There is nothing you can do but move forward. That is what I have realised since going on an amazing up and down journey since finding out about the arthritis. Now I am in the search for how to make life a little easier on myself. Sure, I could sit and feel sorry for myself 24/7 (and I am doing that a little, still) and life would be bleak, but I have to choose to want to fly and enjoy life in ways that I can. I am on a learning curve that life has dealt out of the blue - I am learning something every day. Like the fact I felt I could move tonnes of rocks in the garden without my back hurting. Nope - today it is much worse. So I can strike moving rocks off my 'can do' list and pop it on the 'Justin can do it' list. There is always an alternative, I am realising. And the alternative to feeling a little blue about the situation is to enjoy life the way it is.
I am sure once the shock of it all settles I'll come back to posting about vintage fabric goodness. I am still working as much as ever and the days are largely as they always have been. So I am sure I will return to normal programming shortly!
PS. Did you see all of the florals and botanicals I have popped on the site over the weekend? It's an 80s floral fest!
