Facing life and finding peace
My mind feels old and brittle and I wonder what was I thinking signing up for this. Other days I actually feel like I am exactly where I am suppose to be. Most days I just try not to think at all.
I made it through another Thanksgiving for that I am grateful. It is part of my story being dumped twice at Thanksgiving I tell myself I shouldn't let it bother me anymore but it does. This year I just accepted the emotions that flowed over me and they passed quickly. I cooked my first turkey in 6 years.
I am grateful that I am not depressed anymore and that my life is moving forward once again. I am grateful that today I have everything I need.
My life isn't just about work I am spending my free time drawing with pastels and getting better with each drawing. I also joined an out door painting group and made some new friends. We meet on the weekends and paint outside. The weather has been so nice here evidently we are the only area of the country with sunshine.
It has been good to take a break from writing and focus my creative spirit on drawing. These days I have less words in my head and feel at peace just working hard and finding joy in making art.
