I always get caught up in this mind set of "I can't like or start that because I'm already grown, and if I wanted to do that, I should have started that when I was a kid or teen." I don't know where this mind set came from, or why I think this way. And I just realized that this mind set existed in my brain this past week. It's rather silly. But looking back, I've always thought this way since I was kid in junior high school. For example, I didn't want to try out for the soccer team in seventh grade because if I wanted to play soccer I would've joined club when I was in elementary school like all the other kids. See, its rather silly way to think, and its followed me throughout my whole life until now. Since my discovery of my silly thought pattern, I realize I can be whoever I want and do what I want. I can pick up something I've never tried at any age. It doesn't matter what I did or didn't do in the past. I need to start living in the present and looking toward the future instead of repeating my past over and over again.
On that note: I am going to start crafting! I want to learn how to sew. I want to learn how to knit. I want to make things with my hands. I want to try scrap booking. I'm going to make interesting things for our home. I'm going to have fun. I'm not going to give up when it gets hard. I'm not going to say I'm too busy. I'm not going to be afraid of failure.
Here our a few of the projects I'm going to tackle this year:
And many more to come. I'm so excited! Wish me luck!
