Some simple, practical and warmly comforting words from A Quiet Week in the House:
When you feel your worst, create. Grab a marker and some stickers. Rip open envelopes and decorate them. Stamp butterflies on an old map. Bake. Sew. Organize. Do something, anything. You will be released. Even an overwhelming, disappointing day can be a success.
When I feel my worst it can seem almost unthinkable to dance. But hauling myself to class has really been a lifesaver for me in many ways. Dance is creation. I’m doing some sewing today and that’s creation too. These small acts are miraculous.
