I skipped a week but here I am again. I had a bit of a rut for a while and wasn't able to focus. But I broke through it and I feel much better now. How are you doing and what things have made you happy?

I have to say I am learning a lot by finally doing my hobbies. I am gaining confidence and getting really excited about things. I can't tell you how much the notion of waiting until you are older and have more time for hobbies has been beaten into me. In reality if we don't make time now are we going to make time later.

Dr. Pamela Gay that I hadn't really known about before. I might try watching it more. It had the absolute cutest intro. Seriously, just watch the first 40 or so seconds to see the intro.

So I took my first crack at learning to crochet yesterday. One piece of instruction took a little bit of time and patience to understand. But most of what I studied was fairly easy to absorb and replicate. It was fun, relaxing. My mind was quiet as I focused. I often have trouble with stressful thoughts that quickly spiral out of control. I can see this being something to do to meditate. I kind of hope it stays that way. It might just be because I have to focus so much as a beginner. I hope not. I really do hope this is an activity I can use in the future to quiet my mind.
Have you tried crocheting? If so do you have any advice for a beginner? Or are there any activities you do that help you relax?

While I am having a lot of trouble with my erratic sleep I feel like I am really getting stuff done this week. I updated my bullet journals for May and tried to be very realistic with what I can achieve. In the process I have reminded myself about some of the things that make me feel alive. Depression can really steal the joy from those so it is so important to try and stay on top of the depression symptoms. But anyway here are some of the things I am loving this week.
