Now that school has started, if I'm not in my car dropping off and picking up (three kids in three different schools is kinda exhausting) you can find me at home. In my spare time I have been working a lot on my macrame. I'm really trying to improve and create interesting and unique pieces. Over the last couple of years I have made many plant hangers and now I'm excited to be working on wall hangings. It's nice that when you feel the need to be challenged there is always room to grow. I've been trying to get this one knot down for over a year and I FINALLY got it! Of course now I can't understand why it took so long because it's really easy but it has opened up new doors for me in the world of macrame.
I guess I've been feeling the need to grow in many areas of life. I'm always trying to improve as a mother, wife, friend and daughter. I'll be doing that until I'm dead but creatively I've had this desire more than ever. I started to attempt finger picking on the ukulele and again it's a whole new challenge. It keeps life interesting when things begin to get monotonous.
I have other, not so fun, challenges I'm facing but I know those are necessary and usually the most transforming even though they can be incredibly hard. In the end it helps to know that the difficult times will indeed pass and that ultimately it is for the good. Having my moments of creativity throughout the day helps me so much.
Any new challenges in your life?
