Come tomorrow, I'll wake up new.
~Chad Sugg

So, November is going to be pretty intense for me. A lot of projects, many kites to keep in the air. Since I wasn't sure I'd be able to keep my blog-kite up along with all the others, I thought I'd try to finish my November posts early (before the month starts). Right now it's Halloween morning and I only have three done and a bunch of drafts started...wish me luck!

My plan for Wellness Wednesday is to make hand-lettered images, which seems more doable than a regular post for some reason. Or maybe it just feels like a nice break from my other work. Here's the first one, which fits with all the thinking I'm doing about mistakes:

It reminds me of the Japanese proverb "Fall seven times and stand up eight."

Do you have any suggestions about sayings I could hand letter?

One of my favorites is: Just Do It.

(And I heard it *before* Nike made it part of their ads.)

Given your month ahead, how about something having to do with remembering to breath, or being mindful, or taking one day at a time... or there's always the last line of this (attributed to Benjamin Franklin, but I have no idea if that's correct):

The optimist fell ten stories,
and at every window bar
he shouted to his friends,
"all right so far!"

Did you choose a OLW for this year? That might work well too. Wishing you luck and lots of it. :)
