Forgiveness frees our heart from the burden of resentment.
I find it difficult to forgive someone close to my heart. I asked myself why and is led to the answer that because of the immense love that I have for the person I cannot bring myself to believe that they can hurt you too.
The challenge to forgiveness is to let go of the hurt and to see a new light out of the darkness. I can only forgive when my heart says it’s time but it doesn’t mean that I can forget what has happened.
It is out of love that you forgive someone. It is out of learning to be strong and wanting to change to something better that you move on.
Time indeed heals everything but it will always be up to us to act upon it.

I created this digital painting with the word LIVE to remind myself that I should live. To live at the moment. To live fully. To live in learning. To live in love. To live in kindness and patience. To live without any apprehension and fear. To live in peace. To live with a forgiving heart. To live with understanding. To live praising God. To live for my dreams. To live with appreciation. To live in silence. To live in connection with myself. To live for others.
Life is hard but I know nothing else but to LIVE. I hope we all live a life that is NOT focused so much on making a living, possessing and enjoying earthly luxuries that we forget how blessed we are.
Sharing inspiration and love with my fellow Paint Party Friday artists. I have already missed 2 PPFs because I simply have no time these days for art due to my day job. I hope to make room for some paintings. I miss making art very much! Right now I am thinking of ways on how to make room for my creative pursuits despite the stress of work (more on travel to the workplace actually..ugh). Do you have any suggestions? Let me hear it.
How do you make the most out of life? Have a great weekend everyone!
Whenever I am surrounded by nature, all I can do is to breathe in…breathe out. It’s like this is the only place where I can get a bountiful of fresh clean air. I inhale by expanding my diaphragm, stomach and rib cage. I don’t move my shoulders upward. Then I exhale with my mouth (fully) and sometimes my nose, feeling my rib cage contracts. Feels so refreshing. You should try it!
Also, I am enlightened to try and challenge myself on doing something starting next year. That thing will be revealed on January or as early as December. I am quite excited to share this with you and hope to keep at it.
Have a blessed day everyone.

My boyfriend’s birthday will be on Aug 7. I created a card for him by painting a flower in watercolor. I always thought how cool it would be if a girl gives a guy flowers and since I don’t have enough time to buy some for him, I decided to just paint them. The lovely caption is also created in paint. I wrote my lovely letter at the back.
I hope he won’t get to read this entry till I give it to him later! I’ll have more surprises for him. Please join me in wishing him a happy birthday! I hope he has more to come!
