I’ve decided to turn the negative, of not being able to do much at all currently without ending up in hospital, into a positive by seeing it as time I can go back to drawing my mandalas and other random doodlings.
I’m proud of myself for using this mindset — and I’m very excited about how relaxing it makes me feel when I do it.
I will still have to pace myself with my drawing, just like everything else in my life, so each mandala will take a long time to complete. But I’m becoming more comfortable with that.
I’d even go so far as to say that the process of drawing my mandalas has helped me in finding acceptance of my current situation. Something I never thought I’d find.
When I say ‘acceptance’, I mean acceptance of the years of struggle I’ve fought through what felt like a hopeless battle AND the ongoing experiences, that I wouldn’t believe could even happen to a person unless I hadn’t experienced them myself. (So yes,I do understand why people don’t believe other people who have invisible illnesses).
Anyway, I didn’t set out to write such a long post, cause you know, I’m not actually supposed to be doing anything for this long. But I wanted to let you know that there is more to me diving back into pencils, pens and patterns that just pencils, pens, and patterns.
Did I mention that drawing mandalas and patterns is another passion of mine? Well, it is. 😊
Hope y’all have some beautiful moments each day … or week … or month … or … no, I’m just gonna leave it there.
Anyway, happy passioning!
