Super inspiring day: #realtalktambay

My tummy hurt because I was extremely nervous before giving my talk yesterday at #realtalktambay. I was invited to talk about creating consistently and talking about what I love is exciting for me but also nerve-wracking. 🙂

Happy to report that I didn’t faint while speaking! 🙂 Glad I got out of my comfort zone and happy I leapt into the fire and found out how nourishing it was haha (based on the latest Magic Lessons podcast which I am so enjoying!)

Here are the tips I shared:

I love cocoa, snowball and breezy 🙂 I made a quick sketch inspired by my obsession:

Bucket list item: calligraphy/lettering atop my photos

I’ve always wanted to try this since I’ve seen it years ago and I was finally able to try it recently:

I’m pretty happy with my calligraphy progress as well. My hands are still shaky as hell, but practice makes permanent 🙂

I plan on writing this quote again in a month to check my progress. My friends have been doing it and I’m curious as to whether mine will improve as well.

Good things: Finding my “style”

A wise friend named Geli gave me advice in brush lettering/calligraphy: Embrace your own style, she said.

I’ve been practicing daily-mostly foregoing my morning yoga so I could write a few words. I’m slowly learning what works for me and what doesn’t, so I just need to wake up earlier so I could squeeze in a few minutes of yoga too 🙂
