I’m one of those people that, while maybe things aren’t always perfect, I can honestly say I’m happy with my life overall. I guess I would consider myself one of the lucky ones to have had such a great upbringing and the ability to make the right decisions – my family taught me to always stay positive. But even those who always have a smile on their face and who can laugh at every joke can sometimes have an “off” day. Personally, my “off” days come in the fall and winter when the weather turns. My mood changes as the season becomes dull. With that said, I need to find something to comfort my soul and lift up my spirits. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to do that – I just grab my crochet hook and have at it! Nothing gets my spirits up like starting in on a new crochet project, so I always make sure to have a stash of easy crochet patterns on hand for when things get tough. One of my favorite things to work up is a crochet shawl, as they’re not hard to make but they’re so comfy to wear.
While it seems selfish to put yourself before others, it’s something you have to do every once in a while to stay sane. Making sure you’re healthy and happy before trying to make others happy is important. If you need a pick-me-up, hopefully you can do so with the simple skill of knitting or crochet.
