I’ve been looking back on February 2021 and I decided to answer these three questions by Emily P Freeman to share what’s been happening through the month. With my Word of The Year for 2021 being ‘Yes’, I think it’s important that I try to record every yes that I say.
Every Yes Changes Something In Me
“Every “yes” changes something in me. Every “yes” is a bit more transformative. Every “yes” sparks some new phase of revolution.”— Shonda Rhimes
Name something newly important to you.
This might sound odd, but something that’s newly important, or has once again become important is for me to write every day. So although I might not actually publish a post every day, I’m writing at least one a day. In January, I decided to be brave and say ‘yes’ to writing and posting 28 days at a stretch for the #Write28Days challenge. However, as the month went on and we struggled with our very ill dog, doing the challenge seemed impossible. But then, Pablo passed on 31st January, and I knew I just had to say ‘yes’ to the challenge, if only to keep sane.
What was a moment of heartache in February?
At the risk of repeating myself. The saddest part of my February was feeling the loss of Pablo. Having had him for 12 years, it was so hard to come to terms with him not being around. Reminders of him are all around our house and so many pictures of him that kept coming up on my phone. It was hard to see how our Lucky misses him too. I felt that Jose and I could talk to each other about Pablo, but how does dog deal with the grief. She fell ill too and that was scary. Thankfully, she’s better and making her own little routine!
I know the intensity of the grief will pass, but I don’t want to deny my feelings right now. I’m saying yes to being authentic about the depth of my grief.
What’s something you look forward to in March?
I’ve been going back to my studio since 1 March and am looking forward to working on the finer details of the courses I will soon be offering. They will be online until we’re completely clear of the pandemic. I’m saying yes to empowering others to discover their creativity.
Here’s my March reminder in my Bullet Journal.
