Being a mother, becoming a doula, knitting, charity and the life that happens in-between.

The Year of Inner Peace

This post has nothing to do with crafting, quilting or creativity. It has only to do with inner peace, something I am desperately seeking at the moment. While this post-partum has been much easier than it was with my first son, I still each day continue to take medication to keep depression at bay. I've learned all the techniques I can to keep myself and my mind healthy, but there is one area that I still struggle with. Letting go.

I recently had what I thought to be an amazing friendship explode on me. If it was an earthquake it would measure off the scale and the aftershocks are their own quakes to deal with. While it is still very raw for me I need to learn to let go. I need to know that I have done everything I can to support someone, that I have never come from a place of anger or spite, and that whatever has caused this really is not my issue.

So here's to the year of inner peace! I'm starting now, wish me luck. Hard thing to do, espeically for me, since I seem to take everything so personally.
