I’m Raga here, Hope you are doing good. This is my first blog post in 2018, so I wish you all a very happy new year. I love to play at CASology, and the cue card this week is ‘encourage’ and at CAS-ual Friday challenge where the theme is to make encouragement cards and at AAA cards challenge where the theme is “quote”. What a great cues to kick-start this year!
I made two cards to enter into the challenges. Here they go.
In this card, I would like to refer my dad and my husband who are always supporting and encouraging not only in my art journey but also in life hurdles. Just a bold sentiment (handwritten and hand drawn) and pops of colours added with hand gestures, 👋(always at my back and pat me) and 👍(encourage me for the things I accomplished regardless of their size). I have also found some supporting and encouraging friends ✌️in this crafting community. A big thanks to you all.😊
For my next card, I hand wrote the sentiment “Believe in yourself, you will be unstoppable”. I used pulse line to represent the same, as each breath, rise and fall. We should not fear about fall, instead we should believe in ourselves and keep trying, then nothing can stop us from achieving what we love to. 😊 Remember we should never fail to rise again whenever we face a fall, just like the waves with more confidence in ourselves.
Here are some more pictures,
Personally, whenever I feel stressed or down, I would like to hear to two of my favourite inspirational as well as encouraging songs in Tamil. I would like to quote some lyrics here, as it may help anyone of you to feel better.
1. “….. எந்த தீமைக்குள்ளும் சிறு நன்மை உண்டு
வெற்றியை போலவே ஒரு தோல்வியும் நல்லதடி
வேப்பம்பூவிலும் சிறு தேன் துளி உள்ளதடி…”
These lines are from Santhosham song, youth movie(Tamil) which means that there is little goodness in every bad things happen to us. We should learn to look for goodness in everything as a fall is also good as equally as victory. In precise it emphasis on the quote ” when it is cloudy, look for rainbow; if it is dark, look for stars “
2.” ….இன்பத்தில் பிறந்து இன்பத்தில் வளர்ந்து
இன்பத்தில் மடிந்தவன் யாருமில்லை
துன்பத்தில் பிறந்து துன்பத்தில் வளர்ந்து
துன்பத்தில் முடிந்தவன் யாருமில்லை
இன்பம் பாதி துன்பம் பாதி
இரண்டும் வாழ்வின் அங்கம்
நெருப்பில் வெந்து நீரினில் குளித்தால்
நகையாய் மாறும் தங்கம்
தோல்வியும் கொஞ்சம் வேண்டுமடி
வெற்றிக்கு அதுவே ஏணியடி…”
These lines are from oh manamae song, ullam ketkumae movie, which means ,
There are no men in this world
who born , grow and die with happiness
There are no men in this world
who born, grow and die with sorrow
Both happiness and sorrow are the
part of our life.
Gold will turn into jewel
Only after it burn into fire and bathe into water.
we need a little fall too
and that fall is the ladder for success.!!
So dear friends, don’t fear about your fall, your dreams have no expirations, so believe in yourself, you will be unstoppable 😀😊.
Yes, come on lovelies, past is past don’t overmourn about it anymore, let’s start the New year with more confidence!!!👍👍👍✌️✌️✌️
