Hey, friend. Spring is here! I’m loving the warmer weather, blooming flowers and longer walks out in nature. This shift to spending more time outside is welcomed, especially with stay-at-home orders still in place. I’m thankful I live in an area with abundant parks and walkways where I can soak in the sunshine and fresh air while safely distancing from others.
For this month’s reflection, I have a few announcements to share. If you’ve been hanging out on my Instagram, you know I’ve become a dog mom again! I’ve also been sharing posts from a blog series I just completed for ClearVoice about content creation. And I’m taking time off from creating new posts for this site to take care of…me!
Say Hello to Leo!
Earlier this month I decided it was time to share my life with a wonderful furry friend again. I adopted Leo, a 5-ish-years-old pit bull mix, from Noah’s Hope Animal Rescue in Sioux City, Iowa. I had an incredibly efficient and joyful experience, despite not being able to attend any public adoption events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Leo and I have been spending these last few weeks getting to know each other, discovering how tennis balls work and snuggling on the couch. You’ll be seeing lots of him on my social feeds in the years to come.
Content for Businesses
The past two months I’ve been knee-deep in projects for ClearVoice about content creation. We tackled a series of articles to help businesses understand what it takes to really do content marketing right, from creating a content plan to knowing what types of freelancers to hire.
You can read the posts on the ClearVoice blog. Here’s my author page with all the links.
My Time to Pause
I know I’m not alone when I say, wow, surviving a pandemic is tough stuff! Watching the world collectively experience the emotional trauma of wondering each day whether we (and those we care about) will be safe and healthy is incredibly exhausting and anxiety-provoking. It also bubbles up past traumas.
I’ve been writing this blog for nearly 10 years, and I’ve discussed health challenges, emotional traumas and everything in between. I’ve shared coping strategies and the realities of living with these challenges. For the next month or two, it’s time for me to pause and focus those writing hours on me and do exactly what I preach here each and every week — self-care, self-reflection and self-growth.
I won’t be posting any new content in May and possibly June. (I haven’t decided yet.) But, I will be online occasionally and communicating across social media. I hope to hear from you there.
Until next time,
