I don't know about you but February felt like it both flew by and was the longest month on record, all at the same time. I say this because I spent most of the month in bed, sleeping away the flu and while the illness never seemed to end, it feels like yesterday when I wrote my last reflections post. Nevertheless, here we are.
My verse of the month: "Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God." - Hebrews 13:16 ESV
My SHARE action this month: Share my time with someone. Although I did spend some time at the beginning of the month mentoring a friend who is a new blogger, I didn't get to devote as much time to this as I would have liked.
Lately, I've been...
Listening: Ed Sheeran's Shape of You. This might be my song of 2017. Also, can we talk about Matt Steffanina's choreography to it?? #amazeballs
Making: all the hot tea.
Cooking: not a damn thing. Next month I'll get back in the kitchen.
Drinking: water. That's a given.
Reading: lots of books by and about people of color in honor of Black History Month.
Wanting: an internet connection that doesn't crap out every half hour.
Looking: forward to cherry blossom season.
Playing: with Snapchat filters.
Wasting: tissues, both because of the sickies but also because I've been irrationally emotional the last several weeks.
Wishing: I could sign on Facebook and the first ten posts I see NOT be people selling stuff or recruiting for their MLM opportunities. Can we go back to being social please??
Creating: some things that may or may not end up in an Etsy shop in the near future.
Enjoying: snuggle time.
Waiting: always. I feel like I've been stuck in a season of waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Liking: the Need It Nude palette from e.l.f. Only $10!
Eating: soup and Italian ice are the best on a sore throat.
Wondering: if this head of mine will ever work like it should.
Loving: my new Dr. Seuss bookmark collection I recently got from the Target dollar spot. Nostalgia at it's best.
Hoping: for good things.
Missing: how things were a few months ago.
Writing: lists, and lots of them.
Needing: a bubble bath.
Photographing: spring in bloom. Check out my Instagram where I'll be sharing all the images.
Smelling: patchouli, likely from all the essential oils I've been bathing in.
Wearing: top knots. My hair will probably start sticking in that position soon.
Following: April the giraffe. Is this poor girl really pregnant?
Noticing: an old friend has reappeared. I wonder if they will make contact.
Watching: The West Wing, non-stop.
Knowing: the tables will turn.
Craving: Easter candy: peanut butter eggs, Brach's jelly beans, and Cadbury chocolate truffle eggs.
Working: on mindfulness and self-compassion.
Thinking: about mortality. You know me, keepin' it real.
Bookmarking: TEDx talks. There's so much wisdom out there.
Opening: new books. Big reading goals in March and I can't wait to get started!
What have you been up to in February?
