This is a list of things I'm currently doing, the original idea came from RuKristin Papercrafts journaling prompts...
A few animated movies, which are always fun to view. I am also very into The Walking Dead series right now, and anticipate each new episode coming each week! Those are two very different genres for sure!
The second in the Ultraviolet series by R.J. Anderson called Quicksilver.
Fleetwood Mac- 25 years compilation albums of all their greatest hits over the years, its called "The Chain".
I have to admit, I haven't been making anything lately... I finished my Christmas cards and have written them out, enveloped and addressed them, all ready to send at the end of the month... But I have had no inspiration or inclination to make anything, or be creative.
I've been struggling lately. Depression has been crashing over me consistently for a few weeks now, and although I've been fighting hard against its currents, I'm not fairing well. The joy I seemed to have had for crafting has dwindled, and I find myself uninterested, agitated and overwhelmed by it; and many other things. I have always been able to work my way through these emotions, and be naively positive. But a lot has happened for me in the last few months, and I have changed as a person. A lot of my naivety and positivity has been crushed. I am very much feeling like I am only a resemblance of my former self... and that those parts are gone for good... What that means for me, who I am, what I want, and where I go next - I really don't know...
To just keep swimming... I won't be giving up... I just have to figure out how to get through this, and how to find joy again. It's just going to take time, I guess.
My Pets! They keep me smiling and going each day. Their unconditional, non-judgemental love and funny antics really help light my day.
I hope this hasn't been too depressing for you, but I felt the need to get some things off my chest, and be honest... Maybe writing could help me work through these things, and perhaps get some advice, if you have any? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for reading and commenting.
