Making something makes me feel so useful and proud. For me, I knit. The past few days I have knitted so much! I look down at my progress and it re -instills that I am capable of things. Not to mention smart enough to teach myself! I even made a nifty video to help others learn to knit a ribbing stitch (not sure how helpful it is, but it was fun making it!).

I will be making "How to Survive a Break up" posts quite regularly from now on. So please stay tuned as I am learning daily!
