say, write, read= it happens


noun, plural man·i·fes·toes. a public declaration of intentions, opinions, objectives, or motives, as one issued by a government, sovereign, or organization or just me.
Since I am a verbal processor, I have to say it to make it real. And then if I write it and read it, I can refer to it when I get lost.
So this is the new manifesto.
Instead of focusing and being depressed on the lack of girlfriends  having a bestest friend,  I will instead focus on the fact that I will have uninterrupted time, space, and materials to make all the quilts I always loved, or been inspired by, since beginning my love affair career with quilting.
I will not concern myself with 'doing something' with all this work, but will focus on enjoying the process, the product and using up the materials on hand, and if nothing else, knowing I have an entire attic space to store all this stuff for some future discovery.
The fact that there is no endgame will (hopefully) lift the fear, the competition, the having to invent something new-mindset, and just allow me the right to dink around, change what I don't like, repeat or copy what makes me happy, and not care about the old ways of the career induced stress and anxiety.
