Monday Musings :: Reset

morning pages

I’m reading The four agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book had been for months on my bedside table, but I was a little hesitant to start it. I do believe that the book finds you, not another way around! I knew I’d start it at the right time. Well, I did, and now I’m almost at the end. Not to be a spoiler, but the four agreements are:

  • Be impeccable with your word
  • Don’t take anything personally
  • Don’t make assumptions
  • Always do your best

The author goes deeper into each of these agreements and at the same time in a concise way, it’s like we are having a cuppa and he is an old friend.

“Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.”

“Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art.”

I have concluded I need to reset! I need to end a few things that aren’t working for me anymore, and to start others that are in limbo waiting for an opportunity to show up.

“You can have many great ideas in your head, but what makes the difference is the action. Without action upon an idea, there will be no manifestation, no results, and no reward”

Have you read this book? If so, I’d like to hear about it. Have a great week!

100 day project – part 1

Hello, how are you doing? A new week is starting and we are still in STAY HOME mood!

I’m trying to be creative and keep up with few projects. One of them is the 100 day project that I started last week. You can see the introductory post here.

I’m using a mix of collage and painting for creating my art cards. Below are few of them I made this past week.

Have a great and safe week ahead!

100 day project

Today is starting the #100 day project! It’s a famous Instagram challenge that has been going on for few years. It consists of doing some art related project for 100 days. Something simple that you can do in 10 min to sparkle your creativity. I’ve completed this challenge a few times, and I’ll join this year again.

My project theme is 100 days of messy art cards. Here is my first one:

Hope you are going to follow me along. I’m not sure yet if I’ll post one everyday, maybe not, but I should do a weekly recap for the cards.

In case you want to join, check me out on IG #teandpaper or check the hashtag #100dayproject to know the challenge details.
