March Goals

It seems a bit surreal to have reached March again. A sentiment that I’m sure is felt by many right now, but it is hard to believe it has been a year since our world has been flipped upside down, and maybe even harder to believe that we are still in the midst of it. I remember thinking that I’d only be working from home for two weeks; surely by May all would be well. Now, here we are, just shy of a week since everything began to close a year ago, and more than a year since we’ve seen or hugged many loved ones and friends.

That feels overwhelming, doesn’t it? But I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that as I reflect on March, I also think of the joys that have occurred in the past twelve months: we learned to make time and to reach out to our loved one; spend more time outside; saw communities come together for the greater good; friends expanded their families; found a greater appreciation for travel than ever before; and cherished the little moments in time that we usually sprint right by.

As we look ahead, I can’t help but think of the symbolism of this moment with the arrival of spring. The trees are budding and soon they will bloom. The sun will stay with us a few seconds longer each day and the air will begin to be embrace us in with a warm breeze. This is the season of hope and renewal. Spring is coming, friends!

February Goals:

  1. Decide how to observe Lent
  2. Celebrate Valentine’s Day with JBC
  3. Complete a health-focused activity once a week
  4. Add six patches to my patch blanket
  5. Bake a sweet treat!
  6. Choose a new bedroom set (I was super optimistic in setting this, rolling to next month and hopeful of finding what we are looking for!)
  7. Plan Quarter 1 blog content
