Unraveling.


Hello Dear Readers, it's been a while....

It is an easy relaxing saturday afternoon and finally feeling at ease I can say that I have been "unraveled". Many times, hopefully the least of them, Life puts us under situations that pretty much feel like being unraveled and there is no stopping of it. The worse part is that it is out of your control.
What I have been through for the past 10 months is comparable to one project I started knitting last October that I named "Pumpkin". As I started knitting it, it soon became my favourite project. I could only dream of the many wonderful experiences and joy I would get while wearing it, when it would be finally finished. At first, I kept a steady pace and soon was able see it start becoming something beautiful (at least in my eyes). Then for reasons out of my control, I would have to put it away for some time -there were more important things to attend, it seems- and although I kept coming back to it, I knew I was losing that steady pace. Then the day came when I had to put it away because there was simply no time (or interest) to keep on knitting it, the many hopes and dreams of exciting experiences while wearing it finished vanished infront of my eyes. This way it was kept for months inside a box, together with my knitting needles.

The good news is that such sweater did not go through the unraveling, but I, the knitter did metaphorically speaking. After being once a "favourite project", very soon I became neglected and then unraveled by deceit and heartbreak.

Time to start taking up my knitting needles again and rediscover the exciting (for me) knitting project that my life is.

I will post again when my "Pumpkin" sweater is finished. Turns out this particular project will be after all a memorable one, because by finishing it I will reinvent it and with it, I will reinvent myself.

I am at Home again.

Thanks for reading.

Ciao Marie.
E' passato molto tempo e tante cose sono successe anche a me. Diciamo che ho dovuto affrontare dei cambiamenti radicali e che la mia vita non sara' mai piu' la stessa.
Mi sembra di capire che le tue aspettative non sono andate a buon fine. Cio' e' molto triste, ma non preoccuparti. Un proverbio italiano dice :- " si chiude una porta e si apre una finestra ". In altre parole quando qualcosa a cui teniamo si interrompe, c'e' sempre una strada alternativa. E spesso si scopre che si tratta di quella giusta.
La cosa piu' importate e' avere sempre una famiglia su cui contare.
Coraggio! :)

Ciao Rita,
Ti ringrazio dal cuore il tuo bellissimo commento, sei un'amica! Ma lo sai che abbiamo lo stesso proverbio in Messico? Anch'io ti auguro tutto il bello e anche se a volte purtroppo la vita non risulta come volevamo, abbiamo i nostri cari e abbiamo noi stessi. Coraggio anche a te e grazie ancora! Marie
