I’ve been forcing myself to write one blog post a month because back in December I made a goal that I would write one non-podcast related blog post every month of 2020.
I did pretty well for January and February and then… well, we all know what happened next.
I’ve been struggling each month to come up with something to write that:
#1. Wasn’t a lie.
#2. Was worth writing.
And honestly, I’ve struggled every. single. month.
Back in 2017, I used to do monthly posts “Taking Stock” on my life and answering a few of the same questions, just as a personal update for my readers who care about that sort of thing.
When I sat down to write, those old posts came to mind and seemed like the most fitting choice for this month’s piece! So, here we go…
Making: scrapbook pages! Lots and lots of scrapbook pages! I use pocket pages, for anyone whose familiar with this sort of thing and I’ve been playing catch-up in a BIG way these past few weeks/months.
Cooking: one new recipe a month! That’s another goal I made in December and one that I’ve stuck to pretty easily, even in this weird time.
Drinking: a Diet Coke. Like, literally right this second that’s what I’m drinking. But I’ve also been super into making at-home iced caramel macchiatos.
Reading: Too many to list! As per usual, I’m working on tons of books at once. I’m caught up on my Goodreads challenge, though!
Wanting: my anxiety to chill out and our vacation this week to be super fun!
Looking: at photos from our full-family vacation in February and editing my favorites!
Playing: Honestly, I’m playing a Spotify playlist I made called “Sad Songs” right now, HAHAHA! I promise, I’m not sad, I just LOVE sad songs sometimes! (Is anyone else like this or just me? 😛 )
Wishing: I was better at time management in this crazy season.
Watching: several shows – Christopher and I are going through this Netflix show called “Dark” and Jess and I are watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I’ve never seen before. Super fun!
Enjoying: a relaxed night of hanging out, listening to music, and relaxing.
Waiting: to see what next months brings!
Liking: spending so much time with this little family of mine. <3
Wondering: what next month will bring! #justrealtalk
Loving: the book my friend Chelsea sent me in the mail!
Hoping: I can get caught up on my 2020 scrapbook soon!
Marveling: at all of the blessings in my life.
Needing: a cup of coffee, but I need to drink water instead. Boo!
Smelling: Diet Coke because I’m drinking it? haha
Wearing: the same sweatpants I’ve been wearing for an embarrassing number of days, hahaha, whoops!
Noticing: how important the little things turn out to be.
Knowing: it’ll all be okay.
Thinking: of my family and how grateful I am for them.
Feeling: Stressed. Grateful. Overwhelmed.
