Rough Patch

I had one today. However I told myself that I can still hold my head up and walk with no fear of anything. Having brave through previous old fears, I must be stronger than ever for everything that's to come. Tears are not a form of weakness but the ability to face even more than I can bear. At the end of breaking down, its the beginning of picking oneself up and the strenght to start afresh.

It had been more than 3 years, since alcohol and cigarettes were part of my weekends. Gone are the days when I count down to friday evenings, where I hop from club to club and more clubs. I have my yarns and needles for company now. Something that's much more productive at the end of the day.

I shall pray to the Knitting Goddess for many more knitty days to come.

Ack. Hope the rough patch passes soon. Personally, I think its much more fun (and productive! Like you said) to be knitting than clubbing.. not necessarily less costly though. ;)

Hope things be better soon. I've never been a clubber, but I don't think anything beat knitting! Well...a couple of shots alongside won't hurt though.

thanks for the concern.

I guess i tend to turn to alcohol last time. now i depend on knitting. a different kind of addiction.
