Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.~~Eckhart Tolle
Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere I don’t belong. In every change, live the possibility for something wonderful to manifest. It is up to me to stay open to that something wonderful.
Come to think of it, growth and change do not have to be painful–go with it! There I am with a whole new world to play in. The trick is to embrace it. It’ll happen. Believe. I am going to repeat this all day. Care to join?
Today’s gifts for my crafty friends…Liquen fingerless mittens pattern by Mer Almagro is FREE ’til end of August. Just hit Buy Now, click use coupon, and leave blank. The price will automatically adjusted to FREE. I dunno if you like someone that much to knit him/her a pair. Linen stitch in a sticky Shetland wool is not very fun, but, the mitts are indestructible as far as I can tell. They’re also super warm and lightweight at the same time–fabulous for biking.
