If you had asked me on March 1st where I would be on April 1st, I would have responded with a variety of answers. “Probably at work.” “In New York City.” Or maybe, “On the subway” or “Watching TV with Ryan on our couch.” And if you had then told me that all of those were wrong, I would have been extremely confused.
And well, that’s exactly where we’re at. All of those would have been wrong, because I am at home in Florida. I’m away from my city, the subway, my coworkers, my office, and even Ryan… This is a really tough time, and I’m willing to bet it is for you too. None of us saw this as the way we’d be spending April 2020.
To those who are hurting from this situation, my heart goes out to you. I am closely following companies to see how they are responding to this, I’m donating where I can, and I’m trying to keep a positive outlook on everything that I can. Last Sunday I shared a Coffee with Jordan Lee Newsletter with some ways to spend this time at home. (If you missed it and would like to receive it, just let me know.)
If you know me, then you know this blog is a place where I want you to feel like we’re just sitting down over coffee. So I want to make sure you know that anything on your mind is welcome here. Feel free to comment, DM, etc. whatever it is you’d like to talk about it. Whether it’s something painful, something fun, or just something random like how the weather was actually pretty great today. It doesn’t matter what it is you want to talk about, my inbox is OPEN 💌
Without further ado, I present the April 2020 Mood Board. I never envisioned creating one that focused so strongly on staying-at-home and self-care, but honestly, as I was working on it, I realized, wow, I’m here for this. I am ready to dive deeper into the things I don’t “have time to do” during real life. I am ready to have more time for my hobbies. More time to relax. More time to take a moment to simply breathe. While there are a lot of scary and painful things happening right now, there are also some positives, and those are what I am choosing to focus on this month. I hope you will too♡
