It's been really hectic these past few days......there were times when I just didn't feel like being creative. But since I was committed to my customers, I had to do it no matter how I felt. Times like this reminded me when I was studying art and design in ITM.....there were times when I didn't feel like being creative at all, but I had to force my brain to come up with something creative. LOL! Yup, it's not easy....I'm sure others who are in the same boat as I am can relate to what I'm saying here. There is this huge block in my brain that just refuse to move. It just stayed there till God knows when. I had to peep behind the block to look for my ideas. It's hidden behind it. If I'm lucky, I get to see a big piece of it......if not....just a tiny bit.

But today I'm a little relieved. Relieved because most of my commitments are I can start experimenting on new designs, new projects and also gotta make some cards that my Mom ordered from me to be given to her friends. Mom is one of my fans as well hahahaha.......or perhaps she's a fan because she knows she can get the cards for free....LOL! Well, that's probably one of the reasons for sure.....hehehehe

I've got a lot of things going on in my head right now.  A lot has happened over the week that bothered me. A lot thrilled me as well. So it's a mix of both. Good things...and bad things. But that's normal I suppose. It happens to everyone. Everyone I know has the same thing going on with them....more or's just how you handle it. I'm still learning. But I'm happy that I have great support from  my family and friends.....even online friends can be very very supportive beyond my expectations. Strangers'll never know what you'll get's little surprises that bumps into you.....that makes you smile....that cheers you up and clears all the mess in your head.....and the sadness in your heart.

I also believe that it's important to make good choices in life. If you choose to be happy......then you'll be happy....if you choose to be sad.....than you'll be sad. If you choose to be ignorant....then ignorant you shall be. If you choose to change for the better.....then you'll change. If not, then you'll stay the same old same old person you are now till one day should you decide to be otherwise. Well, I for one will always choose to be happy above all. I do sometimes feel sad about certain things that happened to me but usually it doesn't last that long. Coz I'll always remind myself that everything happens for a reason. I may not know why God made it that way for me, but I'm sure there is a reason. If I'm patient enough, one day I will find out what it is. It usually happens like that.....well at least for me. :)

Hi, Lin.

It's very good to see you so full of optimism.

I also believe that everything happens for a reason. We just have to be patient, as you say, and we will find out what that reason is.

I love my surprises every day too. The beautiful sunrise or sunset, the beautiful pink petals on the coneflower growing in my yard, how my dog sleeps on his back and puts his legs on the wall, the wind rustling the trees ever so gently, the frogs singing late at night, a glorious full moon, a very sweet and juicy peach, the calmness that I feel after an hour long yoga session, the warm sun on my face, a cool drink on a hot day, finding a bird's nest with baby birds, etc. I have to admit I can constantly surprised.

The world is beautiful - enchanting if we only take the time to look and enjoy.

It amazes me how much we have in common. You are a total stranger yet I feel as though I know you....

May you always be happy. Remember, we do not find happiness, we create it. We have the power to do that.

Hello Barb...

I agree with you! We have to create our own happiness....and indeed we do have the power to do that. I believe it! Nobody can make us happy better than we can!

God is great...there is so much in this world He created that is enchanting...we should be grateful for it and take the time to enjoy it. Waste not, the beauty around us....

I am grateful to have found a friend like you...even though we have never met but what we have shared here I believe have brought us closer together. I always look forward to your comforting words in the comment space of my blogs. I really appreciate it a lot.

May you stay happy always too wherever you are! :)
