“Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are. “
– Dale Carnegie
I saw this photo in one of my friends’ Facebook profile and I totally agree with what this guy said.
Let me share you guys something.
Our relationship started with a “trial” stage. Both of us just came out of toxic relationships and I said “let’s try to be together for six months and if we’re still together by that time, we’ll decided if we’ll be serious”. We just celebrated our 6th anniversary last April 4. We chose to be together.
When I was pregnant with our first child,
I was looking at my Instagram feed when I saw this photo by one of my high school friends. An aspiring photographer who takes above average photos (not that I have high standards) and he, just like me, loves using nature as his subject.
I went on looking at his photos when I realized that I used to love taking photos and looking at nature photography. Now, I just love looking at them.
I know most parents experience this at one point especially stay-at-home moms like me. That moment when you suddenly just miss doing those things that you’re terribly passionate about, like photography for instance. You can feel the passion, the excitement and the anticipation thinking when you can do the things you used to do. Somehow imagining what you would do and where you’d go to when you get the chance. For a minute, you’re flying there planning with a little too much bit of excitement.
Still working on it. I’ll be updating this post once I’m done.
I’m trying to incorporate Inktober with my other “daily goals” so here.
I’ve been trying to learn Japanese for quite a while now and I’m trying to practice using colored pencils as well. Doing it this way is like hitting three birds with one stone.
I noticed that I’m starting to get a hang of how to use colored pencils with layering colors to get what color I want. *tap on shoulder* Well, I was supposed to do a “sunrise” effect like the picture below but… I messed up, I don’t know how to fix it anymore.
Baby steps, baby steps.
Medyo late na akong nakapag-umpisa para sa InkTober2016 at ito ang unang gawa ko.
