Winter solstice is my birthday.
For many years I thought it was the most depressing day of the year to have birthday. It’s the darkest day of the hole year – we only have 7 hours of daylight in Denmark.
In the later years I have learned to appreciate the magic of the solstice – it’s the day the light returns.
I’m trying in my own small ways to contribute to break the taboo around mental health issues by trying to remember to speak up.
I have had my own issues with depression and for years the last weeks of december has been painfull in various degrees. This year has been no different, except that I have accepted it.
It has been like I had porridge in my brain and my muscles. I have been cursing and swearing, but I have put my trust in the knowledge that it always change on my birthday.
This year something else has changed, I have started a journey towards a more for filling worklife.
A worklife where I find space to create, design and share.
I have started making goals and are consciously working towards them.
My main goal this year was to make at least one great knitting patten and release it online. And so I did!
I also had a very small goal for my income on the knitting business and I’m almost there!
I have plans for the next year and I’ll spend time in the holidays to making it more concrete.
As a great thanks to all of you following me, I’ll introduce a birthday promotion on Ravely (USE THE CODE: Happy Birthday) and on the shop – so Dec. 21. I’ll celebrate the return of the light by giving 50% discount on all of my products*.
and by the way….. I would love a greeting from you ❤︎
*It sounds a little more spectacular than saying “on my one pattern”. LOL
