finding my peace

1 Sep

finding my peace in life and with knitting.  I am really down in the dumps lately and life is not exactly where I expected it to be.  HA, is anyone’s (don’t say yes if yours is…).  I am really wishing to open my knitting shop downtown where I live by the beginning of the new year.  Now for the cash….hm.


I am now realizing that doing what I love (i.e. knitting) and working for a living (actually, I probably couldn’t even live on that alone) are two really totally different things.  I don’t know why I used to think life was a box and I had to do what my parents did.  I am/was in an unhealthy relationship, living paycheck to paycheck, barely getting by and just struggling to be happy.


Knitting makes me happy and content and by damn-i like content and happy.  I have never been more inspired than I am now to  get down and dirty and open that knitting shop.  I can do what I love and see my son before and after school…which is what I hate so much about working (my I leave the house m-f by 5:45am and my son will be starting school on Wednesday and leaving for the bus at 8:15 am and getting home around 11:45 am and I won’t be there to see how his day was ::sad face::) .


I think I’ll just go knit for a bit to clear my head, at least for a little while.

    Best of luck to you. I know there are times when I’m sad, upset, depressed and the only thing that makes me happy is knitting. I hope everything works out with the yarn shop:)

    You sound just like me. I leave the house at 6.30 and get back at 7.30. I hardly see my boys. I’ve been working since February on getting my business up and running. I can’t say how much closer I am to it, I’ve just rebuilt my website, but every day I know that I’m getting closer to resigning as I just can’t stand much more of the grind and not being at home. I’ve never been a stay at home mum but now I really want to be. I want to stop being the breadwinner but don’t know how.
    I can’t say how I’m going to solve my issues, and this in no way helps with yours. But there are others out here who know with some certainty how you feel and we’re with you!

      I really appreciate your comment. It does comfort me to know there are other women out there struggling with the same emotions I have. 😕
