Whew…. Trying to keep it Together.. One step at a time…

Everything seems so chaotic right now. Trying to live in the ‘new’ normal, trying to keep up with everything going on. Families struggling, riots, Viruses, social distancing, news that is negative everyday. I need some happy joy. It would be nice to read the news and see uplifting things in this dismal time. Of course here I am talking about all of the negativity. But it can just be hard. Sometimes, it can just be hard. I will aim for a more positive post later. Just wanted a whew moment. 🙂 Copyright of peach & bubble photo- 2017

Ridding my mind of the trash… Cleaning out the closet…

I have been trying really hard to change some things in my life and I realized I needed to start in my mind. So I am sorting through from childhood to now. From childhood, I am trying to throw out things that were taught by the influences in my life that I do not agree with now. I am trying to sort out the things that I learned as a teen that caused me to have some off center beliefs that I need to box up and throw out. And I am learning that I have to find me and just exactly who I am, what I believe myself, what I want to do as a person and what I can do to change some of the negatives into positives in a battle I fight. The great thing is that I am learning and doing.

So I have started woodworking….

I have started using cut wood and a wood burning kit to make several designs and play around with it to see how I like it and I love it. It is not only fun, it keeps my anxiety at bay, it is challenging and it turns out so pretty! I am now deciding what to wood carve, what kind of images and if I should paint them or leave as they are. But either way, a new adventure, new art.
