When I first started this blog, my idea was to post as many crafting ideas as I could. The only issue is when you have an anxious mind like I do it is sometimes hard to focus on one thing. Or even put too much effort into my task at hand.
When I do have an idea in mind I do go all out. For instance, I made cards for a while. I loved making them and seeing the reactions from the people who received them. I bought all the materials and supplies for it, spent a lot of money and temporarily filled a void that I was feeling. My first thought was to start a card making business, but again I stopped before I could even see any kind of profit. See below:
Before I started making cards though, I made jewelry. I made rings, bracelets, and necklaces sometimes. I also spent a ton of money and focused on that. I kept thinking if I filled a void that I was feeling with crafts or tasks I would cure my moments of sadness or overwhelming anxiety I would feel. keep in mind this was all before I was officially diagnosed with anything. I really didn’t know for sure what was going on but it was something.
One of the things that I did that would help me the most was write. No matter what hobby I got into, writing was always my fall back. It was the thing I would go to when everything else failed. Or when I failed. I would see every hobby I didn’t follow through with as a failure. I wasn’t good enough to succeed. The thing is though that that thought was never true. It wasn’t that I was a failure, it was just bringing me closer to realizing what I have and what I need to do to heal my mind and body.
This blog will be my little outlet. It will be my diary, my constant and the one thing to keep me sane on the days when I feel like I am a lost puppy. I promise all posts will not be so heavy and emotional. I will have good days. I will have celebrations and hopefully I can bring you along to celebrate with me! In the end I do appreciate all of you who spend the time and read these. You are making the conscious effort in understanding someone who has mental health issues. You are helping in the stigma. You will be the reason things change for the better in not only my life but others who are suffering.
I hope you all have a wonderful evening!
