getting used to the idea

Lately, I haven't been feeling anxious about my "purpose". If I think about it, I haven't been antsy for a purpose in well over a month.

Despite still feeling as if I have to complete my at home projects, because "I have to go work tomorrow", I am adjusting to staying home. And how have I done this, you might be asking...I have immersed myself in craft.

Yup, I have replaced my career in home and kitchen design, with beads. Beads, beads, beads. Beaded jewelry has always been a hobby for me, and now, I simply focus on it more. Some days, my fingers don't move in a fashion that I would consider "normal" for me. They feel a bit slow and sloppy. So on those days, I read a book, or take photos of my beaded works.

My beaded world has also opened me up to a lovely bunch of people on-line. One group in particular, of crafty ladies and a man, who are wonderfully supportive, immensely creative, and even funny, are making my new reality a good place to be.

Boy, I'm with you there. I am loving my crafty world of late and have shifted to that even over my writing. Of course, mine is needle and thread, but I envy you your beads. Not something I do well at all. Isn't diversity a wonderful thing. LOL.
