What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Today seems like to perfect day to have an extra cup of coffee (or two) and talk about life. If we were having coffee together, I’d have a lot to tell you.
I’d tell you that my heart is still so heavy over what happened in Orlando, and that I’m so disappointed in some of the people I know. I’ve seen so many tweets and Facebook statuses twisting the terror into a platform to voice their opinions on politics. It is clear to me that the only way to respond to this horrific situation is in love. This is not about political views. This is not about you. This is about a group of Americans who were attacked. And the only way to respond to that is in sorrow and in love.
Of course we’d talk about my new house, and how much I’m loving it. It feels so amazing to have so much room after living in a studio for two years. Waking up in this house still feels so exciting every day, and I want to cherish that feeling.
I’d also tell you that having an office (and my own desk!) again has me itching to write more. I hope to do a lot of that this year, but we’ll see how that goes when paired with my squawking babe. (Yes, he squawks now. Like a velociraptor. It’s adorable, but also very loud.)
I’d tell you that Chris’ residency kicks off on Monday, and I’m getting really nervous about it. I’m excited for him, I’m just nervous about the transition of balancing a lot of things by myself. But things always work out, so I know this will, too. I’d also tell you that I started a little notebook that I want to fill with 365 little things to do to get through intern year (notoriously the hardest year). I’ve got little things like trying new recipes, boring things like cleaning out the refrigerator, and fun things like going thrift store shopping. I just want to have one thing I can tick off every day on the way to finishing a really trying year. I need about 150 more things-give me your ideas!)
Now, your turn. Tell me what’s going on in your life.
