It took me a while to get my mojo back in creating art and returning to this space, my very own space. Once we were back, there was so much of cleaning and organising to do and it took me some time to settle back to our normal routine.
Anyways, I am so glad to be back...
Holidays mean super busy schedules for us- summer classes, art, reading, a bit of learning, movies, long walks, experiments in cooking, outdoors, parks, bikes, swimming, friends,... and so many more things
I am so Thankful to be able to keep some time for my art as well.
This month I celebrated my birthday. Along with family and cupcakes, I also made a Summer Sunshine List for myself.
These are the things I included in my list:
* Have a Mindful and Prayerful approach to Life
*Water... Keeping myself dehydrated in this weather
*To take care of my skin and hair... Reminding myself to age gracefully-:)
*Read... at least one book a week.(Currently I am reading Atul Gawande's, "BeingMortal" a powerful read on aging, suffering and death... Ironically, I picked this book on my birthday month-:) but I highly recommend this book, as it is a stark reality of the things that 'matter in the end' of our lives)
* Eat healthy Trying to lessen carbs and include more salads, fruits and smoothies in my diet
*Go out...Being happy, to smile more and to be mindful of the gifts that Mother Nature has provided
*Being Thankful... (To list down at least 3 things that i am thankful for each day)
*Remember to take more pictures ( This year I failed drastically to document our life, I want to get back to the habit of taking pictures of our daily life and nature)
*Cleaning and Organizing. .. (Everyday to take at least 15 minutes in cleaning or de- cluttering my home space)
* Art...and of course to make time to do and practice art, to learn new things and to update my blog
Sorry for the long post. It has been a while right? Many, many Thanks to my friend, Dawn who constantly motivates me to start creating art and updating my blog. The same goes to my friend, B...who has been pushing me to return to blogging. Love you...
