Being Thankful

"It is never too late to be what you might have been."
                                                  George Eliot

Today is my Birthday and I am thankful to get one more year to celebrate the greatest gift I have ever received - My Life. I am not wishing for anything special this year, just praying for peaceful, normal and quiet days with my family and of course tons of art to keep myself super busy-:) 

In my experience if I keep myself busy with stuff that I love then I remain  happy.Isn't it like that for everyone???

 Creating art has changed me for the better. When I started giving time to myself, to do the things that I love, I've found more inner calm and peace.

In January I read Gretchen Rubin's book, " The Happiness Project" and it certainly was an eye opener. This book helped me so much to gain a better perspective about myself and my relationship with others.

And of course this wonderful blogland, filled with colors and artistic creations have inspired me so much that it has helped me to create again from last year, [I think, I never got to even think of art for 4 years in my life] gave me the courage to post my creations here and above all to realize a sense of 'self worth'.

Thank you so much to all my friends here who take the time to go through my posts, to encourage and inspire me and to let me know how much you appreciate what you see here through your lovely comments and emails. I deeply value them.



  1. Susan, my most sweet and sincere wishes of happy birthday. You are a cancer, deep and full of feelings. I wish you all the best, today and everyday.

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSAN!! Hope it was a good day for you, filled with laughs and snuggles and maybe some cake!! I'm so happy that you share your beautiful art and talents with us, how lucky for us to see them. I keep saying it but it's so true, making time for you right now even with little ones is so important and awesome, if only I hadn't waited so long to do this for myself. Keep up the good work and finding balance in your daily life to fit both YOU TIME and family time in.

    Sending you a big BIRTHDAY HUG and wishes for another fabulous year for you.

    p.s. thank you for always supporting me and my projects also, it always makes my day.
