Weekend mornings, I bloomin’ love them.
These weekly posts have quickly become my favourite to write. In an online world where everything is so filtered and edited, it’s my chance to get real with you – a quick debrief of how my week has been before cherry-picking the highlights.
It’s been an eventful week but most importantly, my emotions have been pretty neutral. There have been no serious dips in my mood which I’ll take as a win (and it’s probably one of the things I’m most grateful for).
Highbrow – Highbrow is a free email course subscription, where you’re sent a daily lesson on a course that you’ve picked off their site. Each course lasts 10 days and the emails are highly digestible, roughly a five minute read which is perfect to take in over a cuppa mid-morning. I’m currently learning all about self-publishing a book since that’s the aim of the game this year. Head over to Highbrow to check out which course takes your fancy.
My Twitter community – Online communities can be wonderful things, and I’m lucky to be part of a small Twitter community of sassy, likeminded gals and guys. Forget the filters of Instagram, we share elements of our every day; the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’m always grateful for how they have helped me through some pretty dark times.
The Magic by Rhonda Byrne – I spoke about this book in my post on Thursday, and how it’s helped me to be grateful and to see the positives in my every day life. The book is split into 28 days, each day with a new ‘task’ to practice gratitude in different areas of our lives. I’m currently on day 8 and even though I’m not expecting miracles by the time I’ve finished, it’s certainly helping me to focus on positivity.
It is of course Chinese New Year this weekend, and we have family visiting so I’m not sure if I’ll have time to write and publish my usual Sunday post. Once festivities are out of the way and normality has resumed a little, I’ll be back.
