When I was younger, I did many things to let my creative side out. I read books constantly. I played guitar and sang daily. I made many scrapbooks. Cross stitching, crocheting, writing, etc. So many hobbies!
Over the last few years, I have stopped doing those things. Not really on purpose. It just kind of happened. Going through deployment, losing my grandparents and my daddy, and dealing with my husband’s PTSD have all lead to me forgetting about me. I’ve lost my way. I need to find myself again.
That is one of my goals for this year. I have several, but a big one is to be more creative. Writing, doing my crafts, playing my guitar. Ya know, not watching tv all the live long day! HA! We’ll see if that actually happens.
With my health getting so bad it’s been hard to do things that I want and need to do. Household chores are almost impossible for me to accomplish. Just getting a shower takes all my energy. It is so frustrating. Especially because most of the people close to me don’t understand how much pain I have.
I am working on my health, both physical and emotional. It is hard. But I am determined!
