Crochet it Away

img_2053I went through a very emotional break up a few years back. I took a crochet class to keep my mind off of what I was going through. I have a tendency to distract myself often with things that interest me or makes me focus on anything other than what I am dealing with.

What I did not realize how much crochet helps my focus and keeps me in a good mental space. I began to crochet, once I accomplished one thing I was ready to move on to more difficult projects. I am still not at a master skill level or anything. However, I realize this is something that I like to do. I enjoy getting lost in each stitch and creating! I decided to make a few things to sell for the fall. I enjoy doing may as well profit off of it somehow.

I still get slightly discouraged or some would say have negative thoughts. I like to prepare myself for the worst case scenario. If I do that then there will be no surprises when or if a situation does not turn out how I would want. It’s something I have done since I was a child. Not having parents that picked up on these flaws allowed them to blossom. I automatically go to thinking the about the worst that could happen as preparation.

I do understand that this is not always a good idea. Maybe I should practice jumping to the best possible outcome….but then again I’m not certain this would even work for me. In the mean and between time I am just going to try my best.

Thus far I’ve made a few ear warmers, hats, cowls, and necklaces. I really think I want to experiment more with the necklaces. They were fun to make!

    I can relate to your tendency to “expect the worse”. I do it also. I get called ” a negative dude” a lot but I call it, “keeping it real”.

    Nice crochet projects also.

    Best way to deal with a hard time is by letting it harden you.
    You can harden yourself in any way, by learning a new skill or enhancing something that you already had.
    Just try to make the best use of worst of your times. 🙂
