Two Weeks and A Day

Waving hello and greeting everyone a happy post Easter Sunday! πŸ™‚ ❀

It’s been days since and I just wanted to share that I had one of the most relaxed Holy Week holiday with my husband and big family. We mostly stayed home with a few days spent bonding with cousins and Aunts. For the first time our Easter egg hunt was done on a Good Friday because that was the only day were most of us are available to be together. It was delightful to watch my nieces and nephews carry their baskets and hunt for those home made colored eggs. Their giggles and competitiveness reminded all of us of our childhood.

I also enjoyed some time alone to meditate, reflect, play and practice calligraphy. πŸ˜€

Today’s practice

My theme was about change to help me with my weight loss journey (so I can keep diabetes and any sickness related to increase cholesterol out of my life). So far I think I have been a good girl most days and have now started to take vegan cooking classes from my Aunt. Sharing my recent photo with cousins taken last Saturday.

Can you find me? πŸ˜€ Yup! You spotted me correctly πŸ™‚ At last my blue shirt fitted perfectly and I can now tie my hair up as well. Wahoo!

We love to create family get togethers so we can enjoy food, booze, and endless chatter.

And continuing on with my mini moley adventure. ❀

66 of 365 Sometimes we just have to tell ourselves to just explore and let the view amaze us. I have been walking/running the same route since I started my on and off love for walking/running seven years ago and the view still amazes me. Everyday there is something new to appreciate and be thankful for.

That’s it for today. πŸ™‚ Thank you for being with me today. Most times after the morning run I am already out of energy even to hold a brush and paint. But I try to at least start something, even just a page, and try to finish it within the week. My art is really taking a backseat to give way to my journey to be and stay healthy. I know something will give as I am always tired from exercise BUT I am positive that one day I will get the right magic, the right yin and yang of things, the right blend. One day at a time. One step at a time.Β I may not have clicked liked or commented in your posts but I have been reading them and gathering inspiration from. Keep them coming and keep the fire burning!

Minis and a Quote

minimoley2017_062

62 of 365 This is one of my husband’s favorite quotes. Unfortunately we both don’t know its author. I choose to live by choice, not be chance. To be motivated not manipulated. To be useful not used. To make changes not excuses. To excel not compete. I choose self esteem not self pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice not to the random opinion of others. I choose to do the things that you won’t so I can continue to do the things you can’t. It’s a great quote to live by.

March flew by so soon and now we are saying hello to April! ❀ This month’s lettering theme will be about change. As I struggle with changing my eating habits, daily activities and over all life attitude, these quotes will greatly help in the daily effort. Today’s quote is from Robin Sharma.Β 

 

Happy Friday everyone! Spread a smile! πŸ™‚ ❀
