Second day of September, and with so many blues and weird thoughts running in my mind, i always find time for myself somewhere.
I am the type of girl who love pampering myself, because after all i love myself the most and if I am happy then only i can make others happy.
These days, the days when i have to spend 24 hours at home i am deeply frustrated and I realised that it is taking the happiness out of me because of doing nothing except sleeping, reading books writing and surfing on social platforms .
Yes, i know this may be blessed life for many of you all but for me it is irritating now because I have been enjoying this life from 3-4 years.
So to overcome myself from the dark thoughts that capture me when i am alone i started meditating and more on that i started researching on simple tricks to keep my brain happy.
Along with exercising and watering plants i developed the hobby of sketching with pencil .
This hobby works as wonder to me, i remember when i was in class 2, i always wanted a pen to write and now that i have worked with pen for years I always cherish writing with that pencil on blank paper and it is not always that I get words to calm the angry and frustated me so what i do is sketch…
I take blank paper and sketch the train of thoughts running in mind.
I pour my emotions via the pencil sketch and feel relaxed.
Yes, i am not a good artist and even i was very bad artist during school time because I took the help of my mom to sketch those lungs and skeletons of biology when I got them as homework.
During early days she helped me by doing that for me, when as I started growing she stopped that and sat near me and inspected me while making the sketch.
At times I won’t be able to make a single line but then she would sketch on rough paper and I would overwrite on it,this is how i learned my sketching and mom’s efforts worked very well when i got Best Project Award during the academic year 2012.
I still remember the teacher saying, Your words sketches won you this.
And this was when i was motivated to test my sketching and experiment new things.
Then i started making designs for heena (mehndi ) and got the prize in my very first competition.
Today when i sit with my my mom, we both laugh at this, that how coward i was to sketch and now i am so free in experinenting new things as well as this is working as a stress buster on me.
Here is something that cane out when i was thinking about things that I like or things that make me happy –
I sketched it with anger,and when it was finished it made me happiest, because i got a doodle foe my brand #HillStationReader and may be that when you sketch things, you sketch your emotions along with it and it spreads positivity around .
