Taking it slow
I think I may be learning a little bit of balance in my life. If you have read my profile you will see that I mention being bi-polar. I find this both a blessing and a curse as a creative, artistic type of person. On one hand there are times when I seem to have a source of unlimited ideas and a drive to work work work. On the other there are times when all of my energy is suddenly gone and nothing at all can get done as I struggle to pull myself out of depressions. It's often been an all or nothing type of thing. I've been worried to fully explore doll making, because there have been too many times where I have worked frantically for several days rarely even sleeping. Eventually my body gives out if nothing else and I find myself crashed, or sometimes even sick.
It's been a struggle to learn that it does not have to be that way. I find it really refreshing that I can put in a few hours at a time and then walk away to do something else. This way I can try to give attention to some other things in my life once in a while and I don't feel so frantic and frazzled. Here's to hoping I can keep it up and continue to learn healthy habits for my life!
