First of all, I just want to thank you all for your encouragement, words of wisdom and understanding in regards to my last post. I was wary of sharing so much so "publicly". However, I felt that there would be some kind of "accountability" in what I was doing, sharing so much in such a public way.
It's time to get healing. It's time to start making positive changes to rid myself of all those hang-ups, hurts and frustrations that have kept me down for far too long now. I'm going to be reading the books suggested to me as well as continue to pray for healing and making good, positive choices for my life. I've already read "Captivating" and I'm going to read it again but actually do a study on it rather than just read it. I need it to sink in and work in a positive way rather than just finish it and think what a great book it is.
I know my art and craft is a part of the healing process for me too. I need to be creative. I think everyone does in whatever form they choose. It's healing. Perhaps more so than any of us realise. There's something quite deep and spiritual when you get lost in being creative. I feel it whether I'm doing some crocheting, digital scrapbooking, painting, drawing or making something on my sewing machine.
And I want to do that more. More art. More crafts. Every day to create. Maybe just for half hour or maybe all day. However much time I can afford on any given day I know being able to creatively express myself will do wonders for my spirit, healing and well being. It's a new day and I'm excited about the challenges ahead. Even when it gets tough as it often does, I will be resting in the knowledge that I'm making progress.
