Happy almost April! I’ve been meaning to post this for awhile (as usual), but honestly what’s held me back is trying to think of what I would write about this month.
I’ve felt busy this month, even though I haven’t necessarily been super busy, if that makes sense? I feel like I’ve always got something going on – something I have to get done, someone coming over, somewhere I have to be. It’s like sometimes I don’t get the chance to even sit down and have some peace, and when I do I just don’t have the motivation to do anything else.
I’ve seen others post similar feelings, and I think a lot of it still has to do with the coronavirus and feeling like things aren’t normal. I used to have a set work schedule, used to know when I would have free time, used to be able to make plans last minute and not have to worry about how clean/safe people around me are being. With all of these things to worry about, its hard to find time to do things that I enjoy. I’m managing it well I think, but still wish for some sort of normalcy and not having to worry so much about things.
I’ve really focused on those things this month and have been making attempts to do the things I like. It helps that the weather has been better.
I took off my regular job last week and one morning it was really nice outside. I made myself a cup of coffee and drank it on my deck before spending some time cleaning up an overgrown tree in my yard. It felt really good. It felt like I had done something for myself for the first time in forever. I need more of that.
I don’t really have many other updates for the month. It was pretty average looking back. I am ready for more nice weather and hopefully more days for myself. We’ll see how April goes!
