Self care

I have been in a terrible funk for weeks from personal and work challenges and pressures.  I have not had the energy to do anything creative or enjoy the domestic pleasures of puttering and most distressing, find the time or energy for my paint brushes.  My camera is in the corner collecting dust.  I had all but disappeared from the internet.  No blogging, twittering, or Facebook.  No journaling either.  I have felt defeated and my self confidence took a big hit.  I've not been taking care of myself physically or emotionally.  Not good.   So, I'm cutting back on junk food, making better food choices and portions, I'm walking with my sister in the mornings and joined my local YMCA and start some great exercise classes next week.  I've begun journaling again.  Just spent some satisfying time this morning cleaning up my craftroom and going to practice self care by getting a paint brush in my hand as soon as I'm done with this post.  Later this weekend, I'm going shopping for some new workout gear and maybe even a new skirt or two for work.   I have not wanted summer to end, but today, I am ready for Fall.  I think it might to time to dig out my knitting needles, too.  While I paint this afternoon, I'll think about some lovely soup and stew recipes.  Hearty and healthy.   My paint brushes are calling me...
