What's been happening...

... to my craft blog?
It's been getting more and more personal since the beginning of this year. Which doesn't mean I don't write about my crafts. I just write about other things as well and in bigger proportions than last year. *^v^*
My Morning Surf shawl is growing everyday, it's so easy to knit this pattern that I cannot put it away, it's just always in my hands when I land on the sofa. I believe in this pace I'll finish it even before Imbolc, not to mention it was supposed to be an Ostara shawl! ^^ Photos tomorrow.

Yesterday I bought a new issue of the Polish women magazine "Mirror" and it started with a citation from the book by Don Miguel Ruiz "Four Agreements. A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (A Toltec Wisdom Book)", which I find very basic and wise, and I'm going to try to stick to these rules:

Be implicable with your word.
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word against yourself or to gossip about the others. Use the power of your word in in the direction of truth and love.

Do not take anything personally.
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their of reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.

Do not make assumptions.
Find the courage to ask questions and express, what you really want. Communicate with other people as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement you can completely transform your life.

Always do your best.
Your "best" is going to change from moment to moment. It will be different when you are healthy ,as opposed to sick. Under any circumstances simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse and regret.

I've been also thinking about my 'piece of art' I feel I'd like to create, and I think I finally know what it's going to be. It came to me somehow when I didn't even try to call it to my mind. It's going to be a tree decorating my flat, my entrance doors, to be precise. More about that later, when I decide upon the design and the technique. ^^

And just for fun, my wardrobe remixes from the last two days. *^v^*

Happy weekend, everyone!

  1. The four agreements seem very sensible. I'm definitely going to try and remember them.
