!

    So sorry to hear you've had such a challenging month though all round, but glad you've gotten so much clarity out of it. Hope you feel better soon!

  5. Love the picture! Hope you are feeling better!

  6. Just posted my Sept in Review.

  7. Sounds like a month of growth! So wonderful that trials can end that way.

    Love the photo.

    Do you have a good chai recipe? I was going to buy a decaf mix that I love but it's full of sugar, which I need to cut back on.

  8. Forgot to say that I did mine:

  9. The picture is beautiful, joyful :) Great review post Mon.

  10. The thing about the path of compassion is that it is often not what we think. It does indeed push back - but usually when we persevere we realise that all obstacles are just one way of looking at things, eh? Can we be compassionate even towards those who "fall behind" or those who we see as standing in our path? That is the hardest form of compassion to embody!

    Also, I can so relate to the Libran sense of justice comment! Got to remind ourselves that it's all about equilibrium!

  11. thanks everyone for the compliments on the photo. i am enjoying returning to photography as art.

    La Gitane - hi there.
    yes, you're so right, it is the hardest form of compassion, but it's the truest. compassion for the weak can sometimes be nothing more than pity.

  12. i must have missed a lot... september seemed to be a challenging month for so many women I know. Looks like you've moved on to more harmonious days!
