The New Year has arrived! And my life is finally starting to settle. Some of you may, or may not, vaguely remember that The last several years I was working a lot of hours at a job I didn't care for while either going to school or trying to run a business. 2015 brought the tides of change; and change things did! I applied for and was accepted into my dream job. I get to be a massage therapist working for someone else, doing therapeutic massage like I wanted to do. I don't have to worry about paperwork, or client recruitment or advertising. I come in when I'm scheduled and have a a fair amount of control over my schedule as well. This business has 10 therapists and a learning culture built into its structure. While I work less hours than I did at my other job I am more exhausted. I am okay with this! It is a rewarding feeling at the end of the day that I have accomplished something and made a difference in people's lives.
Now that I am sleeping well and working a job that I absolutely love, however, my anxieties have skyrocketed. I'm making a forceful return into art and craft to try and deal with my depression/anxiety mix. I may not always be drawing either! For Christmas my husband, who knows just how to spoil me rotten, gave me a spinning wheel! Over the last year I have started getting involved in more fiber crafties, crochet, knit and hand spinning. It is likely I will be posting some of those things as well.
One of my goals is to reorganize and redesign my gallery, some art will be brought down. I have been contemplating changing my username but I don't think that will happen anytime soon.
Welcome to 2016, 356 opportunities to do something amazing!
