My household is asleep. The dog rests at my feet. The son with remnants of Halloween makeup still upon his cheek sleeps nearby. It is hushed and I too feel the pull of sleep. But I also feel the peace of a promise fulfilled right now. I did not do it perfectly but I did make it 31 posts and completed this five-minute challenge by the end of October – woohoo! I am so very proud of myself.

As the clock closes in on midnight, I know I will sleep well soon.

And tomorrow a new challenge will begin.

As it always does with life, right? Each day is there with its promises and adventures and its beauty for us to pay attention.

Let’s engage. Let’s connect. And right now? Let’s rest.

P.S. for November I am planning to do a series of gratitude posts. I hope you’ll tune in.

For October, I’m writing in conjunction with 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes and each post is written in five minutes flat.
