monthly Voice: April

monthly voice: April on the Geoffrey and Grace blog

Things look a little different around here. I don’t just mean the way that the blog looks (although that is different too). The new design is not 100% finished yet, and the blog will probably sit in this ‘nearly done state’ for a little while.

Originally I started the Monthly Voice to let you know where I have been finding inspiration each month, and to share things that have captured my heart. However I spent most of April trying to slow down and reconnect to my heart and find any form of inspiration at all. Occasionally inspiration would strike, but it would quickly dissipate into a fog of tiredness.

Oddly, even though really good things have been happening recently, it was one of the most challenging months I have had for a while. I’m experiencing this disconcerting mix of feeling stuck, yet also feeling like I am right on the verge of something. I have only just figured out that fear is playing a big part in holding me back, but I will write more about this soon.

Today, the 22nd of April, is Earth day; A chance to think about this wonderful planet of ours that we all call home. The Earth Day movement was created 46 years ago to spread awareness to make sure we are all doing what we can to reduce our impact on the world, keeping this incredible revolving rock of ours healthy and thriving for generations to come.

Sarah-Lou from Lapinblu and I have organised an Instameet for this Saturday the 23rd of April to coincide with celebrating Earth Day and to help make others aware of the Earth Day movement. If you are a regular reader you will know about my love for Instagram, not only because it’s a place to share wholehearted moments captured through photography, but also because it is a social network that has a wonderful sense of community. Instameets are a great opportunity to connect with some of the brilliantly creative people you get to know online, in real life.
