The sewing ritual helped me come to terms with the fact that events in my life are not always within my control, and that sometimes I am subject to the uncontrollable forces of the world. After understanding and accepting my own lack of control – and that it’s okay – I realized my ability to overcome my own fears and physical pain by focusing my mind and its thoughts.


One Response to “Stitch That”

  1. You can do this or get into a motorcycle accident and spend eight weeks as a patient in a trauma center; that, if anything will give you an appreciation of the fact that events in your life are not always within your control. You may or may not be able to come to terms with it, but you will definitely appreciate the fact.
