Leaving the House…

I ventured out yesterday. Was nice weather, not too cool, not too hot. The flower in the vase in my picture is from outside the house. I am enjoying that May has been relatively mild. I only went to Target. I wanted to see how well I could move around now. Walking is painful. The weight causes back and knee pain even after just walking a little while. I want to try to go out again today, though. Just so I can get over my social anxiety and fear of being out in public. Plus, I get more exercise than what I am getting here by walking the stairs and doing my resistance workouts.

I have a birthday coming up. My parents were Jehovah’s Witnesses, so we never celebrated birthdays. Or any holidays for that matter. So, I never actually do anything special, although I consider myself agnostic. This year will probably be no different. As a gift to myself, however, I am going to finally put my into starting my scarf line featuring my own artwork. I have been talking about this, literally, for years but just never felt confident enough. I am cautiously excited about it.

  1. Please celebrate your birthday big time! You are special and unique and God celebrates you! He “rejoices over you with singing.” I hope you won’t stay agnostic. My “adopted” son was raised Jehovah’s Witness and he has some bitterness about it, too. But he has come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior, and he is completely in love with Jesus . I hope the same will happen for you, dear. I wish you God’s best!

  2. Thank you. It is very difficult for me to put myself in that head space, but we will see what the future brings.
