Hey babes! How’s life? I’ve already had a bank mishap in tune with Mercury Retrograde and am feeling extra chatty in tune with the Gemini Full Moon. Life is busy and sometimes I feel like I’m barely treading water, but that’s my own cognitive process that I need to break free from and decide to feel like I’m doing really well and acknowledge what I’m accomplishing instead of focusing on the deficits. It’s really easy to focus on the lack of this time of year as we reflect and think about the goals and intentions a lot of us set twelve months ago, but it’s so important to make sure we’re making note of what we DID accomplish and experience, even if it didn’t follow suit with our original plan.
Right now I’m having a flash sale in my Etsy store for 25% off your order of $5 or more. Go grab some awesome stocking stuffers! Glitter pills, themed jar kits, pins, postcards, bracelets, pencils, ephemera, books, workbooks, and more!
If you’re in the Baltimore area, I’d love to have you over my house this Saturday for a Postcard Protest Party. Let’s keep active in our communities about the things we’re passionate about! We’re in a marathon, and we’ve gotta keep up the steam of activism and positivity. If you can’t come this Saturday, what are your plans? Share below along with what’s been making you happy lately!
Pictures from last week:
