I am able to elimite a huge chunk of debt from our system. I will not share the exact amount, so we all won't faint, but that is one epic battle I waged against debt. I put up a very very good fight. There are some amount left to settle, but that amount is already negligible ( at least for me ).
As for the 6 projects which, I declared I will forever erase from my work-in-progress bin, I am able to finish some of those, and as for the rest, well, maybe in this life time.
The most important of those are these two:
Now, as for the state of this blog, I obviously failed on finishing those blog drafts. I guess, somewhere along trying to move out of the comfort zone, I finally accepted that this blog has become "the" actual comfort zone, it is something that I go back to whenever I cannot make other things in my life work , and for some reason, I have tricked myself into believing that before I can pursue other things in life, I have to finish all those things related to crochet and blogging first... that's a crazy idea..
Crochet makes me happy. But I have a life, a family to be there for, children to raise and nurture with love, a husband to be present with in our marriage, and a career to be successful in. I have all the time in the world to do the things that I love and I am sure there will be free time to crochet.
There is so much more in this world to discover.. so much more to do, and I don't have to wait until I finished my never-ending crochet project lists before I do that... I dont' have to wait until I have used up each and every skein of yarn in my stash.. or wait until I have sold every single kilo of yarn.
I just have to make things happen, and I can crochet in my free time.
Sadly, I see myself blogging lesser and lesser. I hope you find here some useful stuff and I hope that I am able to inspire people to crochet. I might decommision this blog after a while.. erase everything.. or maybe I'll just leave it here until Google stops offering blogpost for free. Maybe next year I can post some things about my yarns...
I know that this does not look like a very successful year, because the goal I set for this year is too vague to even measure.
But I dare say, that I did just that.
I just don't have any proof to show, because I don't know what will prove that I now have enough courage to move on with life, and discover what else is out there, instead of just being stuck with a thousand kilos of yarn.
So, I will " call it a year " for this blog.. and will just go back next year.. I wish for everyone a happy Yuletide season!
