Weekly reminder 5/5

This is your friendly reminder to:
— Reclaim your identity because you’re more than just a mom, a spouse, a daughter or any other caregiving role you’ve been assigned. Take yourself back for an hour, a day, a weekend…celebrate being un-needed. Rejoice being YOU!

— Reclaim your three-year-old self and say “YES” to ice cream before dinner, splashing in the puddles, eating with your hands, not combing your hair, wearing mismatched patterns. Say yes to everything that gives YOU joy without a thought for all that social judgment and condescension!

— Reclaim your truth because it’s in there waiting for permission to speak up. Diplomacy, compromise and people-pleasing should not stifle your authenticity. Give yourself permission to have an opinion, take a stand, be strong. Because you are worth listening to!

Save. Share. Always remember to 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.
