Inner happiness

C faburlifekhloe (1)

For the longest time of 17 years without studying hard, I thought I would never attempt to study hard ever after.  However, my studying style has completely turned upside down ever since I chose to study overseas. The moment I stepped into a classroom with foreign language, I was extremely scared and puzzled. I felt like I made the biggest mistake of my life. I wish I had never asked my parents allowed me to study overseas. I knew I couldn’t take back the promise I made to my parents, so I chose to study hard to catch up with the modules. I have to admit that it was by far the hardest time of my life. Studying 80% of the subjects I had never studied before with foreign language was incredibly difficult for me, especially I was the one who had never attempted to study hard in the past. Therefore, I decided to put my heart and soul with tripling efforts on studying and it  was the time when I started to study day and night like a crazy nerd. After a few months of studying crazily, I started seeing results. I became one of the top 3 students in majority of the subjects I studied. I could taste how sweet the fruitful moment was resulted from the hard work I put. That sweetness remained in my head which pushed me to study even harder in order to taste it continuously. Somehow I was addicted to such sweetness which had become an ego of me. I couldn’t care anything else, but the results. I forgot how enjoyable the studying process can be. I forgot the beauty of daily life. I even forgot to care about my inner happiness.

It eventually took me a few years to realize the importance of inner happiness. Chasing for the results can give me instant excitement and happiness, but it can never last forever. These feelings can be very illusive just like externalities can be changed very rapidly. You can never hold it tight and make it stay the way it is forever. On the contrary, inner happiness can conquer whatever changes on the outside. Look at the digital artwork my friend and I created. We used cool tone colors which are not often the popular colors associated with happiness. However, I was incredibly happy on the inside and the feelings of happiness was very intense till a point where the cool tone colors had no effect on changing it  from a happy image to a sad image. Inner happiness also helps protect you from negativity. It is inevitable to avoid experiencing negativity in our lives. The negativity of our lives was being portrayed as the noises attacking me in the background. However, the level of happiness I had didn’t change a bit due to the fact that my inner happiness had already tuned itself into a big scarf I worn like an armor to protect me from negativity. I’m glad I can finally enjoy my life now due to the power of inner happiness and get to understand why many advocate “happiness comes from within”.

P.S. Thank you everyone for being patient with me since I took a break traveling to Thailand! ❤ I’ll try to upload my traveling photos in a few weeks. Stay tuned for that!!! 🙂

Stay positive and smile always,

Gratitude

B faburlifekhloeHi everyone! Hope you all are doing well! 🙂  After finishing “The Journey of Self-Discovery” series, here I am again introducing you the latest digital artwork “Gratitude” my friend and I created.

Before I jump into the artwork, I would like to tell you something about myself. I’m an emotional person who easily shows any type of emotions  on my face. I can’t really hide anything at all. I love to smile and I laugh hard on stupid little things of daily life. If something really upsets me, I will cry like a baby.

This artwork has perfectly shown my emotional personality. I was laughing so hard after having an ice-cream for no reason at that time. I laughed too hard till a point where I had to cover my mouth to avoid disturbing others at the same restaurant because of the noise my crazy laughter made. I was very happy that a  good friend of mine captured that special moment of mine before we turn it into a digital artwork. Some people might think I’m such a weirdo who laughed so hard after having an ice-cream for no reason and now even turned it into an artwork?!?! Well it is much more special than anything to me. It not only captures a moment of my life which can be a part of my good memories, but also teaches me a lesson of gratitude and how simple my life can be. Having an ice-cream might seem like something ordinary and there might be some people having it on a regular basis. However, there are so  many people who haven’t gotten a chance to try an ice-cream. So many people out there are in need of food, clothing, water…struggling  to live…It reminds me to be grateful for what  I have. It also tells me to cherish a moment like this can make my life simpler than I thought it would be. Making my life this simple can bring me an abundance of joys. The vibrant color combinations of reddish orange, yellow, purplish pink, orange were being used in this artwork to depict the abundance of joys that I have ever since living my life simple. The purpose of making this artwork is to remind myself to be grateful for everything I have and help others in need wherever I can. Simultaneously, I would like to deliver the same message to all of you.

Hope this artwork makes you all happy and have a wonderful day! 🙂

The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 3

A faburlifekhloe

Hi everyone! Hope you all are doing well! 🙂 Here I am again posting another artwork which continues “The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 2”. Speaking of “The Journey of Self-Discovery”, I got a reader asking me why the series of “The Journey of Self-Discovery” seem so sad. Honestly, I wasn’t trying to make you all sad or anything. I was just expressing my complicated feelings during my journey of self-discovery. It can be miserable and difficult at times, but I still remain positive.

“The Journey of Self-Discovery – part 3” has clearly shown how positive I am about my future. It also explains the reason why I mentioned that I still remain positive even though part 1 and 2 seemed a bit sad overall. Yes – it wasn’t easy for me to deal with the pressures I received from my family and relatives, especially I’m just in the progress of proving them what I chose is right. Simultaneously, It really does take time to prove them and they are not that patient to see me proving them. Therefore, those pressures keep shaking the vision I have on my dream from time to time. However, I know I shouldn’t be affected by those pressures. In order to be myself and achieve my dream, I must be strong enough to tackle those pressures and positive enough to make my dream happen. I also need to keep motivating myself to stay true to myself and do what it takes to achieve my dream.

Moving on to the artwork, I’m sure a lot of you can see almost a complete difference in this artwork compared to part 1 and 2. As far as you remember, my friend and I used the color of purplish blue as a main color for part 1 and 2 . The purplish blue color expressed my complicated and miserable feelings created by the struggles and uncertainties I had. However, my friend and I used brighter colors for this artwork to show how positive I am about my future and how happy I am to welcome my future. The brighter green color is to remind myself to constantly refresh my mind with a brand new perspective to see my pressures, struggles and uncertainties. I shouldn’t see them as a pain. Conversely, I should make them as my motivation. The reddish orange color was also being used for the artwork. This color not only shows how happy I am after using a brand new perspective to see my pressures, struggles and uncertainties as a motivation, but also reveals the positivity I have towards my future. Using this color as a dominant color for the artwork shows the level of my happiness has dramatically increased after adopting the brand new perspective to my life. Apart from the color, you will see the people I referred as my family and relatives have become fewer. They have become fewer not because they are not in my life anymore. It’s because I chose not to let them take control of my life. Therefore, you will see me being a focal point in the artwork because I started to take control of my life. Last but not least, there is a very important note I would love to make about this artwork is the bright light on the top right corner. There was a small story behind it actually. I was on a small cruise going under a canal and there was a bright light peeking through the end of the canal. I would describe our lives are like canals. We constantly go through different canals in our lives. When we go under the canal is just like experiencing a darker time of our lives, but it doesn’t mean it is the end of the world. If we keep a positive attitude towards our future, we will always see a bright light (bright future) at the end of the day. It is like we will always see a bright light after going through a canal.
