Trick or Treat

October 2016


Happy October. When I think of October, I think of Halloween. I smile when I remember getting out of my speech class early with a chocolate treat if I could pronounce trick or treat correctly. When I was young, pronouncing the r sound was hard for me. Fast forward to the present time and now my Halloween treats include nourishing my mind, body and spirt. In addition to enjoying mouthwatering sweet treats, I may get a massage, take a class that interest me, or join a friend to take a walk. You see, now, I have broaden my definition of a treat. A treat is a form of self-care or self-love. I would encourage you to complete extra self-care to recharge your batteries before the busy winter holiday seasons.
