Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.

October 5th - willing hearts are full of love
It's kind of bittersweet. The human spirit is not measured by the size of the act, but by the size of the heart.
We all have bittersweet moments. Times when joy and sorrow compete with one another to make up the hours and the days. One moment we are abundantly happy and the next we’re saddened.
When we talk about a willing heart, we are basically talking about feeling that there is something we want. Without wanting to do it we will never do anything. Wanting to do something is a powerful thing. With it you can lose weight, keep your house clean, save money, get out of debt, or reach any other goal in life you may have set for yourself.
Life at best is bittersweet.
We do some things because we need to do them, but it is the things we want to do that we enjoy and feel fulfillment in. The difference in in wanting to and needing to is like that bittersweet moment.
Memories, even bittersweet ones, are better than nothing.
