I'm having a rough time right now. I am 26 weeks into my second pregnancy, and all I can think is "When will this be over?" The hormones, the discomfort, the random stabbing pains all add up to a very grumpy me on most days. So I made this journal page to remind myself that one day soon this will all be a memory. One day soon I will be holding this baby in my arms instead of feeling him kick me in the %$^#&. And as I worked on creating this journal page, I felt the stresses and anxiety pouring out of my body and onto the page. Which is why I make art. Some people exercise, some do puzzles, some knit. When I need to process something that is weighing me down, I sing or I make art. And through some magical alchemy, I find those negative feelings transformed.
What do you do to deal with stress?
