It seems like everywhere you turn these days someone is talking about trauma. And I…
Let’s got for week two of what’s on my Mind, hmmm?
I am having an issue commenting on blogs that use wordpress. See, in order to comment I have to login. And, well, I have a very complex wordpress password. It’s not that I can’t remember it because I have it. It’s more that I don’t want to be logging in to wordpress all over the internets that way. Which is all just a way of me saying, if you use wordpress and I’m not commenting . . . don’t think I’m not reading. I am.
I have this habit of pinning lots of recipes I want to try on Pinterest. I have several boards for recipes, from Friday Night Snacks to All Apps All the Time to Eat Your Veggies. But what tends to happen is that I save a recipe and then . . . I forget about it . . . or I remember about it but I can’t remember where I saved it. Yeah. It’s a mess. So I’m wondering. How do you track new recipes you want to try? I’m experimenting with EverNote and hoping I might use that to remind myself of the things I want to cook but it’s not a perfect solution and I’m hoping you might have one.
Last week Gretchen and Elizabeth discussed pandemic regret on the Happier Podcast. They went on for a bit about all the things we should be doing and how we’re going to regret not doing them when this is all over. You know what I say to that? Bullshit. Because this is a lot to handle. Masks and PPE, hand washing and shortages of things we never anticipated (I’m still waiting on the freezer we ordered in May when ours died) plus figuring out working from home and remote learning. So if you aren’t cleaning out your closets or baking the perfect sourdough loaf or learning Spanish . . . it’s OKAY. Really. What you are doing every day to absorb these changes and incorporate them into your life is enough. YOU are enough.
And that’s what’s on my mind this Monday.
