Colorful Distractions

I went to Balboa Park and was surprised at how much better I felt just walking around. The colors and creations took my mind off my intense worry and sadness. I wondered how I could add some of that color and creation into my daily life.

Valentine’s Day

My brilliant mother-in-law brought cookies to frost. First you dip them into frosting, then sprinkles. I have postpartum depression so lately things have not felt pleasant and I have not felt present in day to day activities. This was different because it was crafty (always my ticket out of a bad mood) and someone else set it up for me. All I had to do was show up. I smiled, I laughed, it was everything. I have to think about finding other ways to show up to create more often. ❤️ Rae
