It feels good to be writing today.
I’ve had a little break from the blog. It wasn’t on purpose; I think what happened was, my June 28th post emptied me out (read it here!), and I’ve been feeling inspired to do more creative writing.
I haven’t done a check-in for a long time. I’m not really in love with my format for doing check-ins, honestly – but I do find it helpful to take a moment to evaluate where I’m at and how things are going. Hopefully I’ll eventually find a way to check in that’s more fun. But, for now:
My last check-in was on February 20th. (See? If my check-ins were more fun, I’d do them more often!)
💖 I’ve written twelve posts about nourishing my #heart by spending time with family, friends, and other kindred spirits. This has been flowing pretty naturally for me. Anytime with Teddy and Tee is amazing #heart food. And we’ve been doing a pretty good job of making plans to spend time with family and friends, which is always a challenge for my little family of introverts.
☯️ I’ve written thirteen posts about nourishing my #soul by engaging in activities that bring me peace and contentment. Solid.
💭 I’ve written seventeen posts about nourishing my #mind with podcasts, books, and other brain food. Consistently my best category.
🏃 I’ve written seven posts about nourishing my #body food with exercise, activity, and healthy food and sleep. Ugh. It’s hard to be a full-time working mom with a one-year-old and still find time to work out. I try to take walks with Teddy; I’ll try to take more. We shall see.
🌱 I’ve written four posts about nourishing my #spirit by doing things that are new, different, and/or challenging. Not bad. I think I forget about this category frequently.
Coming soon – (hopefully) a more fun way to check in, and a snapshot because my head is full of thoughts about all the things.
