Hello dear reader,
While melt-downs are definitely a part of living with chronic illness/pain, they aren’t what I want this blog to be about. The point to writing this is to try to find positive ways of handling this life. So if you’ll give me a do-over, I’d like to try this again.
Living and enjoying it, takes some creativity. I’ve come up with a few tricks, which help to keep pity-parties to a minimum. I’m hoping I’ll learn some tricks from you as well.
What relaxes you? Cleaning relaxes me. I’m really anal about my house being clean, or so I’ve been told. It just stresses me out when it’s dirty. So cleaning helps. There are a lot of times I can’t keep up with it, but it sure feels good when I can! Is that weird? probably. But whatever works, right?
Working on crafty stuff relaxes me about nine months out of the year. October through December feels like a mad dash to get things finished on time. Here are a few things I’ve made:
Those are things I’ve made as gifts for people. As long as it isn’t the crazy Christmas months, making things like these relax me.
Before I finish this up for today, I really want to thank you for your understanding and compassion when the dark side was showing. Thank you for all of the well-wishes I received.
Until next time…
