Zeal and zentangles

Here I am relaxing away post a heavy lunch, writing my last post of the challenge. I cannot believe it's over. I wrote twenty six articles this month and my blog has over 20500 views. So grateful. 

I share my complete life through my blogs. Where I go, what I feel, what I think, what I do, what I want, each and everything I have shared here. This is why I don't have a diary anymore since I put my thoughts onto this platform. I am so happy that so many of you read my articles and when you personally message me or reach out, it makes my day. So a big thanks to my readers. 

The challenges I took on this month have given me a new zeal towards achieving my goals. I have realized my dreams, aspirations and what I want in life. I have a new vigor to work hard now. I am working on exciting new projects and have some new ideas regarding my art that I am so excited to try out.
These challenges gave me the push I needed to break away from my slump and negativity.

I am so happy I stuck by. Some days it was very difficult to write, some days I even felt like giving up. There were time I would blank out for some of the letters but I powered through I guess.
 Even the Alphabet challenge I have pulled off. Here is the Z doodle inspired from Zentangles. I chose zentangles as that's what my art is all about.
Now I have to work on all the numerals (0-9). Will post all those together next time. That's all for now. Hope you all enjoyed the challenge and my posts. Thank you for sticking through and finding time to read about my life, thoughts and visions. 

Will definitely post soon!

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
