Looking forward, Being present…….

So again….its been a short while since I have posted, Much and little has been happening in this little life of mine. My Doctor…..whom I will not Return to, LAUGHED at me when I said I was feeling stressed….I have felt very unbalanced lately….depressed…..call it what ever you will but when it tips the scales and becomes severe? I feel I should mention it….and what do I get? LAUGHED at??….there’s nothing to help with that…..suck it up? Perhaps…..but sometimes even a gentle ear might help, or maybe even ask “why” do you feel tense? maybe its the symptoms of my conditions? perhaps its PTSD…….In any case? I am hoping a new Doctor may help….

In other news…..I got tired of getting too little or too many hours at my current job, One week I get 11 hours, then only 15, then back to 40? Nope……can’t keep doing that…..so I put in at least 15 applications, and I got a new job! making 2 more dollars an hour, and getting 24 to no more than 30 hours a week ( Just what I was Hoping for) , AND the place is only open from 10 am to 8 30 pm, so no more late hours, and NO more toilet cleaning!! I’m not so naive to think it will be perfect, but it couldn’t have been any worse than the job I am leaving behind.

My Art is slowly making a comeback, I painted one canvas, and I have been dipping into my art Journals, Got a Commission, and I am working on a new Art Piece…..I am pleased that I have been able to get back to “me” I NEED to make art….its like Oxygen for me……it has to happen or I feel as if I’m drowning. I Also need to continue creating my book about Art Journaling, I really think I can get it published…..but not if I don’t create it!!

I hope Your little corner of the world is filled with Cozy warm/cool things, and Happy thoughts!

      Thanks Wendy! Its been a strange Process…..working again after 10 years of not working, I will say that it has surprised me in more ways than I thought it would. I do believe that work is a necessary part of our lives….Just finding the “right” job, Or one that gels with your personality is also necessary to make it worth working. I Think… 😉
