I am a really lucky person. I have enough time (or I make time) to enjoy my arts and crafts. My inner fears made me repress the creative instinct and that made me really unhappy. I am still working on that but I will not give up on myself again.
From Dr. K I learned that I am a vata so I need to have multiple hobbies and occupations. I will try this route, now I am really happy with my preoccupations and I will try not to put so much pressure on myself. I do not want to feel sad or guilty when I need a break.
I was really struggling last month, I put everything on pause and this week I started to unfreeze.
My current projects, with pictures:
- Crocheting a scarf for my husband. I am also planning to do a hat for me, with cat ears;
I love to do this and it is wonderful for anxiety. I used to smoke and sometimes I really feel the need to keep my hands busy. I am also spending too much time on my phone, playing, so sometimes I will switch to Crocheting to take a break.
- Making Tim Burton inspired Tree decorations. I already cut the shapes from the dry clay, they need 24-48h to dry. I also selected the scenes and characters that I want in my tree. I am really happy because I have wanted this since forever and we both love that univers. Halloween and Christmas are my favorite holidays so making a mix is like a dream.
- Workbooks for my inner exploration – Cognitive Behavior Therapy;
- Dr. K’s guide – I am still postponing the meditation part because I feel I am not ready.
I hope I will keep up 😀
