Where are my flowers in the pouring rain?
April is not awesome. An hour of sleep lost. A quarter of the year down. How am I going to spring forward when nearly every day of this month so far is compressing, depressing and stressing?
I write this sipping my second Disaronno and juice of the evening. My fourth of the week. It’s Tuesday.
Anyway, my best friend and soon-to-be doctor says it gets like that sometimes. And who am I to argue with a very nearly medical professional?! In some small way, I’m hoping the concoction will serve to help me select my next holiday destination, as well as my current anxiety. Hmm…
If I had my passport at work, I’m 99% sure I would have hopped on the next flight out to somewhere warm and by the water. Not to run away from the anxiety, but to have a much needed change of scenery for release.
But no passport means no playa.
Antics aside, self-care is important friends. In fact, it’s too important for a mid-week nightcap. And now, too important for fortnightly therapist visits. I’m focusing to resolve and release this bout of anxiety in new and more consistent ways. Call it a spring clean!
Yes, we are in the second quarter of the year. Though take a moment to look at those first three months. Roch, reflect. This post is as much for me as it is for you!Self-care has to be an act of service towards ourselves; and can influence others. Ask yourself if you're truly serving mind, body and soul?

April hasn’t been awesome for me – I’ve been consumed by anxiety. But what is awesome is that I’m 10 days in. 10 out of 30. A third. 33.3%. No matter which way I do the math, April’s odds are in my favour. Come rain or… more rain by the looks of it! Only if I take responsibility to practise self-care.
So as I’m heading to buy my own flowers, share with me:
- Your reflection on the first quarter of the year
- What self-care looks like for you
- What are you resolving and/or releasing this month?
Also… Look out for my Monday Mood-Mojis on Instagram!
Cheers (my last 🥂 of the week),
