Did you ever get started doing something that you enjoy so much that you just get lost in it and forget just about everything else?
My "therapy" is crafting; in particular making jewelry. I can sit and bead for hours, and think that only a few minutes have passed. That's what I was doing last night! I was sitting here happily beading away, making one piece after another, when suddenly I realized that it was THREE AM!! :-0 It didn't occur to me that it was that late because I was tired; actually I was feeling quite good and enjoying myself immensely, and getting a lot accomplished! :D But when I happened to glance at the clock I realized that no matter how much I was enjoying myself, that I wouldn't be quite as joyful when I had to be bright eyed and bushy tailed about 4 hours later!! It was time for bed, and I had to MAKE myself accept that and put my beading away; so sadly, I put all my unfinished projects aside and took myself to bed. It's funny though, because even though I stopped physically doing what I love to do so much, it all continued in my dreams! :D
The good part though is that just a few minutes ago, I sold one of the projects that I had made just a few short hours before! YAY!
