The Roaring Quiet

I have been very quiet here since the middle of October.  I have been very busy, but I have also been feeling very quiet.  I have had a lot on my plate and I have been feeling a bit blue.  This week seems worse.

I cannot seem to shake that feeling of anxiety. As if someone  - something - is, literally, squeezing my lungs.

I want this blog to transform into something great. Something  dedicated to the creative and fun side of me. Not the side that feels sad and overwhelmed and like taking my children and running way.

I do not always feel like that but I feel like that now and I need to find a way to turn things around.

I am not someone who can fake it.  I cannot force happy words out of the keys when all I really feel is sad. Frustrated. Angry. Anxious.

A new year is about to begin.  I am hoping for the best.

  1. I think this season sometimes makes us all feel a bit different. Some get happier, some get sadder. I wish you some peace and joy and time to keep crafting.

    1. Crafting my bum off tonight! Thank you for the kind words. :) Merry Christmas.

  2. Whatever the thing is that is on your mind, try to let it fade out and fill it with the things that bring you joy and peace on the inside. I remember a time when things looked without hope of improving, and lots of anxiety and fears tried to take over rational thinking. For me, I needed some alone time with God and just needed a good old fashioned cry. As I let the tears fall, and I had poured out my concerns in prayer, I felt more serene afterwards, and the tension was gone, leaving me with more peace and a clear head to make choices and decisions. Sending you warm wishes for a Merry Christmas.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am a fighter and will get through - you are right a good cry would do wonders right now! Merry Christmas, and thank you. :)
