I challenged myself to doodle/draw everyday in November and to produce at least 4 paintings a week in December. I may not achieve my own expectations in term of the finishing product when the challenge comes to an end (which I don’t really care because I am not an artist), but, it is more than just about what I could produce actually…. it is about getting my confidence back, about trusting myself and not being afraid of failure.
What set me to this challenge is that, someone asked me – have you ever thought of putting your artwork to any exhibition? My answer to her was – I am nobody and I have no confidence. Somehow, my own response made me feel challenged.

“So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny?” –(Quran:Ar-Rahman)
It is not about how much time you have, but, how much effort you put in to make it happen.
Why waste time worrying when you know nothing in life is certain… so, just do while you still can. Make it happen before it is too late. Even if it does not happen, at least you know you have tried. No regrets.
Life can change in an instant.
*Myself,… an accidental writer*
Sky, sea and clarity.
The eyes see
The soul feels its worth
The mind heals the body.

Ideas popped into my mind
Quickly I grabbed a pen
Wanted to scribble them down
But before any words were written
They just disappeared
Leaving me feeling mad
Frustrated I threw my pen
and went silent
Because, I lost it again!
*the feeling everytime I was struggling with words. And the reason why I did not update my blog for quite sometime.
