Still at it...

Listening to Celine Dion's Ashes. The mood's been like this, you know, like the kind that you feel when you wonder what your life is about, what the world is becoming. The whats, the whys and the hows. I think I have grit. The trait that Angela Lee Duckworth talks about; grit, perseverance and self-control are the markers for success. I think I have them, or I would've gave up commuting to work for 3 hours on a daily basis. Would I? Sometimes, I wonder why I'm still at it. For once, I feel like giving up. Sigh, it's the phase again...

So, when this kind of phase hits me, I do what I do best. Sew and write.

The pen is gold. No, I mean it's gold. I love the way it held the nib at the angle that was just nice for me. This kinda cheered me up. 
(Moblique pen ordered from Stickerrific store)

I also finished this, after buying the IKEA's ELLY tea towel and sewing just a few of the designs and leaving it for months.

End product (of procrastination)

Hmm.. the 'before' product kinda looks nicer, no?

Yep, the quotes speak to me. 'Exhale fear, inhale courage'. I'm scared to let go of what I have now. But people always say, you may gain other things if you do. 

I really need a lot of courage, and foolishness.
