Wow, I no sooner listed some new items in my Etsy shop than several were snapped up. What a nice feeling to know that someone likes my work enough to plop down some cash for them.
I have been undergoing some serious lack of confidence this past week. Logically, I can see that this stems from various things in my personal life. I am burnt out and discouraged. There are bright points and I think those things are the little things that ultimately pull me through.
Dealing with depression is a constant job. Sometimes I forget this and then suddenly I find I have slid down that slippery slope and I am well on my way toward dealing with much more than the daily maintanance of the disease. I thought that I would make it through this winter without many side effects from SAD, but I was wrong. Lately I have had the blues. I wake up and even if it is sunny out I feel like crying. My patience is at an all time low and I just feel alone. I feel like I want to scrap everything, my art, Portals, being a stay at home Mom and just go back to some mundane job where I don't have to think so hard and worry so much.
I am not really sure what my point is here. I guess just a warning that I may not be posting as much for a bit and also to thank those of you who have stayed in touch, supported me and been true friends. I think it is these things that have gotten me through the REALLY tough days and kept me walking that fine line.
