letter #14: the joyful micro moments
this past weekend was one of those that felt like all was well. the world was OK, people were sane, and we were all going to figure things out. i’d like to attribute this to some kind of obvious sign, but it was more so inspired by intentionally going out of my way to create novelty and inspiration throughout my days, which was a grounding reminder that I’m still mostly in control of my human experience.
here are some of the things I did that helped shift my energy:
visited the museum
went to the movies (everything everywhere all at once was GREAT)
read by the pool
went to the park everyday (even had dinner picnic at the park too)
tried 2 new recipes
bought fuchsia peonies
monotony ensures an essence of dullness that I think is too much to bear, especially these days. spicing things up, even in the slightest way, has a way of making life feel more abundant and hopeful.
try it out, you’ll see!
