“A positive attitude gives you power over your circumstances instead of your circumstances having power over you.” — Joyce Meyer
That quote has always been a favorite of mine although I tend to forget it when times get tough.
I have made headway on organizing my crafting room. Going through all of my fabrics brought back memories of how I acquired them and all the joy I had sewing. Knowing that I will be back to it soon makes me very happy.
It had filled me with dread for weeks even looking at the room because every time I looked at it I wanted to clean it but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. The self sabotaging urges in me took over.
Now I just have to decide what I will be sewing first. As a goal for myself I think I will make a Christmas gift for people in my family. When I used to give them my crafts for presents – seeing their joy when they opened it and how rewarding it was to know that the time I spent on it was more than worth it. I know in the years I haven’t been crafting they have been wondering when I’m going to stop buying their gifts and start making their gifts. I think I will start with this duffel bag project to knock the dust off.
As I get back to organizing I think it might be time to oil up my sewing machine.
