My spending tracker at the beginning of the month, before spending anything. I added an extra bar this month especially for Christmas expenses. I'm filling the bars whenever I spent money in a certain category.
I still haven't decided what to do for Christmas dinner, so I'd love to ask you: what will your Christmas dinner be?
Day 17 💕💡: Write a heartfelt letter to someone!
One of my favorite things to receive is a card or letter from my friends & family! I keep them in a special box so I can pull them out if I ever need to be reminded of the love that surrounds me or I just need a pep talk!
Add something a little extra to your holiday cards this year!! You never know what your words could do for someone’s spirits! 😘
Getting ready for my Christmas trip to Prague. ❤🎄❄️
L: dit jaar ben ik begonnen met een boek waarin ik collages maak. Het is een laagdrempelige manier om mijn gedachten opzij te zetten en ook nog eens leuk om af en toe doorheen te bladeren! 📓 Een gewoonte waar ik komend jaar dus mee doorga 👍
I just realized I never documented my write everyday challenge! Here's how it went: My #nanowrimo2017 recap: 31,593 words total: I ended up writing 27/30 days. The three I missed I do not see as failures. I was tapped out on those days, and would have approached making begrudgingly. While some may say that is not the point of the challenge- the point is to WRITE EVERY DAY in my process I disagree. At this stage of life I disagree. I’m a mom to a young child, I’m at home with said child, and my energy is not limitless.
Where it depletes me, it also fills me up in a different way than anything else. I used to be a dancer, and in that life I was forever performing the creations of others. Now with writing, I’m learning to CREATE for the first time. My own voice, calling out into the world; it is both liberating and terrifying and joyful.
With this little pocket of writing, I feel I can keep standing in motherhood and military spouse life. It gives me back a little piece of myself where the rest of the time I find myself in the good work of serving others.
Simplicity. Life can seems to spin around us like a top. This is a call back to simplicity. Sensuality. Present moment awareness. I came out of meditation today to find these pretty flowers growing along the side of a busy road. Back to basics. Deep breath. Appreciation ✨
