Weekly reminder 5/12

This is your friendly reminder to:

  • Slow down — there is no competition to beat, no awards to be won, no grades to brag about, no crowns to be worn. Life is too short to let it become a blur.
  • Seek contentment — it is different than temporary happiness that comes from massages and manicures, spa days and shopping excursions. It’s something that comes from a daily practice of gratitude, of self-love, of kindness.
  • Support other women — without judgment or jealousy or comparison. There is room for all of us. Compliment generously, listen intently, laugh heartily.

You get one shot at this thing called life. Live it well. Stay creative, be kind.

Hi there, I am Mansi, a self-taught artist based in Silicon Valley. I was a full-time communications professional for two decades, with a desk job and a six-figure salary until I decided to become a mom. Motherhood, as many will attest, can be extremely exhausting, especially in those first years. Art became my quiet place. It restored my sense of self. It gave me renewed energy. It helped me become a better mom. I was led down the path of creation by instinct and “discovered“ in early 2019 by a fellow kindred spirit at one of my art pop-ups who asked me to join her entrepreneurial venture. While I immersed myself full time in the role of CFO and co-founder of this women-led venture supporting local women makers, I missed experimenting with mixed-media. So, in 2021, I've decided to focus my energies full time in finessing my craft, producing more online tutorials and offering in-person art workshops for both adults and children. Thank you for joining me on this adventure as I experiment, learn and continue creating custom pieces of joy.
