Charting a new path often includes... 🏵Letting go of toxic relationships 🏵Embracing more self care & love 🏵Protecting time & energy 🏵Breathing deeper 🏵Auditing inner circles 🏵Celebrating small victories 🏵Becoming more vulnerable 🏵And most importantly: having more quiet conversations with The Lord.
Our moral responsibility is not to stop the future, but to shape it. To channel our destiny in humane directions and to ease the trauma of transition - Alvin Toffler
Change is hard, guys. It's scary. Boy, do I get it. Yet, change is the only constant in life. . . .
I remember when I was growing up, my mom's husband would say all the time, "the only certain thing is that there is no certain thing." I would just sluff it off, thinking crazy old Fu**3r talking out of his ass again 🙄, and think else about it. . . .
As I grew and changed and got comfy cozy, some shit would happen, causing massive changes. I would cry, kick scream, FIGHT it tooth and nail (I was super childish) and accept in the most difficult way, the change. Then repeat. Several times. And a few more. Kicking myself that mom's husband was right ((don't tell him that)) And something clicked. I accepted the changes. Hell, I WELCOMED them! . . .
What clicked? Education. Purpose. Learning that EVERYTHING is NOT in my control. Learning that there are more things than you think IN YOUR control. I have several mother figures in my life, and one in particular has saved me time and time again. One things she hates is the saying, "it is what it is". I didn't get it for a while. But I thought on it. A lot. And dang it, she's right. It is NOT what it is. If something is taking your happiness, your joy, your health, the well-being of your kids, it is not okay! Change that shit!
I feel I have a moral obligation to help others. I love Sharing... Easing them into it. Dipping a toe instead of pushing them into the deep end and then having the "oh shit! I HOPE they can swim! 🤞🏽" after thought 😂. I enjoy teaching and sharing that there are so many things within your control and that you can change. You CAN control items in your home. You CAN control your health. Your happiness. It's not hard. I can show you.

“Needle and thread, my first love, my life’s constant … from the fearlessness of youth, sitting at Granny’s old Singer, toes barely brushing the treadle … the magic of threading the machine, transfixed as a line of stitches miraculously appears, then to hand-stitching and dyeing and making with joy and ease … through years of stifling suburban banality and spirit crushing desk jobs, to the reawakening in middle age of these makers’ hands, engaged, sore or blistered, good strong working hands, nimble fingers always coming back to needle and thread. Now entering the age of the crone, remembering and renewing dreams, vanishing doubts, stitching and dyeing, following inspiration wherever it leads, returning to fearless making, needle and thread my constant that binds it all.”
Heartfelt thanks to @prophet_of_bloom for the inspiration to commit these thoughts to pencil and paper and post a new journal entry, “stitching through time” ... link in profile.
