Finally, it’s June and so we reluctantly welcome the rising temperatures but being to surround ourselves with plans and lots of iced lattes to keep us going. There’s always a beauty in every season and summer is no different. I got some new plants from The Sill including a Peperomia Ripple Ruby as well as a Calathea Fusion White beauty.
When I think of summer the concepts that come to mind are carefree days, firefly filled nights, winding down but also filling in as many plans as one can. There’s definitely wanderlust brewing and car rides with the windows down and the music flowing.
This is completely belated but, never late than never right? May has been a really busy month: work wise and creatively. I’ve definitely taken the time this month to have more experiences and gatherings. A few of my loved ones had birthdays this month. I think I spent more time venturing out and speaking my truth instead of sitting idly when there’s something I want.
I’ve realized that there’s a difference between being in observation (or present) versus in thinking mode which can have your thoughts jumping to conclusions or focused too much on the past or future, things in which we have no control. This month I emphasized my thoughts on what I wanted in that moment. This led me to sleep earlier and therefore I have been waking up earlier.
Lately I have been revisiting the genre of poetry. While I wasn’t always drawn to poetry books, I would often write my own & held a few verses close to my heart. The captured meaning held between short verses, the ability to convey so much emotion in the web of words always moved me.
February has been a month of transition. There’s been heartbreak, there’s been growth, buds that have been blossoming, and changes afoot. Unsteady seas have made me stronger. However, it would not have been possible without the love and presence of friends. I’ve allowed myself to go through the feels, whether it was crying my heart out at 2 in the morning or journaling brief prose.
