Feel free to skip this post because I don't have any new progress to share today. I'm just going to share a few thoughts that have been rattling around in my head.
There are some situations that we can't control. We just have to ride through them and hope for the best that we can withstand them, and outlast them. And try to hang on to our sanity in other, happier things. Some days are harder than others, but we lean on our family and friends, and they help support us through these tough times. I am especially grateful that I have such a wonderful, supportive family and friends, to help me through the stress of the past few years.
I am also grateful that I have fun hobbies to help me focus my thoughts and energies on positive things.
That being said, if an activity that started out as a fun becomes stressful and more like work, it's time to seriously evaluate whether I should continue that activity. So I will be doing that over the next few weeks and months. My mind is almost made up regarding this activity, but I need a little time to step back, let it simmer a bit before making a final decision.
Don't worry, it's not actually as extreme as it sounds - I'll still be quilting, sewing, and cross stitching, crocheting, knitting, and beading, and sharing my progress with you. I still totally enjoy all of that. :) Now I think I'll go do a little sewing. Thanks for listening, especially with me being so cryptic.
