Yesterday I had a stressful morning. I remembered that I had found a bumble bee inside the night before and that I had put it in a glass to release it in the morning. But I forgot. I may have cried at work, thinking about the poor bumble bee slowly dying in its glass prison. This is a picture of the bumble bee after I rushed home during my lunch break to free it 😅 I was sure I was going to come home to find a corpse and feel guilty for the rest of my life (let's be honest). But this little cutie was a trooper.
Thankful for weekends like these. There's something so liberating and empowering about carrying all you need to survive on your back and wandering out into the backcounty. Everything else just falls away. 🌿
Here's a shoutout to my number one bae Papatuanuku, for somehow managing to keep it beautiful even though we treat her like trash 😭
Plastic free July is just around the corner so here's to making small but meaningful changes that stick and help this Atua to look and feel her best.
Plant mum problems.. Made the mistake of planting my Ficus in an unsealed cement pot. The result was stunted growth and deformed leaves 😥 gave her some extra love to make up for it - new pot, a shower and gave her leaves a good clean. Lesson learnt 😭
2017, what a ride 😂
It's been a year full of firsts, I've done a lot that has scared me and that I've put off doing for a long time.. It's been difficult at times (and that's putting it lightly) but I've come out the other end better for it. The events of this year have helped me to grow in ways that I never realised were possible. I'm not really one for New year's resolutions, but here's to another year full of personal growth!
Tb to this time last year when things were veeeeery different.
