Today I am grateful for...

Today (well, for the last few weeks, actually) I've been so grateful for my partner understanding and supporting me through everything I'm going through now. Really I'm grateful for him even existing and choosing to stay with me, but this past little while has been...trying. *snuggles him*

 

Today I am grateful for everything the tarot has helped me realise in life and for finally ripping the veil from the things I could not see. My heart's racing and fluttering enough to have sent me into an immediate panic attack back before I had learned the things I have, but right now I'm coping. If one hits it hits, if one doesn't it doesn't, and I can't help but thank how much stronger I am for realising that. For understanding that.

Thanks for the reminder. Many years went by when I couldn’t drive even a mile. I’m grateful that agoraphobia is minimal now. Years ago, my doc (we were dating) said no one’s ever died from a panic attack. He was trying to reassure me. I just looked at him & asked, “how can anyone know that for sure?” His answer...”touche”. I can now do my own shopping, most of the time if it’s close, but I would melt in an airport. I even went for an eye exam today! Yay you, Faerybraids!

 

Late response, but I'm so grateful I saw it! I'm so glad you were able to get our for your eye exam! There was a point where I could manage things well enough that I even travelled and worked abroad on my own (I totally understand the melting feeling there!), but I'm having to relearn all those skills again. :( But! One day at a time. Your response has actually prompted me to do some more research and put together a new plan to help with going out, so thank you!

This week, I'm very grateful for the people in my life who've helped me get out of tight spots time and time again. One day I'm going to repay these favors with a smile. :)

That it is raining today on this first day of Spring, ensuring that everything will be green and full of life again!

 

Aside from that, I'm grateful that I'll be starting a new job soon and won't have to be a bartender anymore *woohoo!*

Today I am grateful for the progress I've made this week! I haven't been very well for a few weeks and I feel like I'm finally beginning to turn the corner.

 

I'm also grateful for everyone's posts here - it's so lovely to read  <3

I’m sorry to hear that, we must be sharing footsteps. Be well!

I am grateful to have finished a small piece of lace, and having some lace bobbins to collect from the post office today.

I’ve always wanted to learn how to make lace. I can crochet, but is it called tatting?

Hi Albadawn, I saw you online earlier today and happy to see you're feeling better.  I miss you when you're not around.  I did a yes/no reading the other day and used your technique.  It really works out well if I only want to use one card!

Crochet is made with a crochet hook, tatting with a tatting shuttle and a different technique - but both use a single thread. I make bobbin lace, with many threads at the same time - is that what you meant ? :)

Dunno. I guess. I’m gonna research that. Thanks!

I think tatting IS lace-making. Ima give it a whirl.

I just wondered if it would be easier to learn how to make lace if you can crochet.

Each is a completely different thing, honestly. The articles have pictures and brief explanations which will help make sense of them.

In terms of learning, lace is actually a very small scale kind of weaving, because it uses many, weighted threads at once, which then intertwine with one another. I don't think it's similar enough to any other discipline to say "it's easier to learn if you can already do X"

It IS easier to learn if you can find a group to help you IRL  :)
