Journaling About A Favourite Month

We all have favourite seasons. For many people the most popular season is summer. The sun brings about a feeling of warmth, literally and figuratively, and brings with it the thought of sea, sandals and skin. But what about a favourite month? We all have those too.

One of my favourite months is October. The trees and the ground are usually filled with colourful leaves that remind me of a vibrant artist palette. There is also a sense of expectancy in the air because the leaves are shedding themselves from the trees. This calls to mind a certain kind of death, not only of leaves, but also of autumn. It says that winter is around the corner. This is worth writing down because the duality is so stark – the simultaneous sense of beauty and the sense of death. Many times life is like this, filled with dualities.

So what is your favourite month? What is it about this month that gets to you? It could be April/May because it’s time to plant and you get to watch things grow, it could be a month in winter where you get to ski or partake in other winter sport, or it could be a month in summer where you get to go hiking and camping. Whatever the month and for whatever reason, this is something that you can journal about. These seemingly mundane pieces of information give us opportunities to learn more about ourselves. What we like and why we like them can be a window through which we look at the choices we make and help us to make more informed choices.

Go ahead, write about your favourite month.

Remember there is nothing like words in black and white to help you see where you are and where you are going.
