Amazing Threads - 31 Things to Remove to make you happier; We know that knitting and crochet makes us HAPPY TOO!
Saw this Headline Removing 31 things from you life will make you happier and more successful" and it HIT ME that I needed to share this with YOU who read my blast every week. I stress a lot over stuff I should not, especially with all we have had going at the shop these past 6 months. So take a read and if it hits home...think about what you can do to be happier while you are knitting of course!
""Life is too short" is so cliché, but also so true. Not to sound morbid, but our days are limited and we never know when our time will be up. We tend to think we're invincible, especially when we're young and don't often live to the fullest because we don't think of the bigger picture. We let ourselves get caught up in such trivial things that seem silly when we look back, or we don't take care of ourselves until our bodies give us a clear and scary sign to. Mindfulness is one way to practice living in the present, and all it really takes is to step back every once in a while to reflect on your choices. You only live once, after all, so why not make this a life without any regrets? See 35 things you'll regret doing down the line and consider changing a few things for yourself." by Nicole Yi
