When I posted the other day I was filled with optimism for a fresh start.
I still am but as usual life is throwing in a delay. More on that in a momentito.
Have you watched Hoarders? My goodness that is such a sad show, it breaks my heart. Really it does, to see people hurting so much, surrounded by stuff. Now the horrible part of me generally watches it and feels like the housework can wait.
It is not that bad.
I feel good about my home and generally can rejoice with them at the end when so much has been accomplished.
Not last time I watched, oh no. I don't watch often, so when I noticed a recurring theme it terrified me.
A lot of times these people identify themselves as "artists" or "collectors" because they find great stuff at great prices (sometimes free).
Wait a minute....
I can totally be like that. While trying to live simply, it sometimes becomes difficult when faced with bargains, sparkle and my mind creating projects while it wanders into a place where time is no object.
Now I am not there... but it made me want to tackle my craft room even more. Sell supplies I won't use on Etsy. Sell the vintage crafting stuff I have been picking up to sell, when I have time.
I started making time. Nothing gets done without making time.
Then I got more sick, I have been fighting with a virus for a couple months but now it is escalating. There are rashes, migraines, joint and muscle pain that go with conflicting answers from the doctors I have seen.
Tomorrow I go back in, for now I am on painkillers and more antibiotics.
So my health is my wrench.
But I am here anyway, and will be.
It is hard because when I feel like this all I want to do is play with yarn, but my wrists won't let me.
My body won't let me do much of anything, so this post is again just words.
I think I am going to start posting pictures of random until I have recent things to show.
Find my voice again, well maybe I will just be sharing my eyes for now.
What inspires you to clean up? What inspires you to sit on your bottom and feel okay with the clutter?
