Currently : April 2019

It’s the (day after) the first Wednesday of the month, so it’s time to see what I’m currently up to!

Currently

Experiencing : A little bit of a mental funk. I don’t know what exactly is causing it – not enough sleep, water, vegetables, whatever – but I just feel kind of blah and unhappy and self-critical right now. How do you handle those low points in your own life?

Appreciating : My husband and parents for all they do to help Charlotte and me, and Koopa and Charlotte for just being adorable and fantastic (most of the time…ha!). Oh, and sunshine. Always, sunshine!

Wishlisting : Clothes on Amazon! I see so many cute recommendations from other bloggers, so I put them straight on my Amazon wishlist to buy…eventually…

Posting : Not very often, even though I want to post more! I always think that I should take some time on Saturday or Sunday and write out posts for the week, and then I don’t! I think it could be related to the mental funk I’m experiencing though, so maybe as that starts to lift, I’ll write more.

Considering : Mother’s Day Out programs for Charlotte! We are so fortunate and thankful that she can stay with my parents while we work, but my mom and I have discussed potentially having her start a program in the fall just to get her used to being around other children and in a little bit of a routine before she starts Pre-K (!) in Fall 2020!

What are you currently up to?

Linking up with Anne for Currently and Penny for Thinking Out Loud Thursday!

  1. Thanks for linking up to Thinking Out Loud Thursday! Hope that funk you’re in is starting to lift. When I find myself in that shape, I literally make a list of things that make me happy and try to do one a day. Not huge things, but small things like play my favorite music or drink a cup of my favorite hot tea. Good luck finding your happy!

  2. I spent a lot of last year focusing on gratitude an mindfulness, and a lot of the few years before working on clearing my schedule and practicing self-care. I was dealing with some really bad anxiety but am feeling more back to my old self now. Keeping my plans light really helps me, and scheduling a lot of fun time… but also keeping up on the clutter helps too. Little things like a yummy dinner out or buying myself some flowers always makes me smile. Revisiting an old chick flick that I loved, or doing my nails at home with my girlfriends always brightens my spirits! And mid-work day walks! 🙂 Good luck, it’s never fun to feel in a funk! Oh yeah, and having things to look forward to. I have a countdown app on my phone, even for things like a new Disney movie coming out or a concert we are going to is fun. Big or small plans can be things to look forward to for me. 🙂 XO – Alexandra
