For the past few weeks, I’ve been wanting to try and learn to spin.
It took a Holodeck chat (my first-ever!) in the Starship Craftybiz to make me realize that yes, I can go ahead. (The holodeck is where we get together once a week or so to go over ideas, stumbling blocks, and to get pretty silly. I didn’t join in for a long time because it was a scary, new social situation…but it turned out to be very helpful, and unscary. I’ve biggified myself, and I feel a lot better for it; working at home, self-employed, can be a very isolating experience. The Holodeck also helped me get destuckified; I was in stuckifcation for an extremely long time – almost 2 years! – before realizing that I needed to just do it. Do something about it. Destuckifcation doesn’t happen overnight, but the process feels so good.
Talking to Monsters
I had…still have…a lot of monsters about this. Not the spinning, but the allowing myself to do it.
So, today I took the plunge and got:
-a book by Abby Franquemort
-an apron (to keep the fuzzy bits off my clothes)
I’m leaning towards one of these:
Comments are welcome!
I think my monster has quietened down a little – I don;t want to ignore him, but it’s good that he’s not making me feel like dirt anymore.
I did just one thing yesterday, and I’m proud of myself.
(Thanks to Havi Brooks for all her monster-talking, destuckification and biggifcation awesomeness for getting me through the dark.)
