I woke up this morning wired and obsessed with working and making money on Ebay. This is usually the start of frantic obsessive activity where every waking hour is taken up trying too hard to be better. So I stopped it before it took hold and went for a walk in the woods, even this didn't quite do the job, so I read my book. This afternoon we took the dogs out again and are spending the evening watching films and eating rubbish!
I find it a difficult balance to live from my soul which wants peace, quiet, dog walks in the woods and embroidery versus the western frantic, go getter life that we are taught we have to have to be happy. I have been trying too hard to get the van and I have forgotten to enjoy my life, so tonight we are watching Into the Wild again and just having FUN!
I live in Newcastle (UK) and I have been a professional embroiderer for over 10 years.
