This year, I've also been struggling with a few other changes. My anxiety levels are at an all time high, and it's beginning to take it's toll on my health.
I don't want to whine. The truth is, the bulk of this is self imposed. I force myself to adhere to deadlines I've created, volunteer to help with things when I don't really even have time to take care of myself and keep going at a high rate of speed that has become unmanageable.
I had hoped that my small vacation would give me the time to do some thinking and come back refreshed, but what I've discovered is..I need more time.
All that being said, ConstantlyAlice is my passion. I will continue to create and share on my Facebook and Twitter pages, because the communities I've found there have been so wonderful. I will also continue to add merchandise to my shop, because I know of no better therapy than creating. I will still post here periodically, but it will be sporadic for a while until I get my feet back under me. I hope to return to it refreshed and with brand new ideas to share with you in the fall.
In the hopes of building a "support group" of sorts, I will also now be blogging at The Loveable Eccentric. This is separate from my vintage and crafty passions and will be more of a therapeutic tool. I will be exploring ways to "find my zen" with things like meditation, mindfulness and healthier lifestyle choices. It will be an online journal of sorts, tracking my way back to health. I hope you will join me!
I would like to thank all of you who have been so supportive of ConstantlyAlice so far. I love hearing from you, sharing ideas and learning new things. I hope you will hang in there while I sort things out, but if not, I genuinely appreciate you for following along with me this far on my adventures <3
Hugs and Smooches,
