Novemeber 1st…I get my October Merit badge….and the 10 Reasons WHY!!!!!!!

begins-quiet

“Begins quiet” 2009

October was an interesting month…for as tumultuous as most of the month was….there was a calm that made all of the clatter well worth it….something about being ok with the decisions…not dwelling on what works or doesn’t work…but realizing there are going to be times when things appear as an endless box of failure…while other times will  seem  full of successes…most of the time will be a tug of war…between equalling out the failures and successes in my life….living with it all and making sure the intention has the real flavor…..

I did my end of the month celebration…last night…a tomato beer…some jerked chicken…friends and 5 bags of candy…I carved a pumpkin….handed out candy to the neighborhood kids…watched a scary movie…and realized…the scary movies I thought scary when I was a kid…were not scary at all…they were suspensful…and designed to keep us on the edge of the seat by anticipation….not instilling fear….but nevertheless…I had a great time…awakened this morning to a new time on my clock….and the reality that winter is but a few steps away….

What I discovered during the month of October

1. Things can always get better…and they can always get worse

2. My gut instinct is worth listening to more often than I do

3. Love is by far the best thing I have in my life….

4. I probably am not going to stop making mistakes….

5. Don’t shake a salad dressing bottle with the top just partially on…..

6. Because some people have money doesn’t mean they are smart, successful, are a good businessman, better than anyone else, or destined for great things…

7. I want to be happy…..not right…..

8. Jeans from Wal-Mart may appear to be a good buy…..

9. The more I do something I love…the better I get at it….

10. No matter what…some things are not supposed to work out…

again…October was a very rewarding month….a very devastating month……a very enlightening month…..a very provoking month…a month like no other….October took all of my strength…yet filled me with power….October…was one great month……

see you in November……kicking dried yellow leaves down the street…..

Listen to the song….this 8 minutes 34 seconds could just be the most incredible 8:34 of your day…..

    I couldn’t agree more. Seriously.

  2. Sterling post, Robert! What a gorgeous list. Number 7? It’s been my number one rule for years. Nothing is worth unhappiness. My October experience pretty much fits the description of yours. But when it came down to post a so long to October, I couldn’t fit it into words, much. Had to post pics. You are a beautiful kindred spirit, Robert. I’m taking this post to the bosque for a good seven mile walk, amigo. Bless your golden week 🙂
