It has been a long time since I have posted anything, in fact over a year! This blog is not about followers or readers or getting a product out there, it is my escape from loneliness. Having a computer screen that is always bright and white, willing to listen to me say whatever I want about any topic is comforting to me. Sometimes I need it and sometimes I don't. For a little over a year I didn't need it apparently, or I found solace in something else, but now I turn to Felicity for an open ear.
I spend a lot of time sick. I am not ill I am not dying I just have a crummy immune system and seem to end up in bed with a cold or a flu bug every other weekend. If its not one thing it's something else. The weather will warm up and I will twist my ankle the first nice weekend and end up back in bed, stuck, alone, cooped up, bored, yearning to be moving, talking, laughing, yet idle and downtrodden. I get stuck in my conceited cycle of self-loathing and personal pity party.
Over the past four weeks the seemingly bed-ridden state of my life has really gotten me down. I have been glued to Pinterest, livign vicariously through everyone who can go outside and run, who can go in their garden and plant, who can grace their garage and DIY with pleasure. I have used the inspirations of the pins to promote me to work toward a better lifestyle. To strive for a healthy weight, a healthy plate, and a strong immune system to fight of illness and grant me a true 'life'.
My sewing machine is sitting idle as I focus to regain health. The focus of this blog will shift for a bit. My dreams and goals for the future will dominate while successful completed projects will take a back-burner for a while. Previous projects that i have done will pop-up in retrospective posts of course but new material from my hands is few and far between.
I know my life is no more busy or difficult or challenging than any of yours. In fact it may often be less so, but to each his own struggles and right now, this is mine.
