the "why" - a few months ago, I saw the hashtag #1goodmoneything trend periodically. It inspired a group chat with a few friends to not just share a good money thing, but a good thing - self care, personal growth, whatever. It made me appreciate celebrating the small achievements and the wins of "continuous improvement." So, in that spirit, I'm going to share a few #goodthings each Wednesday, and I hope you do too!
#1goodmoneything: I canceled our family's AmazonFresh membership - we hadn't used it in about six weeks thanks to a new Costco opening within driving distance! That's giving us back about $15/month.
#1selfcarething: Baby UIO and I got two great runs in this week! We ended up with a jogging stroller after a series of unfortunate airline-losing-our-stroller events a few months ago, but hadn't gotten a chance to use it due to the winter weather in our non-Orlando home. Finally, spring has sprung!
#1goodmindfulnessthing: honestly, I've had a challenge calming my monkey mind this week. I think the closest I've gotten is making a deliberate attempt at using my 90 day planner to be intentional about writing down what I want to accomplish each day. The practice hasn't felt easy or natural yet, but I'm trying to get there!
