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.
At the beginning of the year, I decided a fun way to capture memories would be to roundup the bright spots at the end of each month.
What a weird time to be typing out a list of bright spots.
I am normally the very definition of an eternal optimist, always looking for the good. But not so much right now, and that’s okay. If you don’t want to look at the bright side right now, it’s okay. It is so okay to need to sit in your sad, overwhelmed, scared feelings for a bit. I certainly have.
At the same time, I want to keep my promise to myself to record the month’s bright spots, even if they’re a little harder to think of right now. So:
Jack discovered goggles. You’re so welcome.
Due to all the extra time I’m spending outside, my tan is the best it’s ever been.
I’ve had lots of good reading time.
I decided to use the quarantine to start a new skincare routine from The Ordinary (so cheap!) and I’m loving it so far.
Speaking of skin, I went two weeks without makeup and my face really seemed to appreciate it.
I’ve had lots of unexpected time with my family.
I’ve had 6 feet apart front yard hangs with my neighbor.
Jack saw his first rocket launch. He proceeded to scream, “3 – 2 – 1, BLASTOFF!” He has since been asking for one every day, and also asking why he can’t go to the moon, so things are going well.
I’m realizing that I’m subconsciously separating what’s important and what’s not, what makes me happy and what doesn’t, and, best of all: CARING WAY LESS what anyone thinks about it. Because listen, the world is on fire, I don’t have time to worry about if you like me or not.
If you want, tell me a bright spot from your month. If not, tell me something that sucks. Here for you for both!
