Well, hello March! February kind of blew by me, I must admit. It was a month of busyness and not always the best news, to be honest. Not that that should affect the blog, but sometimes (many times) it was hard to sit down and write. I’ve mentioned here before that I struggle with motivation, but I’m actively working to change that. So with that, welcome March, and let’s get on with the post!
Closing Out February
So, let’s chat about February, yeah? When I say this month was busy, it’s an understatement. I know it’s the shortest month of the year, but it truly feels like it flew by! Adding to the general busyness of the month, we had what felt like a ton of hockey to attend. We got season tickets this year and I swear to you that hockey has to have the longest season of any professional sport. Not that I mind, because let’s go Blues! I’ll write a post in the future about my experience being a season ticket holder, but that will most likely go up next month when the season wraps up.
As far as getting not the best news, I’ve talked on here before also about my autoimmune disease, Hashimoto’s. I went to the doctor this month to have all my levels checked, which I do typically every six months. This time we wound up going closer to a year in between visits and it was not good news. Not only were my thyroid levels all out of whack, but my cholesterol was just over the high side. So, my doctor and I decided to see what I can accomplish in six months without having to resort to medication for my cholesterol levels. So, I suppose I will be updating you on how that’s all working out for me as well.
What’s Coming Up in March
A lot of the content I had planned for February, lol! No, I do have some fresh stuff for March, but there are definitely some posts that I wanted to get up last month, but just couldn’t find the mental space to sit down and type them out. If I’m being perfectly honest, my mind has been quite the mental clutter space recently. I’ve been working to clear that out, and slowly but surely am making progress in that direction. It was another thing that my doctor mentioned. I need to work on reducing my stress and anxiety levels. I’ve been looking into ways to do that via meditation, yoga, things I enjoy, etc. It’s definitely something that I struggle with because I often feel guilty about taking time for myself when I know there is so much to do. And knowing that there is so much to do makes me feel overwhelmed and when I feel overwhelmed, then I typically don’t want to do ANYTHING. So then it’s just a constant spiral of wallowing in overwhelm and frustration. But that’s not what this post is about-so I digress.
Coming up in March-not a verbal vomit like that^! I’ll be sharing a fun DIY for my nature lovers, some cute spring nail ideas for your next manicure, another great local business in St. Charles, and so much more! I promise too, I will share more about my journey to living the life I want and how I am making that happen. I’m working on getting back on track with my 2023 goals, and I can’t wait to share all this with you guys on the blog and also on Instagram (you can follow me here!).
Thanks for following along, and chat with you soon!
