Finally Finding Myself... I wrote the other week, about how I'm feeling more comfortable in my own skin since turning 40. Also that other peoples opinions don't matter as much any more. I still take things to heart, but it doesn't play on my mind for a long time. I am learning to shake it off.
I think it has really helped in another area of my life too...
I've always been able to knit, crochet, sew etc.. I was taught at quite a young age by my mum. She made me some truly beautiful little dresses and outfits, when I was young. Even as I got older, she used to knit my school jumper and sew my school skirt. As I've also mentioned in other posts, we weren't very well off, but thanks to my mums skills, I never felt like I went without.
These activities tend to have an 'old fashioned' label. As if choosing to do this, makes you a frumpy, middle aged woman. Then you start blogging and tweeting.......and you find some like minded souls, who are far from frumpy, or middle aged! Like me, they just love to create, and have fun doing it!
