Coming up for air….

3 Sep

Jeezus…it’s been a while since I’ve posted here, and quite frankly put, it’s been no walk in the park recently for me.

As the title says, I think it is time to come up for air from the sea of crap I’ve been drowning in these few months and get back to doing what I am good at (suffering and wallowing might be something I’ve been accustomed to lately, but I’m not that good with it)

Blogging, wargaming, painting and modelling have seemed like nothing compared to the soap opera of life, so my focus shifted to more serious matters, stress even having a real physical effect on my health puts less emphasis on the whole scene too.

But, I do realise that with all the focus on the shit side of life, all work and no play makes jack a dull boy. We need these things in our our life to give us a distraction from the darker and stormy side of our dreary existences.

So, with that, I am starting to feel that it is time to kick myself up the ass and get inspired again, not an easy task (well, you lot might think it is, but I can assure you, how I’ve been feeling, it really isn’t) I’ll be getting back into all my blogging (I’ll try and keep it upbeat) and all the projects I’m doing (or had been doing) I’m not going to push it too hard for health reasons, but hopefully all will be well on that front (fingers crossed)

Again, thanks for your words of encouragement and good wishes, that have indeed kept me going this trying time, and made me realise that the time for being down and beaten is over.

The grinning skull has even more significance than ever, still grinning in the face of adversity.

    Hope things work out! I always find hobby work (especially painting) is a wonderful sort of stress release from the hustle and bustle of life. Hopefully you can get back to doing what you love, and gain back some of that release.

      Thanks for your comment! Yeah I’m finding that i could do with some painting to get my mind off stuff as its a bit difficult concentrating on the more involved tasks I need to do (like sculpting and model making etc) I know that eventually things will even out, I just hope that the stress hasn’t taken its toll in some long term way (fingers crossed that the results so far point that way)
      I knew that this year was going to be trouble when I read my chinese astrology for the year of the horse, and it hasn’t failed to do exactly that so far (hopefully there will be no more surprises, I’m due some good karma with whats been going on!)
      Anyway, thanks for your kind wishes, and too everyone else that has kept me saner in these few months, I really do appreciate it!! 🙂
