“A great silent space holds all of nature in its embrace. It also holds you.”
Every day I reflect on this quote from Eckhart Tolle. I like to think that by getting in touch with this silent space I am able to unlock more inspiration and creativity in my life. Each day I make it a point to meditate, and then I follow my bliss by making time to crochet, sew, and write. My meditation and creative time is what remains constant in a world where everything is in flux. What is your bliss? Anything you are passionate about and love so much that when you do it, you lose all track of time.
Contentment is defined as a positive state of mind and an overall feeling of joy and appreciation. From where you are at this moment, contentment can inspire you to move in the direction of your life’s purpose. Jetta the cat loves to confuse contentment with inaction. This does not work well for those of us of the human persuasion. Until I accepted the fact that I have a rare form of muscular dystrophy and that I needed to use a wheelchair, and felt content, I was unable to move forward.
Now I am retired, content, and wonder how I ever found the time to work outside my home! I have time to research subjects that are important to me and decided to put it on this blog for future reference. No more searching for that web-site I was on last month – if I intend to go back to it, it is here.
I opened shops on Etsy. At JadeRoseBoutique I sell wheelchair and walker bags, pocket scarves, and patterns for wheelchair and walker accessories. My designs result from from my own experience. of living life with muscular dystrophy. At JadeRoseCrochet, I sell patterns and crocheted accessories, all of which I designed.
I found I had too much information to post on one blog, so I began a new one for my passion for crochet: http://crochetably.com/
