This is a post in the Bee Love series about first-time beekeeping.
Unemployment and feeling stuck makes you think some pretty weird things. Lately, it’s been giving me a bunch of anxiety and I am not a fan. I’m usually more of a “Woe is me, everything is corrupt and the world is only getting worse” kind of a person, but this time it’s different.
I can’t stress enough how important it is to get outside. The outdoors does wonders for your mental and physical health. Lately, I’ve been using my free time to reflect, work on my physical health, and ruminate on plans for the future by hiking with my brother’s dog.
Hey hey hey yesterday was the last day to enter my second giveaway (and first Instagram giveaway!)
This post is part of the “Bee Love” series about 3rd generation millenial beekeeping and CCD.
Did you miss the GFAF Expo a couple weeks ago? Are you gluten-free, egg-free, or whatever and can’t find good snacks? Do you want to try some of the snacks I found at GFAF or are you interested in winning some free food?
My writing mentor (even though we’ve never met or talked), Augusten Burroughs, writes some pretty wonderful advice about love and life and everything in-between. In his book, “This is How,” he gave his readers some insightful advice: Who you are is made up of multiple things, but you do not have to define yourself with any of them. In essence, labels are straight-up bullshit. You label yourself.
This is not a quote. In fact, I cannot find an actual quote of what specifically this book taught me (I highly recommend it, obviously). Anyway, I want to hash out that idea here.
Assume all quotations in this piece are by Augusten Burroughs.
