Lately its been a tad difficult for my life’s puzzle bits and pieces to fit together. If its just me you know I wouldn’t mind but the thing is I have people who depend on me and I just can’t afford to lose it. I tried to calm myself down and not worry. By this time, I told myself, you should know that whatever happens God will always give you what you need. And yeah, I should know better. So to keep myself from thinking too much I started out on this little project for my work room. Actually this started last December. There was one day that I got so mad that I cried. I don’t like that feeling, I don’t like it at all. I feel like my life is sucked right out of me whenever I do, so I always try not to feel that way. But you know sometimes its just inevitable. So during that day I prayed really hard. I asked God to take away the anger I’m feeling, I don’t want it. And then an idea hit me, why don’t I keep myself busy so my mind’s off those things that just upsets me.
That’s when my mini-renov project came to existence. At first, I said, I just wanted to paint my walls white so the room will have better lighting.
So it did! Then I was looking into the boxes I have in storage and found all my diplomas from Kinder to College. I was like, this has been here for 6 years now (I moved in this house 6 years a go with my mom, niece and nephew) maybe its about time to let it out and hang on the wall. But I don’t want it to just be on the wall. I want something with it to represent the diplomas I have. I thought of how I got them, the sacrifices my parents did so I get a good education, all my hardwork to make sure that those sacrifices won’t go to waste. So I thought of a tree, the diplomas symbolizes the fruits of mine and my parent’s labor.
And the idea just keep on flowing. And its good I love it, it keeps me calm in this not so great situation I’m in. I thought of making a mini library, like a DIY one. I still haven’t gone through it but I was able to paint on the other wall where my Our Lady of Manaog is hanging. I want to paint flowers for her but I’m not that good of an artist. So what I lack in talent I make up in skills and thinking 🙂 Since the design that I wanted requires me to paint a straight line (I’ve been struggling on coloring, lines and all since I was in Kinder. To think I would have been better by now, sadly no 😉 ) I just used tape as a guide for the lines, painted it and added the circles to make it look like some sort of a flower 🙂
Now that I’m done with the walls, the next would be the shelves for my library and the paintings that I want to hang on the other side 🙂 But that just got to wait for I have work in a bit. Though tired, I got so busy that I kept my worries at bay for now. Well, as they say “tomorrow is another day”. But today, I felt good and accomplished, thank God ❤
