The longest month...
Well, wasn't that the longest month ever? When this year started I don't think any of us could have predicted where we are now. To start 2020 with some many plans and ideas to then have everything completely locked down has been both traumatic and truly bizarre.
March started off quite well really, I was reading lots as part of my GoodReads challenge, I was involved in a blog tour and it's my birthday month so lots to look forward to. Didn't quite work out like that though, did it? My birthday celebrations have been put on hold until later in the year and, for some reason, I just can not pick up a book. Why does that happen? The one thing that always calms my anxiety and I can't do it, my brain is too busy catastrophising everything that is going on in my little world.
One good thing to come out of this though is my quest for self development. I have started writing more, not being so afraid to share with all my social media contacts rather than just my Twitter friends. It's so easy to be a faceless account on Twitter and let people read your words, but to let those that are closest to you read what's going on in your head is a totally different ball game, but I'm doing it and, actually, it's not as scary as I thought it would be. I have also started a couple of online training courses to help me forward my freelance career. I'll keep you posted with how this goes - I may have bitten off more than I can chew, only time will tell!
I think it's safe to say, March was not a good month. So many fears and anxieties, worries about family and friends, work and finances and no clear answer or end date in sight. But, we can only take it one day at a time. So, my future plans? Get back on track with my reading, get myself organised and look after my little family.
Stay safe friends, stay home, stay in and keep washing those hands! Let's pray for a better April.
