It’s almost the end of March and look, we’re already one month into autumn.
Before I tell you about what I learned this month, here are some fun links you may have missed:
If you’re doing a 52 photo project, you should be on week 12 or 13, depending on which day you started. Here are some tips.
For the stationery lovers out there
For those who hate filing (I’m with you!)
Fresh takes on relationships and connection
Here’s what I learned this month:
Having mental and emotional stress weighs you down physiologically
I had a meeting this month and seeing this person this time vs last time was amazing. He’d made a decision in his business to ease some considerable mental stress and you could visibly see how lighter he felt 🙂
It was quite eye-opening and a good reminder that we may not say things but our bodies are shouting them loud and clear.
A podcast is all about the sound… and voice
I actually told a friend about a new (at the time) podcast, listened to a few episodes myself and decided I didn’t enjoy it.
I decided to try again after about 4 – 5 months so I downloaded 4 episodes based on their description but no, I could not even finish listening to one 30-minute episode.
“I can’t stand all the laughing” – something I never thought I’d say but it’s true.
I can read the blog, but the podcast drives me nuts… in a bad way 🙂
My imagination is worse than reality
I had my dental procedure scheduled for the first week of March.
I don’t like the dentist at the best of times so I was really very anxious.
And…. it was a million times better than I expected.
The only real pain was on the days I did lots of talking, like weekends with the kids 🙂
It’s so much fun shopping for others
I’m participating again in my friend’s library project so I briefed the kids, and off we went to the bookshop to choose 4 books to help build a library.
My gosh, it was so fun choosing books – much negotiation happened but finally we chose 4 Enid Blyton books in a series as we felt that would stand the test of time 🙂
If you believe in the value of reading and would like to participate in some way, please click over, read and order a book or more for the project. If you’re not local, Readers Warehouse, Takealot and many other online retailers offer shipping directly to the Cape Town address.
And that’s all for now.
