Words cannot express properly the significance of this day in terms of today’s world. I may not succeed with every attempt of speaking less and actively listening more but I can promise that I’ll continue trying.
Whether you are a mother to humans or animals (like me), I wish you a very happy Mother’s Day!
Although we’re sheltering in place for health/safety reasons and showing love from a physical distance, technology has allowed us to be connected in a virtual way. Hopefully the virtual communications and/or gift deliveries can simulate the love we hope to express to each other.
Personally, this has been the best Mother’s Day. As a highly sensitive, INFJ introvert, these unfortunate circumstances has given me an opportunity to reset, recharge and realize different things about myself. As a people pleaser, practicing self care is difficult for me: I don’t like to say “no”. I appreciate the invite, but I feel guilty declining and exhausted after accepting.
I know, this is a luxurious dilemma to have during this pandemic. Nonetheless, these thoughts do exist in me regardless of external events. Although challenging, I’m sure that God will present many opportunities to take care of myself in order to take care of others.
In the meantime, hope that you enjoy this Mother’s Day in whatever way that’s comfortable for you!
I started this blog with the hopes of having a central location of all my finished pages. Coloring is a stress reliever for me in times of anxiety and in times of sitting in front of the TV watching all my beloved programmings. As life’s priorities rose higher on the totem pole of time, making time for coloring sunk lower and lower. Even setting reminders on my Google calendar did not work for me. The option to click “Later” was so convenient.
Pausing coloring has a side effect of idling content for this blog. Although idling, this blog is alive. I liken it to a car, idling in neutral at a stop light or engine warming up in the driveway on a cold morning before a short commute to work. In the meantime, I’ll post my thoughts at least once a month.
To all who are out there in these times, keep and develop maintain healthy habits while staying strong and remembering the words of President Franklin D. Roosevelt:
“So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”

While learning how to blog and build a website, I realize that I have been procrastinating: waiting until everything is perfect, until I’m an expert, until this, until that…
After being inspired by Mel Robbins’ Youtube video https://youtu.be/WhnTm6iOjK8, I’ve decided to publish this blog and import all the colorings from my Tumblr posts.
Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope it’ll inspire you to express your creativity a little bit everyday!
