You can CONTROL your life because you know yourself better than anyone. Situations, people, events everything can change around you since change is constant, how you can incorporate these changes in a way it makes your life beautiful is in your hands.
You have control over three things in your life 1) WHAT YOU THINK 2) WHAT YOU SAY 3) HOW YOU BEHAVE . To make a change in your life such that it works in your favour you need to understand when to push the ON and OFF buttons in your life.
Sometimes it’s necessary to stand outside and look at your life and in those situations you might have to turn yourself off from everything that would influence your thinking. And there are times when you really need to open your mind and turn on you thoughts to absorb as much inspiration and positivity towards you which would guide you in being successful towards your goal.
We all use computers (keyboard to be specific) just apply the same buttons in your life – CTRL-ALT-DEL.
Control yourself Look for Alternative solutions Delete the situation which gives you lack of peace of mind.

I am someone who loves learning new things and for that Google and YouTube have been of HUGE HELP to me. There is so much you can learn these days from the internet. All you need is the curiosity to LEARN.
Being in IT for six years now my life is synonymous with a not so creative kind of job sitting behind the computer. No complaints here, I kind of love my job but the creative side of me always keeps looking for something to learn specially related to ART and that’s how few months back my random google search led me to a word called ZENTANGLE and boy i tell you…I was in AWE 😀
Click ⇒ Zentangle to check out my initial post on what it is all about.
And me being in AWE still continues as I search for more and more variety and patterns to up skill myself. Lately i have started doing more of Flower Patterns. All thanks to the videos and tutorials by Krisa Bousquet. Please check her site kcdoodleart for more information. So here are my recent attempts at flower doodles.

Week 02 begins today and would be giving my weekly update on my challenge next sunday. Loving this pic challenge cause it helps me think plus helps me learn clicking pictures which I suck at badly (Instagram filter helps 😛 love the different options and themes they have)
Unless you see the bad you would never realize what good is, unless you know how to cross darkness you wouldn’t enjoy what it is to be in light and unless you know what it is to be feel being chained you would never enjoy what it is to be free.
Today i am one step closer to something that i have been going through since quite sometime and would tell you all one day the story behind it. For now to celebrate it and to make that journey more stronger for me this is what i drew last night.
THE DARKEST NIGHTS PRODUCE THE BRIGHTEST STARS !!!
I have a small should I be posting these drawing like a blog post under the drawing category or make a separate page for all my drawings. I am always confused with pages and posts in WordPress 😦 Please let me know your suggestions, would really appreciate it.
Sunday time pass – Zentangle Inspired Art Animal – Rhinoceros.
Zentangle is really a healing process, it lets you focus and be patient and the best part about Zentangle as an art form is it doesn’t let you use an eraser. So you need to keep drawing or rather patterning or doodling and in case you make a mistake you are supposed to play around it in such a way that it turns out to be a better design.
Happy week ahead potpourriers!!! 🙂 🙂
Pen used- Sakura Pigma Micron .01mm and Time taken – 3 hours(few small breaks)
It feels as if i have been away from my blog for long well had a reason I injured my right thumb 😦 ligament tear, ruptured tendons etc and yeah there was some really out of this world sort of word that the orthopaedic doctor said which i still don’t get. Well the doctor says i need to get a surgery done so that i get life long relief else i ll be having pain whenever i stress myself. This whole pain-hospital-crepe bandage-medicine etc lasted for almost ten days.
I am doing better now and the pain is all gone and i realized two things that i missed most during this time was blogging and drawing (the recent hobby am trying to become good at) 🙂 🙂 🙂 So today being a lovely Sunday and absolutely awesome weather here in Bangalore i decided to draw and then blog it. I have always loved Peacocks for their attitude, beauty, elegance, charm and arrogance..hehehe yeah don’t you think they have that pride in them like that inborn trait of “hell yeah am beautiful” sorts. And this is what i drew –
I wanna draw this on my room wall, but definitely don’t want to get in trouble with the owner since mine is a rented apartment. Maybe I’ll have to figure out some other way…hmm!!!
Hope you guys are having a good time!!! Please pray for Chennai, the severe disaster that the city is facing due to the heavy rains and flooding. So many people have lost their lives and lost everything in this havoc. The images are just way too emotional and devastating. And in such times the kind of strength, courage, unity Chennaites have shown beyond religion, caste, status is more than just words and a salute to humanity. Do follow these tags to know more about what Chennai is facing, the relief work etc. #ChennaiRains, #ChennaiMicro, #ChennaiFloods, #ChennaiRainsHelp
As mentioned in one of my previous blogs how i have started enjoying drawing all over again and had posted an image of Baloo and Rebecca from TALESPIN….remember!!?? Ahh yes i gave them some color .
TALESPIN Completed – So, here goes the TALESPIN along with Kit. I didn’t have a grey color crayon then so had to manage with some random color that came up in my mind. Also for some reason, i think my version of Baloo looks a little thin 😛
