Weekend Confetti Vol. 14
April 10, 2021
Welcome to Weekend Confetti!
Here you will find your weekly dose of interesting and merry miscellany that you didn’t know you needed to know. I hope it adds some joy to your weekend! Enjoy!
I got all excited when I read that today was National Hug Your Dog Day! That sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it?
BUT. Then I read this. So maybe not.
Luckily there are other ways to show my sweet Lucy-girl some love, thank goodness!
Some dogstagram cuteness to add to your feed. Because seriously, who doesn’t like to look at pictures of cute dogs??
April is Financial Literacy Month. I know, I know…that doesn’t sound especially worthy of a confetti cannon.
But since we are all trying to be responsible adults here (at least most of the time), I wanted to share a few things that might be helpful!
Budgeting 101 (a refresher is always a good idea)
My own personal struggle is understanding investments. Here are some free investment classes you can take (this is on my to-do list!) and the best investing blogs of 2020 if you could use a little help in that department as well.
Erika Kullberg answers some of your tough financial questions. (I really like her.)
It’s also National Poetry Month! Now, before you sigh and roll your eyes, let me tell you a secret.
Or sign up for a Poem-a-day!
Here are a few of MY favorites:
Click this link and scroll down to read this year’s Poem in your Pocket selections! (They are super short…to fit in your pocket!)
If all that is still just too much, perhaps just adding some poets to your Instagram feed (right next to the cute dogs) will be just enough!
This week’s Kindness Inspiration: I’m starting to go out a bit more (after a year of staying in), so this week’s Kindness Intention is to make a few positive notes and leave them on the bathroom mirrors in stores when I run errands. If they are already in my bag (with tape), it’s no time at all to leave a positive note for others to find. Easy peasy!
And here is some kindness I found out in the world to make you smile at the goodness of people.
And lastly, a Tiny Poem to the World.
What is a Kindness Inspiration?
It is a way of keeping kindness more intentional in my own life and hopefully inspiring you to do something kind in yours!
Happy Weekend, Joy Ambassadors!
