I had trouble being motivated and inspired in February unless we count the inspiring Iris Apfel, who I wrote about in the beginning of the month. I was unwell for about three weeks of the month, which in February seems even longer than any other month. Being frustrated and stuck at home I concentrated my time on reading books such as The Buried Giant and Persepolis and watching tv-shows and movies that got me more inspired to learn more about different cultures.
Being stuck at home has made me dream a lot. I’ve been dreaming about a dining space and about warmer weather. My two furballs have been a big comfort and seem to be happy about me being home so much. Some enjoyment I’ve gained from using my Matt&Nat handbag when out and about and using my new favourite items from Lush. Valentine’s day brought me many lovely messages from friends and a happy smile from my boyfriend on receiving his sustainable valentine’s day cards with two lovey-dovey foxes.
I’ve had some time to research sustainability and wrote about 5 easy sustainable fashion changes and why I would change to natural cleaning products, rather than use the mainstream options. Most proud I have been about being able to keep up with regular posting! Hurray! Now I hope March will bring some more sunlight into our lives and I can go and enjoy ice skating while the rink is still open, yoga and walks in that sunshine!
How was your February?
Charity woman – I’ve seen this one woman on the streets this week several times and each time she is speaking with a different homeless person making sure they are fine, enquiring into their lives and generally caring. It is lovely!!
Ice skating – I used to do ice skating all the time when I was younger, but as I reached my teens it wasn’t so interesting anymore. Now 10 years later I came back to my love and can only be shocked at how well I have forgotten everything I knew. It is still joy to go ice skating again and I left the rink on the happy cloud!
Put money on ethical – After reading the Fossil Fuel Divestment post by Ethical Unicorn I got interested in putting money on ethical. I don’t mean by this just buying more ethical stuff, but actually starting to use a bank that is transparent and that invests in ethical companies. It is amazing what we can learn about being more ethical every day! Empowering really! Check out this post by Ethical Unicorn as well!
Bullet Journal – I didn’t think I would want to do a bullet journal, but I wanted to somehow record my yoga training so I started filling one for it and I have to admit I enjoy it. It has helped me to keep motivated and learn from what I do!
Persepolis – This graphic book/autobiography was excellent! It was interesting, eye opening and it definitely changed the way I view many things in the world now. I loved the way it was written and drawn. Although, the topic is depressing Satrapi made me laugh more than once. I recommend this to everybody!
How has your week been?
