It’s September, which was always an exciting time for me. My sister suggested a couple of years ago that September is another New Year, and since then, that is how I have tried to approach it.
This New Year, I am continuing to be mindful with spending/saving, I am continuing with educating myself as an anti-racist, anti-sexist, etc., halfway decent human, I am working to teach my kids to be good people, I am going to continue to declutter and remove things from my home that do not “spark joy”, and learn to live with less, (a la fellow British Columbian, Cait Flanders!!!).
And, regardless of COVID, and forest fires, and racists, and sexists, clutter, and fibromyalgia, and depression, and all the other things that are around me, I will look for the little moments of joy and beauty.
