Freddy is right😉  

Miss me?  

My craft table does! I took a little break from crafting and editing to get my room in order. Seriously, a total rehab took more than I thought! 

I thought I’d be doing my stairs and fireplace by now ☺️  

I had therapy time✨  

When I craft or DIY, most times I don’t listen to music or watch anything. I let myself get in a zone. I’m mindful with my crafts and my thoughts. And it’s a PT session.  

When I was paralyzed; I remember sitting in bed when Physical therapy would roll in the cart of games/exercises and I would cringe. I’d almost immediately get depressed. They had my doing things with my fingers that just didn’t work.  

My hand would be in a bucket of rice, feeling for buttons and change. I’d have a wooden block puzzle much like a baby. I couldn’t do them. I’d get frustrated and sweaty and mad and then sad I couldn’t do it. I definitely didn’t believe them that one day I could do it.  

Why do we do that ourselves? Why do we doubt what we are capable of? I’ll tell you...it could be trauma, the way we were raised, society, etc.  

Confidence is such a beautiful thing when you have it, and a real dark and ugly place when you don’t. No matter what is thrown at us, we have the ability to overcome it. We can change our mindset, we can practice and we can do better.  

It’s not a race, it’s not a competition. Love yourself and enjoy the flow✨
