Hey there, Darling Hearts! I hope all of you are enjoying a lazy, lovely Sunday in exactly the way that makes you happiest. Today, I’m going to shake up the usual format and give you something a little different to look at.
Just yesterday. I was thinking back on all of the things that have happened in June so far, and realizing some pretty exciting stuff has gone on! If you’re not following me on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram, you might not even be seeing all of the excitement. Because social media isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, I thought I’d make my last post of every month a sort of highlight reel of things I’ve shared, created or otherwise loved. Ready to dig in to the wonderful month that has been June?
They say it’s your birthday! Yeah, you read that right. I celebrated a birthday this month. I got to spend the day of with my family and the day after snapping nature photos with my fella. Basically, it was perfect. Plus, I got to have cupcakes twice. I mean, how lucky can one girl get?
The first issue of Tejomaya Wellness Magazine came out. I’ve daydreamed about having my own magazine since flipping through the glossy and totally unassuming pages of Sassy in my teenage glory days. This one might not have any articles about Nirvana or what certain MTV VJs do in their spare time, but it was just a blast to put together. If you’re not using Flipboard, I totally recommend it. Get your Wilhelmina Slater on!
I got to use the heck out of my new travel aromatherapy diffuser. Seriously, you guys. It plugs into the computer and everything! I’m, like, so excited about this thing.
I wrapped up the design of my first ever book. Next stop is publishing! I’m believing for exactly the right opportunity with exactly the right people to make my work a reality. I promise you, it’s not like anything you’ve ever seen. Hopefully coming to a book shelf near you very soon!
I was asked to co-teach on a project I’m very excited about. More to come on this in July, but for now suffice it to say, I’m working with one of the most talented people I have ever known and as far as first forays into the field go, I’m blessed beyond measure. So, so good.
I was able to add quite a few new followers to all of my social media accounts. Every day that this number goes up, I think “I’m legit, Ya’ll. I’m doing this for realsies.” It’s a pretty nifty feeling. I hope it never ends.
After busting up my ankle pretty badly at the end of May, I was able to return to my workouts. It feels good to be getting back in the game again. I was making great progress towards my goal before I was taken out for the past three weeks and it’s time to be pressing on until I reach that finish line! I don’t even mind waking up early to do this.
I got an opportunity to look back at my month with gratitude for all the really great things that happened and at the same time put together a post for all of my favorite readers in the whole wide world. And I totally, completely and entirely mean that. Thanks for giving me the forum to feel thankful. This is such a joyful thing I get to do, and I’m glad every one of you is a part of it.
Next month, I have a plan to give this once-a-month post a little more structure. For now, I want to leave you with a challenge. Put together your own blog post, journal entry, napkin scribbling or whatever and go over all the marvelous things that have happened within the month of June. Post your links in the comments or even just share what has made you so happy that you just have to say thanks! Let’s share our joys!
Wishing You Total Well-Being,
