Blossoming Flower

201A faburlifekhloe

As many of you know that I hasn’t been really happy since my mood has been dramatically affected by the loss of my uncle. In fact, I’ve become more emotional nowadays because there were way too many sad incidents happened to my family and  life struggles happened in the past few years. It is what gets me realized life is too short. I must do something that makes me truly happy. Therefore, I choose to make art to express my emotions and thoughts. To me, art is a wonderland where I can transform a blank canvas into a colorful world which I envision to see…I can express my million complicated feelings without even talking…I can paint whatever I want without being judged by the blank canvas…The creativity will always be remained in me.

The digital artwork I made this time is exactly a wonderland to me. It is a wonderland which I envision to see in my life. Although the sad incidents and my own life struggles happened in the past few years have dragged me down for a while, I believe it is not the end of my life. In fact, I believe it is a new beginning of my life. Without bitterness, I will never know what sweetness tastes like. Without failure, I will never know what success is. Without life struggles, I will never know what I truly want. I know all of these happened will never be able to stop my life from blossoming just as the Khloe you and I see from the artwork standing firm in the middle of a blossoming flower. The more the difficulties I experience, the stronger I am. The more the cruel reality turns my life into black and white, the more vibrant I will color my life. Choosing Amsterdam as the artwork background not only reminds me of the good memories I had when travelling to Amsterdam, but it also symbolizes that bad time will be flamed to dust and good time will always be here with me.

Although the artwork was initially made to encourage myself to stay positive, it isn’t dedicated to myself anymore. It is made for all of us now. I hope the artwork helps you out and puts a big smile on your face when dealing with ups and downs in your life. I also hope  to see how your life blossom as a colorful flower. Here I am sending my sincere thanks to you who always brighten my day with your love and continuous support. I love you all my beautiful souls! ❤ Hugs and kisses to you ❤

Stay positive and smile always,

The Power of “Yes I can!”

207 faburlifekhloe

People who have never done yoga in their lives or even yoga beginners often find yoga challenging and intimidating. Their first reaction to advanced yoga postures usually are “not a chance”, “there is no way I can do this”, “never going to happen”, “I wish I could do this”, etc. The list of believing how impossible it is to do it can go endless.

Believe it or not, I’ve also gone through the same phrase when I first started doing yoga. I was scared of falling. I was scared of injuring myself. I was basically scared of trying any of the advanced yoga postures. I was stuck at doing the same basic yoga postures for a year and a half. I couldn’t get myself proceeded to the next level. I started to question myself trying to figure out where the problem was. Keep thinking whether I wasn’t strong enough to handle the advanced postures or I wasn’t flexible enough to do the postures. The problem was I didn’t believe in myself. There were always some negative pre-assumptions running on my mind. What if I couldn’t do it? What if I injured myself badly? What if …?

As soon as I started to tell myself “Yes I can!” before attempting to do the advanced postures, I got it done usually in 1 to 2 weeks. It wasn’t a story telling me how flexible I am (In fact, I was born with a moderate flexibility only). It wasn’t a story telling me how great I am at doing yoga. It wasn’t a story telling me how crazy my body can be. It was actually a story showing me the power of “Yes I can!” and how our mindset can change the way we react.  Obstacles in life are often as challenging and intimidating as the advanced yoga postures. We can either choose to stay in a comfort zone by believing how impossible to conquer the obstacles or to believe in ourselves by saying “Yes I can!” to let go of our fears and start facing. We always have a choice to choose, but the result will end dramatically different.

Stay strong and positive,
