Enjoy the Moment
Nurturing is cultivating and fostering relationships and connections within ourselves. When we take steps to care for ourselves, we gain the strength to care for others.
Women have the gift of being natural nurturers who can multitask by juggling the roles they identify in family, career, and community. However, deep down in their conscience, they long for tranquility and moments of peace but often turn it down.
Women often downplay to prioritize self-care or well-being because they feel obligated to provide care and support to others and shy away from setting boundaries.
In many instances, they find it difficult to say it's okay to take a break, it's okay to ask for help, or it's okay to indulge in self-care because they feel guilty.
As a woman, a mother, a wife, an artist, and various roles that I identify myself in my family and community, I honor my self-care time through art making.
I make art to find my inner peace, and I hope others will experience it through my art.
Enjoy the Moment
I love drinking hot coffee, twice in the morning and once in the evening. Often, I stop and take sips while I scroll through my social media feed, make art in my studio, write about my work, or watch Netflix with my husband. But, today, I decided to enjoy "my moment with my morning Keurig coffee," relishing the flavor when I slurped every sip, feeling the warmth of the coffee going down my throat, and the sound of my gulp, which made me nostalgic about my mom's aromatic South Indian philter coffee. So, for my second round today, I took my time to make Philter coffee and enjoyed every sip and slurp.
