Pastel coloured skies

My favourite shawl. Head dress I made by hand.
A tantric Padmasambhava and Yeshe Tsogyal statue I helped repaint for a friend. The union of wisdom and compassion. Wish I had a similar one! Hopefully one day I will afford one ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

You know how you need to pretend to sleep in order to fall asleep? And at some point it just happens. Maybe it’s the same with other areas of life. Fake it till you make it, kind of, not in a bad way – just a dedicated one. I have noticed at least that the same applies to yoga and meditation sometimes. If I feel stressed, anxious and restless, I force myself to do the practice anyway. And at some level it still does its magic, of that I am 100% sure. In between the sleepless thoughts and rough emotions – they become like clouds in the pastel coloured sky.

Wishing all a lovely calm Polar night, and remember that it’s in darkness you shine the brightest ๐ŸŒŒโœจ๐ŸŽ†

  1. This is amazing advice Monica for everything in life as you say. Yes…just do the thing and then the motivation will come to keep going. This month I have been writing a novel and have been just rambling on about all sort of crap until it all starts to just flow out of me, even if I’m not in the mood to write or too tired or whatever. So the whole idea ‘fake it and then you will start to feel more motivated later’ or fake sleeping and then you will actually fall asleep is so true! The statue that you helped to paint for your friend looks really cool. Also I love the hat that you made, it really looks great on you. Big hugs xxx

      1. Thank you my friend that’s such amazing encouragement to me, I am going to keep going. I took a holiday from work to just focus on it and this has definitely helped, I am up to 34,000 so far of the 50,000. Warm hugs xxx

      2. I’m up to 46,352 words now but I need to get to 50,000 to make the target, I have now run out of things to say in the book so just trying to now make things up to get to the target. It has been enjoyable to do, sometimes exhausting and frustrating but definitely worth it and I have learned so much about writing in the process. Thank you my friend for your encouragement xxx

      3. The book is looking good I got to the finish line and wrote 50,000 words and so it was a good effort. It needs to be divided into smaller chapters or short stories I think so just going to do that in next few weeks. Big hugs ๐Ÿค— โค
