Yesterday was May 1st – Also known as May Day – Which was, in ancient times, a Spring celebration of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers. I’ve never actually had the opportunity to celebrate, but I envision a bright explosion of Spring festivities with flowers, dancing, and singing. Doesn’t that seem like a wonderful way to celebrate the changing seasons?
So why am I talking about May Day?
Because rather than panic because the year is ALMOST HALF OVER, I’m trying to just be excited for beautiful weather, peony bouquets, and outdoor activities.
Time to set some Spring goals for myself!
I continued working on my very serious Spring Cleaning goals this month. Between Poshmark and Thredup, I’m doing a great job of re-purposing pieces from my wardrobe, many of which I never even wore. Which just reinforces just how serious I’m about not creating more waste.
And I’ve also been making Goodwill donations at my local drop-off center – Everything from kitchen equipment to storage pieces to accessories.
As 2016 ticks by and my drive to travel continues to increase, I realize just how lucky I am to have the opportunity to see the world. Visiting new places, seeing sights that I’ve spent years reading about, trying new foods, exploring exciting cultures… It’s a privilege, and I’m nothing short of grateful that I get the chance to make these trips.
This month I was excited to share one of my favorite local organizations with you – The SF Marin Food Bank. It’s a really well-run organization that is making strikes in the fight to end hunger, and there are many great ways to get involved. Check out this post and see how you help!
Have YOU looked back at your 2016 resolutions since you made them? Have you tried setting some new goals this year?
