One conviction I hold is that I am responsible for my own happiness. Therefore, I must recognize and change any aspects of life that impede joy. Cutting back on sewing to create only what interests me (right now that's clothing, decor, and gifts) will allow me to feel less like a factory, and to pursue other interests:
- I'm taking classes next semester (yeah!) for the first time since becoming a parent (yikes!).
- I'm writing. (Any volunteers to critique me along the way?)
- I'm reviving some fitness goals now that my knee is allowing moderately regular poundings again. (Running and riding partners are welcome.)
Recently, I bundled much of my "merchandise" to give away, which feels great--I'm shedding a skin and ready for something new.
