A bit more than 2 months ago, I started a new job in a completely different industry than I have worked in before. New work schedule, very different tasks, totally new direction in life, really.
It is sometimes easy to forget that work relationships can be toxic. When I was telling co-workers I was leaving, I was surprised that so many of them opened up to me and reinforced what I had been feeling about so much going on. Some of them even had clearer interpretations of things than I did. My co-workers were observing what was going on and feeling frustrated but had no power to do anything.
Hind-sight is really something special. I realized that while I worked at my last job I stopped sewing. I stopped making, well, things in general. I stopped posting on here. I stopped posting on Instagram. What a strange feeling to sort of wear down emotionally and physically over time.
I am sewing again. And knitting. I have ideas coming but it has been hard to get back into the game. Things are happening again.
