So, despite the "stuff" going on around here I have been trying to keep an eye on what makes me happy, and what is that? Well, right now it is the creative process. I know that no matter how stressful life gets I can pick up a needle, thread and fabric or some yarn and sticks and create something special. I remember when I used to watch my mom knit and think I could never do that. I remember going to shops and seeing beautiful quilts and thinking I would never be able to make one. Now here I am doing both, even if I am concentrating on one more than the other right now, just the feeling of making something is sooo satisfying, and happiness inducing. I have been keeping my hands busy and my mind soothed by knitting for a couple friends the last week and a half. First I made a second cable bag as well as a cute little bag for a friend.
I have also been doing much better about getting out and walking. It is another thing that helps me to feel better. I had gotten into the habit of just closing myself off and staying inside when I was feeling down. Totally the wrong thing to do, I KNOW the sunshine (if its out there) and fresh air will help immensely...and it has. As the days are going by and walking is becoming habit I have a faint glimmer of hope that maybe just maybe I'll be able to get myself back into running again :cD How could anyone not want to get out and see stuff like this?
