Do you like it when I’m this predictable? This year has been a special one because it’s the first time since I started this blog that I’ve kept to a schedule without fail (no pressure!). Unlike last year, I have been feeling a lot more like myself again. I have been winning over writer’s block, and have been fighting procrastination fiercely. After a long drought, having a burst of creativity has been exhilarating. I hope you are enjoying the ride.
We stepped into a new month this week and it’s been one of deep reflection, slow working, and necessary relaxation.
Every time I speak to people about the ongoing conflict in Ukraine that is causing millions to be displaced and has cast a shadow of terror to be cast in the air, I can’t help but express how this really cannot be happening.
“It’s 2022!”, I say as my brain still struggles to accept the reality that a war is currently taking place and a country has been invaded. The scariest part of all this is that what we are witnessing may just be the beginning of worse atrocities. I really – really – hope not.
It is encouraging to see people rise to the occasion with their voices, selfless actions, and kind donations. We’ve seen it happen before in history; the power we can have when we fight bigotry and hatred collectively. It’s been wonderful to see history repeat itself in this way. Fellow lifestyle blogger, Lauren Conrad recently curated a list of ways you may be able to help and support Ukraine which I found helpful, so click here to read more.
Last week, I admitted to you it was a difficult one in which finding Bitesize Wonders was so hard as they were not quite in plain sight. The last few days however shaped up to be better than the previous ones. I found reasons to smile between all the madness. I started by simply showing up every day, I took each one step by step as they came and did not fail to slow down when it all felt too much. With all that has been happening catching moments of pure joy can seem impossible at times, but I had a week that hid the magic in places that were not that hard to find.
I cannot wait to share with you the little big things that made me even an ounce of happy. Here are my Bitesize Wonders.
Hopefully, your week is filled with Bitesize Wonders. I urge you to count your blessings even in these difficult times. Recognise you may not have all you desire yet, but there is still beauty to be found in imperfect things. Happy Sunday lovelies!
Your restless romantic roamer
