Transformation Tuesday: What happened in March?

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I’d like to do a wrap up on March 2021. I’ve never been one to keep up with the trends but the trends follow me on instagram and on the blog (which I read a week later anyway) so I feel I’d be a copycat to post about something just because everyone else did.

However, I’ll include these highlights, that my fellow bloggers talked about, in this post, as well as my highlights.

March 2nd 2020 I published my 1st book Motherhood in Poems

So March 2021 was the anniversary of my 1st book. I wrote a blog post about it.

March 8th was International Women’s day

International Women’s Day, also known as IWD for short, grew out of the labour movement to become a recognised annual event by the United Nations (UN). The seeds of it were planted in 1908, when 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter working hours, better pay and the right to vote (source BBC).

March 11th was COVID-19 anniversary

On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the outbreak of a new type of Coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, that causes COVID-19 respiratory disease, a global pandemic.

March 20th was the 1st day of spring

In Spring, flowers bloom.
Bears come out of their hibernation, and I come out of my depression.
Spring allergies are not fun, but they beat the winter flu.

March 21st was Mothers day in Lebanon (it’s May 10th in America)

To all the mammas out there, happy mothers day.

March 22nd was children’s day in Lebanon (it’s November 20th in America)

To all the parents out there, it’s childrens day! Hug your little ones extra longer and tell them how much you love them.

March 28th was daylight savings time

I actually love daylight savings time (the spring forward not the winter backwards). I feel like I have more time during the day to be productive, especially in the morning, unless I’m feeling down. In that case, the days are too long and the nights are too short.

As I wrap up March 2021 in a neat pink bow, I roll my sleeves up for April. But this isn’t just any April.

Ramadan is coming in 2 weeks!

This month is the holiest of all months in Islam, next to Dhil Hijja (the month of Hajj).

Why is this month so special? Read all about my last Ramadan here.

So instead of making daily and weekly goals for April like I’ve been doing every month since November 2020, I’m going to make Ramadan goals!

I already wrote a rough draft, downloaded some images from pinterest, printed out a Ramadan Activity book for my 6 year old son, and I’m so excited!

Can you tell I’m excited?

Let me know what milestones you reached in March.

  1. This month flew by but looking back there were definitely some important events and anniversaries! Here’s to a happy and (positively) eventful April!
