Weekend Confetti Vol. 17
May 1 , 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! Cheers!
May 1st represents several fun days:
May Day is the most obvious although it isn’t celebrated widely. I think that’s a shame, because the idea of May Baskets is really lovely!
The most exciting two minutes in sports starts tonight at 6:50pm EST with the Kentucky Derby. Even if you aren’t a rider, watching the horses Run for the Roses is impressive. Almost as impressive as how they make the famous rose garland. Oh, and don’t forget the HATS!
Tomorrow, May 2nd, is International Harry Potter Day! You could spend all day re-watching the Harry Potter movies (20 hours) or if you need some magical inspiration (that requires slightly less time), look here.
Looking ahead to Wednesday and Cinco de Mayo (which has an interesting history), I’m thinking about tacos and tequila. Or a Margarita popsicle, anyone?
6 ways to support your wellbeing (that don’t involve squats). Love these.
One of my favorite authors opened a bookstore!
8 Books to read when you are stressed. (Yes, please.)
Send an encouraging text.
Being kind IS cool. Just ask Ted Lasso.
Your rose, thorn and bud.
Lovely pandemic magazine covers.
Where to hide things at home. Clever AND hilarious.
How to donate beauty products.
How to create more time for what matters.
Rethink how you view introverts. (All true, btw.)
And this girl.
This week’s Kindness Intention: to write some love letters. (If you’ve never heard of More Love Letters…check out how you can encourage a complete stranger! I love their mission!)
And here is some kindness I found out in the world to make you smile at the goodness of people.
And lastly, how we should all start the day.
What is a Kindness Intention?
It is a way of keeping kindness more intentional in my own life by setting a weekly goal of kindness. And hopefully inspiring you to do something kind in your own world!
Happy Weekend, Joy Ambassadors!
This post brought me such peace and virtual hugs. Although, I have never had children, which I believe was a subconscious choice, I do understand the conflict of guilt, grief and happiness. How can you find a new happiness and joy when you are still grieving and gave, what I call, “caregiver PTSD”. I choose to be happy but allow myself the time to grieve. Love you and your weekend confetti !
I’m so glad it resonated with you! 💗
