The Road Ahead

Happy New Year, lovelies! I’m back from my vacation. Hope you had a good time over the holidays. I’m a bit rusty on the drawings at the moment but hopefully I’ll be able to get better in terms of the shading and colouring.

2018 has been a tremendous year in learning crucial lessons on relationships, self awareness, understanding boundaries and self care. One of the hardest lessons I’ve learned is understanding that you can outgrow relationships. One day, you can have a network of people in a similar field. Next day, you can switch tracks and people eventually falling off the earth. Relationships go by in seasons. It’s why I do my best in remembering the good moments, even when things went sour. Nothing is perfect.

Having a smaller circle helps me focus in who’s important in my life. I no longer have the high expectations that I used to in the past. I take things with a grain of salt. If people are meant to be my friends, great. If not, time to move on. My happiness depends on how well I treat myself.

Got any stories to share about the holidays? What were your biggest lessons during 2018? Would love to hear your thoughts 💭

Namaste,

Diana

Happy December

Happy December, fam. We are at the last month of the year. Can’t believe that 2018 has been filled with exciting and life changing moments for me.

Speaking of exciting – I found my stash of Prismacolor Markers while cleaning my office. I’ve bought them about two – three years ago and quite surprised that it hasn’t dried out! I felt pretty giddy and decided to find my stationary heavy stock paper and did a quick sketch of my chubby cow standing next to a holly plant.

These were the markers I’ve used to create my little artwork. I’m hoping to incorporate some more traditional art on my page. I had to keep reminding myself that there’s no copy and paste function when making the circles round 😅 oh, how far we’ve come with technology these days…

What are your plans to make December memorable? Would love to hear your thoughts 💭

Namaste,

The First Snowfall in NYC 2018

Snow has officially arrived today in NYC. It’s a beautiful sight. At least, for me.

I can think of wonderful memories related to the snowy weather. Having a hot cup of tea/cocoa with some pastries makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

I could care less in gaining weight with all of the food that I’m eating 😂 #plussizeforever #nodietforme

Let me know if you’re encountering snow at your area! Would love to hear your thoughts 💭

Namaste,
