Started celebrating what I loved about each week by selecting five moments to highlight.
I embraced writing in a journal again.
I enjoyed time with my family.
I resolved to limit my contact with negative social media.
I cherished many hugs and conversations with my kids. The conversations with the teen are private (girl talk!) but Atticus is at that age where the adorable conversations are plentiful (for example this one and this one).
I revitalized my reading. Sure, I only finished one audiobook and one book, but I enjoyed them. I purchased books, read more blogs, watched more booktube, and thought about what I read on a daily basis. I even posted four reading updates (1, 2, 3, 4) I would have finished my second book yesterday (just 30 pages to go in The Professor) but a puking toddler quickly obliterated time to read.
I’m back to making things. I’m knitting, stitching, AND baking again. It feels wonderful to be back to creating things for people to enjoy even if it takes away from my reading time.
