These last few days I have been dealing with a pain most of us can relate to: sciatica. Perhaps it was from an overzealous workout schedule before my lower back got strong enough to endure some of the more powerful vinyasas in very difficult yoga classes, combined with the jogging, etc....
or perhaps it is mental: according to "You can Heal Your Life" by Louise Hay (indulge me, I love this text) Sciatica is caused by 'fear of the future, fear of money'.... Money isn't an issue for me currently, but the future has felt a little more like a murky unknown....
Going back to the past, I cannot CANNOT thank you ladies enough for contributing your voices to my aging question blog post - and Dave, too!! I feel so much more at peace. For every comment here I received a convo on Etsy and some of the wisdom MUST be shared. I'll be posting some of the thoughts here with the permission of their writers.
But again, thank you for being here with me.
So I repeat my mantras and begin my walking (walking actually resets your sacrum, which is really good for sciatica) and I will have to take it a bit easier sitting at the bench to tool or to smith... sometimes our bodies slow us down for a reason.
On a bright note, I am four sales away from 500 in the Leather Shop, and that makes me beam like a small Sunny One. I think I may have to throw myself a little party when the blessed number is made real - I am also making a bee and flower heirloom bag for the shop to be listed sometime this weekend - that makes me really really happy!
And really busy - I better make myself useful around here!!!
I'll be posting some silver goodies today in the Metal shop after introducing them to you here!
