The theme for February's newsletter is 'loving-kindness.' in appreciation of the Mettanoia zine series by Shea Pederson featuring this month.
As I've been reading through the series, I'm struck by Shea's gentle words and calming illustrations. They ooze thoughtfulness, particularly in light of some of the heavier mental health topics that can come up throughout them.
A takeaway for me has been that reflecting on one's own experiences with curiosity and compassion (rather than judging them as good or bad) is so so important. Recognizing those moments where we can benefit by doing something enriching and healing for ourselves can make all the difference in difficult times.
This month, I plan to apply these learnings by reflecting with curiosity while journaling or in day-to-day thoughts that arise. I hope you'll join me by taking these moments to approach thoughts, feelings, and decisions that you encounter with curiosity also.
I hope you enjoy this month's vlog from thankubody's monthly newsletter, featuring tidbits from the Mettanoia series.
