Give me some sunshine


I don’t know about you but living here in Hannover, north of Germany, I have a real appreciation for spring/summer. After a long cold dull winter, I can hardly wait for the sun to shine here, the flowers to bloom and finally getting to wear some summer-ish clothes.  It’s the only time to enjoy some beautiful outdoors & picnics with friends, go cycling around the beautiful Maschsee lake here and feel the warmth of sunshine on the face. But it’s almost June and we have just got a glimpse of sun till now and mostly it has been raining. I had packed all our winter clothes and autumn weather is back again :(

Oh….how I wish for some sunny days. Till the time I lived in India, I had always taken summer for granted. But now I realise how important Sun is in our lives. It actually brings sunshine into our lives too.

What is your favorite Season? Do you have any favorite flowers, tree or shrub?

I want to sum up with these beautiful pics that my hubby clicked a few weeks back….. Enjoy

 

 

Learning to be comfortable with the discomfort


It’s a meaningful thought because if we learn this skill, we can master pretty much anything else. Amazing things happen beyond the end of our comfort zone.

‘When it starts getting uncomfortable, those are the reps that count the most.’


One of the things that make me uncomfortable is the pressure of blogging. The thought of putting myself out there makes me so nervous. You are probably wondering why I even bothered about blogging if I feel so. Yes, I knew this last year also when I embraced my artistic journey and started blogging. But, my determination to push myself saw me through last year.
But, this year. I am feeling this pressure so much again. In between the daily household chores, spending time with my family, helping my daughter with her homework, picking her up from school, i barely get time to make some Art. And then the pressure of making a perfect post regularly is making me more and more reluctant to post.
But, I know, I can’t continue like this. If I allow myself to get defeated by this pressure, I will not be happy with myself. So I have to push myself for the love of Art or for being brave…get comfortable with getting uncomfortable.
This is how i would like to sum  up my post. Wish me luck :)

Wish you all bright, cheerful, sunny summer days.
