Welcome back everyone! Guys can you believe that we’re in the middle of May already? What the hell?! Didn’t May just start last week? I’m going to let you in on a weird thing about me. This is the point where I start to get a bit sad. I love love long days and as they get longer there’s a little, annoying, voice in my head that says, “better enjoy it cuz the days are going to start getting shorter soon.” Isn’t that just like human nature that we can’t just enjoy what we have? Hilariously, it doesn’t matter what the temperature is on June 22 or that we technically have two more months of summer after that. As far as I’m concerned, it’s winter.
On the flipside, I am usually the first person to feel hopeful when the winter solstice is rolling around as well so credit where credit is due. I’m also always striving to being more present in the present so hopefully one of these days I’ll shut that little voice up for good. On a similar but different note, have you guys watched that Brene Brown special on Netflix called the Call to Courage? Brene Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston who has spent her career studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. I’ve watched it twice now, the first time to see what she had to say since I had not heard of her before and the second while I was building two balloon columns on the eve of my friends shower when I really needed her words to give me courage. I’m definitely planning on getting the Daring Greatly book but right after I finish reading Girl, Stop Apologizing by Rachel Hollis. My life really has become that Ali Wong joke about how your 30’s are all about acknowledging that we’re terrible people and how can we turn this shit around.
