I’ve been concentrating on writing about wellness lately, maybe because that is where my mind is at, for the moment at least.
I am not an expert on wellness, or psychology. I read up about a range of different ways to relax, to keep calm, and not to let the stressful times we live in impact too much on my life and health. I am getting to the point of being very knowledgeable about my own wellness, but other than that I am still trying out different things to see what works for me.
I am also not an expert on cooking and baking, although I love doing both. I watch a lot of cooking and baking programmes on TV, and I’ve tried some of the recipes – some came out brilliantly, some less so. I do not have the time, in my days or in my life, to perfect my techniques in the kitchen, but I haven’t had many complaints about my food and I’ve received quite a few compliments, so I think I’m doing OK.
I adore knitting and crocheting. But, you guessed it! I am not an expert in knitting or crocheting. That’s fine – I’ve made quite a lot of things that have made people happy over the years, so I’ll carry on doing just that! I have made coats and jerseys and beanies without patterns, but I’ve never ‘designed’ patterns or made videos on YouTube, and I can live with that.
I also love photography, but I am very far from being an expert at that. So I will keep taking pictures, probably until I die, and nothing much will ever come of it, but that’s fine, I enjoy seeing things ‘in pictures’, and I love saving moments for myself, and maybe for the people that love me, for after I’m gone.
I wonder if it’s better to be okay in a lot of things, but not an expert, or should I have focused my attention on one of my interests early on – maybe I could have earned more money out of that? But that’s a moot point, since I will never know what the alternative could have been!
I will keep dawdling on in my own way with the things that bring me joy – maybe, in the end, that is all that counts.
Until next time, stay safe and be happy. 🙂
