Rest and Creating

I'm sorry I have been absent but I have felt I needed the break to get my barrings.  So much started to be piled up on me that I felt I was going to be crushed by the weight of it all.  I couldn't even step into my corner which seemed like it would last forever.  I knew I had things to do that I really didn't want to do so I went back to making a list of what needed to be done.  My list of what I don't want to do is now complained with the things I love to do.  I am finding that works the best for me especially when the don't want to do, out weighs the want to do.  All of this is helping me to focus which in peri menopause, is proving to be a challenge to me.

One of the things I have been focusing on is the She Art class I was able to take.  I am enjoying the process of watching the girls come to life.  #1, She finally believe what had been in her heart all along.  This girl has such a big meaning for me.  There was a time in my marriage that I couldn't bring myself to believe that I was really loved.  One day this past month the light bulb went on and I finally believed what I was feeling all along.  The feeling has always been there but it was the knowing that has changed things.  #2, She was the best gift she could give herself.  A background that my daughter created over a  year ago, which I am so glad I convinced her to not throw away!  The message of living life to the fullest and making it count by being yourself.        

I hope everyone will have a wonderful Easter week!!
