Savor Everything!!

I was busy until last week for myself and have been busy for my family. Then I finally found time for painting!


Savor Everything!!




I know `savor' is for food.
But like savoring a variety of flavors like sweet, bitter, spicy and sour,
we savor all kinds of emotions, experiences and relationships.

I love spicy, sweet and sour, all kinds of flavors

Therefore, we savor everything which happens in front of us and emotions which are caused by those happenings.

When you have a bitter experience, please allow yourlsef to be soaked in the bitterness.
When you are sad, please allow yourself to be soaked in the sadness.
When you are angry, unless you trouble others, please allow yourself to take the anger out.

I'm sure something will be born from deep sadness, furious anger and uncontrollable bitterness.

But if these emotions are not genuine, only fake can be born.
And that fake bubbles disappear on their way up.

When you reach the bottom of bottom,
genuine bubbles, genuine desires, genuine yourself and genuine pass can be born.

Those genuine bubbles are led by light.
Bubbles of sadness and anger are transformed into bubbles of joy, happiness and light.

Even when you are soaked alone in the sadness at the bottom of the deep ocean,
the light reaches you.
You just don't notice the fact because your sadness is so deep.
However, LIGHT REACHES YOU!

When you are good, you can be somebody's light and guide the person.
When you are not good, somebody can be your light and guide you.

We are not alone.
We are each other's light.
We shine on each other's light brightly.
We walk the pass of light together.

I'm here to make your light burn brighter
like you make mine burn brighter.

in love and light,
Chiaki


...I was thinking of those things while I was painting this picutre...

I RULEZ TEH SKIEZ!!


I'm back!

Since I spent busy days and my Internet was disconnected due to my stupidity of losing access code when I changed providers, I couldn't update my blog. But I'm very fine and enjoy my life!

We have only a few days in November and one more month in 2011. These days I feel time passes really fast and many things happen one after another.

If you wish something miracle and magical happen, one month is enough to attract them. Before the year 2012 comes, I hope all of you can complete aspirations you made in the beginning of this year.

I wish your life be filled with true love and happiness!

Have a memorable month and few more days this year!!





The last of the autumn leaves

Wearing: Zara jacket and top (old), H&M Pleather pants, Acne boots, F&F scarf, Rings coming soon to S&F Shop!
Firstly I owe you all an apology! As you may have noticed there has been a huge lag of blog posts over the last couple of weeks and even tweets! I have got extremely busy with University now that I am in my final year, so I am trying to plan a blog schedule right now that is enough to keep you guys informed but little enough for me to cope with. It may have to be short and sweet for a little while. Please bare with me though, you are all such a support!
Right onto the post! I attended a beautiful wedding at the weekend and stayed in this lovely country manor house in sussex. I had such a good time, the wedding had some really original ideas like someone doing charactertures at the wedding after party as well as a huge vintage sweet stand which I loved! There was no internet there for the weekend which was actually really nice as I couldn't stress about reports or (lack of) blogging. It was so nice for me to wake up in the countryside once again and breathe in fresh air! 
I wanted to wear a simple classic outfit in earthy tones as it was for the wedding breakfast, I love wearing silk and leather together, they balance each other out perfectly!

Enjoy 11-11-11♪

Japan finished the day, 2011 11 11 a few hours ago. I enjoyed the day feeling surrounded by lots of positive energy. In addition to this, it was a full moon on this day. It was supposed to be a special full moon. However, it was raining all day in Japan. I couldn't see the full moon. But we know rain and water were good for purification. I enjoyed being purified by rain, actually the sound of rain. I stayed home and enjoyed painting pictures of Christmas tree for my next pastel workshop.

Do you know if the last 2 numbers of your birth year add to your age, the result for everyone is the same this year, 2011, which is 111.

For example, the birth year is 1990 and your age this year is 21.
the last 2 numbers, 90 + your age 21=111!

Try this, everyone!

All of us live in the special year.
We chose to be born and live at this special moment.
And we can meet each other at this special moment.
This is already a miracle!
Please enjoy this moment!!

For people who experience this date, 111111, please enjoy this!
Focus on the positive energy not on negative one.

Your thought create reality.
The speed which thought turns into reality becomes faster these days.
Not only positive but also negative ideas become reality.
Release negative ideas like fear, anxiety and doubts whenever they come up in your mind.
Just surround yourself with positive energy like happiness, peace and love.

The power of full moon help you to release unnecessary ideas, customs and behavior.
Please enjoy moon-bathing when the weather is clear at night!
