The past is gone and the future no one knows. So all we have is this very moment...grab it, enjoy it, live it. Before you know it , it shall pass.
Life moves on pretty fast! We are caught up with the daily chores of life — cleaning up, laundry, cooking etc until that one day we realize where did all the time go. And in the rush of things we forgot to Live, we kept postponing those things that were close to our heart just because we were so busy.
The only way to Life fully is to….slow down and immerse yourself into every task that you do (not thinking about the past, not worrying about what future holds).
Here are a few pointers that can help minimize the past and the future thoughts and bring you to ‘Now’
~ Do one thing at a time— When walking, walk. When eating, eat.
~ Act Slowly— Don’t rush. Just for a few minutes deliberately slow down while doing regular chores like feel how the soap feels on your skin, how the water is warm/cold on your skin while you do the dishes.
Hey Guys.. I had been thinking of sketching for a while now... but I had no idea where and how to start. While I was reading books to my little one, it just clicked! I could just use some of the pictures in her book to start with and in no time I was able to come up with something of my own. Here are some of them which I did in the last two weeks.
I am posting here after a super long break. I had been through a roller coaster ride in the past year! Somethings absolutely went the way I wanted them to but there were some that made me challenge my abilities and then I hit a low that brought lots of frustration and head aches and heart aches. With my share of bitter sweet experiences all I can say is , if you are going through something which seems impossible today. Just hang in there, this too shall pass and you would come out of it stronger and wiser. To keep myself going during the tough times I did a little bit of calligraphy to give myself a break. Woke up every day and did this the first thing in the morning. First few days were not so fun but just within a few days I fell in love with it. Somedays you just need to show up in Life even though you don't feel like.Take baby steps and those baby steps make you the strong person who knows how to keep yourself together when everything seems to be falling …
Its been a long long time since I made cards, there have been so many things keeping me busy that I hardly get time to hop on here though I have numerous creative projects to share which I have been doing with my daughter. Its surprising how patiently she joins me to work on whatever I am doing.
This winter we went through a rough patch - everyone at home taking turns to fall sick. So things were pretty much gloomy and it took me a long time to be up and going. Being a mom and being sick honestly doesn't work! To cheer myself up I bought myself stones and paints and painted these beauties.
Now that spring is here and we are planting our own lil garden and I plan to put all these painted stones there. I love it how my little one runs each morning to water her plants. Ah! little joys of life!
I also went for a paint nite event with my friends - it was so much fun to be doing things which makes me connect with myself more! Sometimes I need a break from being a mom too :P xoxo …
