pancakeLEFTOVERS: November

I know what you are thinking...this is NOT my usual serving of pancakeLEFTOVERS.  If you are a follower of my blog, you know that I typically begin the start of a month with a series of my favorite outtakes from the previous month. So, you are probably perplexed as you stare at this post and see nothing but new pictures on your screen. The truth is, as I was trying to decide which leftover photos to include in my post, I was lacking a lot of inspiration. As I skimmed through my November posts, I realized that each one was already filled with photos that were uniquely and perfectly chosen to convey my feelings for that day. I didn't want to share a post with photos that just didn't do it for me, because if they don't do it for me, they surely won't do it for you. So, I hope you will all forgive me for my unconventional pancakeLEFTOVERS and enjoy this fresh stack I've cooked up for you.

Nonetheless, I do want to take a moment to reflect back onto the month of November, so let's hop to it! After a series of events that forced me to get downright pensive about life, I pledged to take some time to work on myself and my happiness. Some of you might remember that this involved something I called "Natural November." For those of you who need a little reminder, Natural November was my way of shedding myself of the falsifications of life, so that I could truly embrace and appreciate everything around me. Overall, I am very happy with what I was able to accomplish in just 30 days. I joined a gym and found a new-found love for Zumba, after faltering twice in my attempts to shed myself of my beloved Chi hair straightener, I found the most amazing curly hair styling products ever created and haven't touched my Chi since, I shed myself of unnecessary negativity and cut myself loose of "dead weight," I kept myself busy by surrounding myself with people whom I absolutely enjoy working with and being around day to day, I worked harder to pursue my goals for the future, and now, everyday, I am one step closer to achieving what I know is waiting for me. In sum, November was a month that taught me never, ever, ever to settle for less than what I know I deserve.  So with that, here is a toast to an even dreamier December.
