The past 4 or so months have been full of change. I look back now and can see that I was swimming with JUST my head above the water. We moved house and I started studying after a 20-year break. Both very exciting things that have since brought great joy and growth. Over this time I stopped stitching. I mean any form of stitching. Now stitching is my meditation, my mindfulness practice, and my outlet. I didn‘t realise how much it calms me UNTIL I had a PANIC ATTACK on the train going into college 3 weeks ago. Now if you‘ve ever had a panic attack you know how awful and powerless you feel. I won‘t go into the details, but I will say that it gave me a MAJOR wake up call.
Take time to do the things you love, the little things that may seem insignificant or a luxury to some. Doing my hand sewing a few nights a week keeps me sane and most of all makes me happy. Since hitting the dip in the road I am now back on track and I can see the sunshine and rainbows ahead.
I‘ve picked up my Green Tea project and have made it a goal to finish by Christmas time this year.
Have you experienced a dip in the road?
