We Live for Love

Hello all!

I had an interesting thought today, nothing unique or different. Nothing that hasn’t been spoken, or written, or sung. Of course, it’s about love. As of late, I let go of a love in my life. It hasn’t been easy, and it probably won’t be okay for a while, but I know in my heart I did the right thing. It hasn’t been good between us for a long time, I just had been the one to face it head-on. I took the step that neither of us wanted to take because we had gotten comfortable. But it wasn’t right anymore.  Continue reading “We Live for Love”

2. Knitting My Troubles Away

POST TWO

Sorry I missed last weeks post for knitting! I am sure you all are patiently waiting for such a post… yes that was sarcasm. I’m like a hundred percent sure most of you just scroll right past this post update and move on with your lives. Oh well! I’m still posting about it!

As I predicted I got bored with the main project. I have fixed the issue though! I have brought my knitting with me to work to help with the stress of work. Which is being confined in a two-by-four room with no windows, sunlight, or hope to see the outdoors.

Even with that though I did get bored once more, so I am routing projects! I bought some more yarn, and am knitting scarves along with the said blanket. It has helped to alternate between the two. I am also watching some more videos to find out how to knit a sweater… that one is going to take a while to learn, but I am so up for the challenge.

My yarn collection is slowly turning into actual things; it’s all very exciting! Though my apartment is starting to look like an old lady’s place with all the yarn everywhere. I ordered this super cute basket to hold all my yarn, it’s great! My first official project is finished! I make a scarf for my boss; she loved it. The next project that I am starting is a scarf for my boyfriend’s mom for mother’s day. Wish me luck!

Until next time…

Soulmate

Soulmate’s.. real or not real?

I don’t think I believe in soul mates to the sense that there is one person out there to complete me. What does that mean anyway? That I am not enough? That I’m not complete without a significant other by my side? It’s a lot of pressure to put on a person if you ask me. A guy is supposed to fit every specification that I have set for them? One guy is supposed to do all of that? Seems impossible, and it’s set every relationship up for failure if you ask me.

It’s A Gift

“Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.”

I have no doubt you guys are sick of me posting quotes from Eat, Pray, Love but I can’t help it. I love this quote so much. It lets me know that… that I have a chance to be happy even though right now my life feels like it is in ruins. I like to think that even though I feel broken or bent, I have a chance to fix things. Maybe things won’t be the same as before, but it will be a better tomorrow for sure.
