March 2020 – a recap….

March 2020 – a recap….

All I can say is wow!

I have no real words that can describe the way our whole world has changed in March 2020. Wow is about all you can get from me!

I have to admit that I am still in a state of shock that this is our current reality.

I am grieving the way of life we had.
I am grieving the uncertainty of our future.
I am grieving and that’s totally ok for now.

For someone that really doesn’t like change, March brought about a whole lot of change!

Let’s get into the nitty-gritty!

The Good:

  • Sophie & Patrick are really starting to learn to play together & the giggles coming from them playing together just melts my heart!
  • I have an amazing husband & he is right by my side as I struggle with all this change (have I mentioned I am also an empath – not an ideal way to be when it feels like the whole world is hurting!)
  • Finally, I took the plunge and published my first ‘real’ video to help people make their first video!
  • My gratitude for all of the amazing blessings in my life is growing each day
  • Katelyn James, a wedding photographer from the US (check her out here) has published an incredible document about thriving and not just surviving – she also has an amazing YouTube video about it you can watch here.
  • It’s caused me to take a step back and really curate what I am seeing on my social media, probably something I should have done a long time ago!
  • My boss is working hard to make sure that I still have a job through all of this and for that I am eternally grateful
  • The Australian Government is doing an amazing job. We truly are the lucky country & the economic stimulus/rescue packages they are rolling out really are incredible (business hibernation = genius!)
How friggen cheeky is this girl!

The challenging:

  • Being an empath, I am struggling with being anxious about other people’s heartbreak
  • Trying not to go down the rabbit hole of wanting to help everyone!
  • Staying at home more (I am truly blessed because my “home” is a farm & we have plenty of freedom to move!) – I didn’t realise exactly how many times a week I just nicked into town for the little things!
  • Sophie is still learning to share and there have been many times this month when she’s struggled with sharing with Patrick
  • Feeling a little scared at the reality of everything that is happening.
We are so blessed to call this place home!

There are definitely two ways of looking at life right now & I am working hard (note – I am not always winning at this!) to look at it from a visionary point of view instead of a victim mentality! (check out Katelyn’s PDF to understand what this means!)

I set myself some photo challenges to try & distract myself!

All I can say for now is…. Let’s see what April brings!

How did March go for you?

Are you ok?
