I've been working lately on trying to get my brain to quiet down - it seems I am forever making lists in my head and debating, doubting, wondering, worrying. It's exhausting. So as part of my exploration of faith this year I am trying to get my brain to let go a little more. I'm starting to meditate. I'm writing in my journal. I'm also trying to pick a couple projects to have pre-chosen for the week so when I get a few precious minutes to sit down and sew the debating about what and why and how has already been taken care of. This is allowing me to just show up and work, which feels great. Just keep working is one of my new mantras - which for me means don't listen to that voice in your head telling you that you're doing it wrong (or not very well) and it's really waste of time and the colors are a little off and the quilting is wonky (WHY is the quilting so hard?!) and on and on and on. I repeat just keep working to myself and try to remember to have a little faith that it will all turn out fine in the end. Because it usually does 99.9% of the time!
Thanks for stopping by, hope your week turns fine too ;-)
