So today marks the end of the third week since I have quit working. My personal hiatus. I can't believe it has went by so quickly. As I mentioned in my last post, I am making some changes in my life. Quitting working was the first step. I have spent my time off trying to get things in order so that I can focus on my health and my crafting. I have been cleaning house (when I wasn't feeling like crud and doing nothing) and trying to work out a rhythm to my families daily needs and plan our meals instead of just dealing with it as it comes up. This hasn't been easy, and I am not quite finished, but I felt that I needed to mark my progress.
I remember that I once had a plan for my life. It was NOTHING like the life I have had and it never will be, but I have to try to get what I always wanted to get, only with a few minor differences of course. There are just some things that will always be different. I have spent a long time regretting, and secretly hating, how my life has turned out. I am starting to come to terms with it. I understand now that it is done. I can't change the past but the future is still malleable. The time has come to pick myself up, dust myself off, and make a change, in myself and my life, that I can be proud of. I would like to thank you for your patience and want to let you know that I am making progress, albeit slowly, and that things are looking favorable to me being crafty and artsy again. I expect to be more productive within a few more weeks and I plan to document my artistic tendencies on here more often. So please check back often.
