As I have mentioned before, since I was a little girl, I have always been a fan of calendars and all the special days marked on them. I love birthdays and anniversaries and that is just one of the reasons why August has always been THE month of the year. It is the one marked with my own holidays. The one that I was born in, and so did my dad, my younger sister, my cousins, my aunt and beloved friends. It was also the bittersweet last stretch of summer vacations when I was in school. Also, my first month in college. Years later, it was the month that I moved to the United States. The month that we got engaged. And the month that we chose for our wedding the following year.
No matter how rainy and sweaty it is in my hemisphere, August always comes with enough reasons to celebrate. No wonder it is “Happiness Happens Month”!
Although this year I feel kind of blue at this time since some of my plans for August fell through, other good news already arrived.
I am now looking forward to enjoying the unexpected, and embracing the dark, but hopeful side of uncertainty.
Dear August 2014, what else are you bringing with you?
No pressure, you have 31 days to unfold…
In the meantime, I’ll give you my best…Bring it!
