A new beginning!

Finally after months of pursuing myself to enter into main arena for selling some crockery that I love to explore, I showcased the products on a leading website here in India. Here is the link.

It was a great relief to see the implementation of my overdue plans of establishing myself as a player in this field. I am still a beginner and a lot has to be done. What I learnt in the process of arranging inventories, logistics and other things, is that when we are determined to do something, support comes from all sides. We ourselves create walls around us that prevent us from achieving our life goals.

i have delayed my growth in the fear of failure. But sooner the better. I think the lesson had to be learnt by me in someway and it’s not too late in life. Going for something you love is the best you can do for urself, without physically hurting people around. Of course they will be hurt emotionally because of their own insecurities but that isn’t in your control.

i have not even captured 1% of the mountain I want to! but the hope is alive now. With consistent efforts and encouragement from family and friends, I believe I can achieve a great part of my dream.

dreams do come true. May God bless us all!

Little Paint Artist!

Finger painting, something's that satisfies his hunger for painting his hands and legs too in the process! Nothing better than a colourful kid in ur house!

Finger painting, something that satisfies his hunger for painting his hands and legs too in the process! Nothing better than a colourful kid in ur house!

This is my 100th post, and what’s better than marking it with my son’s painting experiments. Something he loves so much, maybe more than his cars and other sports!

we watch a lot of Mister Maker episodes on YouTube and TV. I don’t pay attention, but Arin remembers much of what Mr.Maker tells his obedient listeners. Everything that my son picks up, reminds him of some or the other article that can be created by using the same. So I am thankful to his online tutor for enhancing creative thinking, while I am really not good at it.

So in the last one week Arin was introduced to tube water colors at his aunt’s place. He loved the finger painting so much that when we came back, hangover was still there. We also got him tube colors and he was at it the moment we got them home. Created some simple arts but he takes great pride in whatever his tiny fingers and big brushes achieve with the tubes.

below are a few things he has painted, of course with my help there to achieve a certain shape:

A house made of cut outs, pasted on his notebook! Tree was done together. The sun in the night was his idea so sunlight shoos away the dark!

He asked me to make paper bags, so we could utilise the tube colors well. And here he is putting his art to work! The bigger one was done by me, suggested by Arin. Now he keeps his colors and book in these bags.

This was inspired by Mr.Maker's episode where he used play doh kind of stuff to create partitions so we get the white space in between the coloured patches. I live this one despite its obvious mishaps. Arin was very happy after this excercise and we did another one.

Another one inspired by Mr.Maker and our own experiments! What fun!

Rewards of parenting!

Parenting comes with numerous challenges and millions of rewards by your subject. As they grow reward types also changes, though kisses and hugs remain all time hit.

today  during story time, I was in for a special reward in terms of reverse story time. I started the topic of his choice and he cutely completed all the story by himself. It was such a delight to hear the cute sentences with expressions in his sweet voice. I hope I never forget this lovely experience which is no less than a reward of the little hardwork that we do with him.

the story was an episode of Peppa pig series. It’s a cute depiction of stories with hidden lessons in a very funny and light manner. All that my little one does is laugh while watching its episodes. In the bargain he also learns a couple of new words and their…

Vacation special!

Surabhi:

Some fun we had in the last few days!

Continuing with my previous post where my son and I made a paper bag for the first time, here are couple of more things we did to kill time as we have plenty of it these days!

first is a picture of balloon to be filled up with torn out pieces of glaze paper, my son took green color. Second is the nest picture that we filled up with dried sticks from our garden. It was absolute fun working on these two activities as they continued for a few more pictures like that of a parrot and a cow. Next I will do some cotton spread on a sheet for clouds and snow depiction. Hope the lil one likes it :).

Here are the said pics:

What is the struggle about?

Originally posted on Days of My Life:

Being a social animal has its advantages and disadvantages. Advantages are many and cannot be listed here, so let me go to one disadvantage that we face day in and day out.

Thinking of people and their views about ourselves. Isn’t this we do atleast for the 95% of the time that we are not sleeping. Now thinking about what others think about us is fine until the point that it doesn’t take away the simple happiness and peace from the day. When we start thinking deeper and deeper into people’s motives behind what they say and do, that’s when we interfere with our own peace.

in the book, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, there is a chapter similar to ‘Will it matter an year from now”. Whenever I start dwelling into things too much, this lesson reminds me to get back to senses – most of the times…

Why worry?

We worry a lot! Don’t we?

we worry as if our life is never going to end or as if this is the end of our life! Either ways, we only waste our precious time when our focus should be on the more productive things. After an exhaustive episode of worries that may last for days at end, I feel defeated by myself.

i think we cheat ourselves when we take life for granted when something unpleasant becomes so important that it takes up 90% of our thought process. If we find a solution, it’s absolutely worth the effort, but if we know there is no solution to certain issues and certain people problems, we should put it to rest and move on to better and more beautiful things.

It’s like holding up a heavy glass of water in hand even while we are asleep, but our focus is on the glass which should not spill! So we lose our sleep, focus, happiness and peace for that glass of water which is happy in its place and has nothing to do with us. We give it so much importance that it becomes centre of living, thus a simple unimportant thing takes over and we get carried away in the process.

let us start worrying a little less, start living a little more. Every moment is precious and will not come back to us. Let us make it positive. It can be difficult but not impossible!

thanks! Take care!
