A collection of thoughts

2 min read

As previously mentioned, I am a bit sleep-deprived. Which is why I am slightly uninspired today. So, here’s are thoughts on three unrelated things.

Mother’s Day

Originally, I had wanted to write a post on Mother’s Day. I remembered that I had posted some thoughts around it last year and re-read it. It’s much more coherent than anything I am able to produce today. So rather than attempting to do so, I will just link to it here.

Me Made May

I am not participating in Me Made May this year.

One reason is that I haven’t made many new items in the last two years.

The other is that being postpartum is hard. Body-positivity is something I am very passionate about. However, I feel annoyed and a bit insecure about how two pregnancies have impacted my body.

Trying to fit into my old clothes and taking pictures of myself each day didn’t sound like so much fun to me. Is the kind thing to do what I did and skip this year? Or would it have been kinder to ignore those insecurities and celebrate my body and all the clothes I made myself? I am not sure.

Productivity and comparison

Thank you for all the positive feedback on my post on how I manage to “get so much done”. I am realising that productivity is an area where a lot of comparison happens.

Everyone seems to think that others are more productive and use their time more wisely. We feel bad when we hear about other people’s morning routines, their workload, how many books their read and how often they manage to hit the gym.

Why are we so insecure about how we spend our own time? Is it that we are unhappy with our choices or constraints? Do we think we “waste our time”? And if that is the case, why don’t we just stop?

What do you think?

As always, I love hearing your thoughts on any or all of the above. Leave a comment or send me a DM or email.
