Rethinking- timely “gifts”

Forever, I’ve come up with gift ideas that are hand made and expressions of what I feel, or want to express.

Since my couple of near death experiences, I’ve decided to rethink the way I give gifts and the gifts themselves.

I’m rethinking lots of things these days, and it’s not any wonder I am changing things around in my life at the moment.

What I wanted to do, is not plan ahead for gifts, like when birthdays come up or this or that. I wanted to make just one special gift, that expresses my love for a person and pour myself into that. One gift for all the holidays or what ever. And then try and not feel the social guilt over not making special days more special with a gift for it. 🙂

I’m just calling this one gift I make, “You are dearly loved by me.” Something to remember me by.

The rest of those celebrations, I can do cards for. lol

Life is for trying things out I think, and that’s exactly what I’m doing. Going with how I feel about things, and social rules be damned. I’ve never been afraid of going against “grain”. Might be part of the 60’s sticking to me, I dunno. Smile

The first prototype of my gift, is a hand fan. Now I have had my own style of drawing and art for many years, and I call it “line art”. I’m sure there are others who may do similar drawing or the same even, but for me, it’s my own flow of energy. You can really feel something from it when I’m done.

Takes me days to finish a drawing.  Sorry bout the picture, it’s from a cell phone, and I get shaky  lol I really enjoy this so much. And that’s got a special importance to me. Those things that actually invoke a sensation or feeling of happiness and joy, are the ones I’ll stay with and absorb. Smile They are good for my health.

I was talking to a dear friend yesterday and she was commenting on how many people never have any thing positive to talk about anymore. I thought, it’s like everyone is a local channel news station. You never hear good stuff from those channels. lol  Something to think about.

Our mental states affect our body health. Or emotional states, whatever. Least I find it’s true in my own life.
