I wrote last week about my big mistake and what I learned from it. And ever since, I can feel the rusty, old wheels turning in my brain again. Slowly inching forward – but also changing course.
As you may have read I had stopped creating and even writing. And I love them both! I love writing what is floating around in my noggin even if I only write it in my morning pages. Not so much Step 1, Step 2, Step 3. But my morning pages I ADORE!
I also adore those things I want to make just because I want to make them. I made Kugelhopf just because I was remembering my time living in Germany and the recipe intrigued me.
I love the art/craft classes I teach locally. I plan to start sharing some of them with you.
I love making my own home decor items when I can, and I love my gardens, and critters.
What am I trying to say here?
I’m changing course on this blog. Just a bit.
I have hesitated to share the lessons I glean from a typical day or in the course of writing my morning pages because I didn’t think my vocabulary was up to it (In real life I drop F-bombs like shed hair), or that no one would want to read what I wrote because I’m just a “regular” woman.
But you all have been so lovely when I write what is in my heart. I find your comments deeply touching. I’ve come to realize that my heart and your heart are very similar.
- We are all trying to find our way and become the best we can become
- We are creative
- We want to live a meaningful life
- I don’t think any of us are “well off”
- We want to be healthy and live a full life without killing ourselves in the process
- We like deep, meaningful conversations
- We like our time alone
I’m sure there is much, much more I could add to that list. (Feel free to add to the list in the comments below!)
But what I really want to say is that I plan to include some posts that are more like Journal Entries. Still some crafts, a recipe here and there, and maybe a post about the garden or rabbits but also – journal entries. Something I noticed during the day or gleaned from my morning pages.
So, if you are here for ONLY crafts you’ll still have those and you can skip the journal entries. OR you can read the journal entries and skip the crafts. It’s up to you. I will keep them separated even when a journal entry leads to a craft and vice versa.
My question is – how should I separate the journal entries so you can find them or skip them easier? Any ideas?
