To what are you saying hello on this brand new Monday?
HELLO NEW MONTH | No doubt this June will be like no other – following in the footsteps of March, April, and May. There will continue to be anxiety-inducing conversations about what is the “right” way to handle things. Speculation about who opened too early, who is being too cautious, when the next hit will happen – and where. All emotionally exhausting stuff. I’m doing my best to believe that we are all doing the best we can with the knowledge we have. I admit to listening to the medical experts, and I am erring on the side of caution as I’m asthmatic, and my partner is at risk. That is the best we can do. #maskup #gloveup
HELLO JUST WRITE | I have been participating with Ali Edwards’ prompts since the first offering. They give me a chance to stretch and grow in a minimalist way. There are no rules!
HELLO GARBAGE PICK UP | I look forward and plan for it. Garbage day gives me a bi-weekly opportunity to clean out closets, bathrooms, drawers, rooms, and have it promptly removed.
HELLO NEWS | Over the years I’ve tried to reduce my news consumption which is now made hard by living with a news junkie. I’ve fallen back into the habit of listening and watching far too much of what’s happening on an endless loop. My heart breaks for all of the suffering regularly experienced in the U.S. We have our own failings, certainly magnified by the pandemic, but the destruction and looting and violence is hard to watch.
HELLO FULL MOON | The full strawberry moon is happening in Sagittarius this time around. Sagittarius is a sign ruled by expansive Jupiter, which by its nature pushes us out of our comfort zone and into the truth. Don’t hold back! Under this full moon, you have an optimistic approach to your life – you even believe things will get better even if you get into trouble. If something in your life needs a dose of optimistic pushing, now is the time to do it.
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite: I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
