It’s been a long week of wacky, hasn’t it? Frankly, I’ve found political goings-on stultifying where writing is concerned. I can’t focus! I’ve decided to pull myself out of the funk as much as possible by focusing on ten things that made me happy this week…because they are out there!
10: The Self-Care Warriors series from Eloiza Jorge at Deepening Wisdom has been wonderful. This post about nourishing ourselves was particularly lovely. Check out the entire series for some encouragement to treat yourself.
8: This week has finally had consecutive days of SUNSHINE! And the weekend will be glorious! Vitamin D!
7: Together with other parents, I learned how to strip roses and prep bouquets for a successful fundraiser for my son’s grade. Check out RMerrittFlowers’ IG account here.
6: Valentine’s Day for me and my husband included an exchange of cards and nothing more. You have to know me to understand how that made me very happy. 🙂
5: My kids both had a No Cavity visit to the dentist! Woohoo!
4: I got back on track with the Whole Life Challenge. Now to work on more exercise.
3: I completed all the recommendation letters I owed to my graduate students.
2: I finished and turned in a book review I’d been holding off on. Now I’m giving myself a break by continuing to read Sady Doyle’s Trainwreck, which I’m really enjoying so far. And learning a lot about literary history AND pop culture.
1: My son turned 10. (This is both something that made me happy and nostalgic.)
What are some things that made YOU happy this week? Try to find at least ten things — they’re there.
On the moonshine at yeah write.
