As the start of 2017, I gave myself a ‘theme’ for the year and the word was Intentional. I was adamant to stay intentional in all that I do and to give it my best regardless of the outcome. To a large extent, it helped me stay guided and focused. I think I needed the reminder the most when I got distracted or when I get so tired I just wants to lie down rather than be present for the hubs and the little one.
To be honest, I struggled with Chinese a lot when I was growing up. I grew up speaking mainly English and Cantonese. And the funny thing was that I watched a whole lot of Chinese dramas. But I guess I just wasn’t that big on reading Chinese hence the difficulty in both Primary and Secondary school. Having said that, I think I’m decent when it came to spoken Mandarin.
I love having plants or fresh flowers in the house because they dresses up the house and are pretty to look at. In fact, the Mister likes gardening so much we have a little corner in our balcony where he looks after the few potted plants that we have.
Happy New Year Friends!
It took me 10 days to get my writing mojo back from all the mayhem that comes along with the start of a brand new year. Specifically, the little one started school so boy did we have a lot of adjustments to do! Besides that, starting a new year also meant time for me to chart out how I think I want my year to be and be intentional about it. I know, life/things never exactly goes the way I envisioned it to be at times but I like doing this kind of planning. Somehow it makes me feel purposeful and having something to look forward or work hard towards.
There are days where I feel like my soul has left the body and all I’m doing is on auto-pilot. I get tired and unmotivated in general. And when I hit such rut, I know I am uninspired. Sometimes I feel like my creative mojo has left me and leaving me beaten and sad. Well, it does happens and happens to all of us from time to time, so it’s all about knowing when and how we should pick ourselves up and uplift our mood.
There is 1 thing I’ve learnt from Sophie of Ada Spragg and that is, quality sewing takes time. She has shown me in so many ways that a good sew cannot be rushed. And that is such a huge reminder to myself.
Sophie is also one who has impeccable style and wicked sewing skills, definitely one who has a wardrobe I’ll love to ransack someday (heh!). I’m always stalking her blog and getting so much inspiration out of it and I’m sure you would too, so I’m excited for her to be on this week’s mini-series where she shares more and gives us a tip or 2.
