I've received a lot of encouragement from friends and family in this new journey of self exploration, and good advice as well. This has been very helpful and I thank each of you that has shared your thoughts with me.
One common theme I'm hearing is a request to get busy creating again since that was such a large part of who I am.
I'm doing this in a myriad of ways. The singing is certainly one of the newer ones, but there are some hands on methods as well.
I recently dragged out all my quilting stuff and after doing some cutting of fabric and planning got totally overwhelmed and packed it all back up. I think I need to just pull out a project or two since it was just too much to take in.
Now that I have the massage table I would like to have a new quilt to put over it. I have a couple of projects that have already been started that might work nicely for this and reduce my pile of "stuff" to be finished.
I also have designed a new case for my pool stick since I don't like the one that was given to me. I love the design process the most.
Bit by bit it will all come together. This rebuilding of ones self takes time and a great deal of patience.
Long Live the Queen
