Do What you Love

I can't believe it's been a year. 
March 26, 2012 I hit the publish button for the first time.

Blogging has created new friendships and kept me on track with my (never ending) projects.
But among all this, 

this year of blogging has really helped me realize that I do need to do what I love...even when life is busy and there is not much time for myself.

So, do what you love!
For me is hard, because I love to do many things:
painting 
(not just limited to painting walls and furniture),
cooking,
building,
rock climbing 
(or really any kind of physical activity)
playing violin,
and so much more...
This is why I am rarely bored...
My husband most spoken question:
"Daniela, can you just sit down and do nothing?"
Uhm...no.
So, do what you love...
for you.


Stay Frugal,
Daniela

Happy anniversary, I really like your blog. You are like me, I always have things to do and don't even understand being bored.

Kelly said...

Congrats on your anniversary! I had no idea you played the violin. How cool is that???!!!! I'd love to hear you play sometime. You are talented in so many ways. You really are a well rounded person! I'm just amazed at all that you do.

Enjoy your blog so much. I to have a violin that I took lesson with. Although, I don't pick it up much I still love the thing. You are quite talented.

Dearest Daniela,
LOVE the way you are! Congrats on your first but very meaningful anniversary as you have achieved so much! You also keep surprising us; playing even the violin. So you are a melancholic, passionate person that really LIVES! I can understand your husband. Whenever husband Pieter has to zip up something in the back or do something for me, all he says is: Can't you stand STILL for one moment...
But it's far better this way than being boring and bored!
Hugs,
Mariette

Happy Blog-iversary!
When I was younger, I found it hard to sit and do nothing...I had to be multi-tasking. As I have gotten older, it's a bit easier to just sit and enjoy a movie or nap, though I still like to paint while watching movies! Speaking of painting, I want to see some of your work!
Glad to be connected,
-Revi

Congrats on one year of blogging! Love the photos of your violin. I have a daughter who says she wants to play a violin :) I've been taking piano lessons for several months now and I hope one day to be able to sit down and play effortlessly. At this point that seems almost impossible but I am going to keep trying!

Congrats on one year!!! You are doing a great job. How wonderful to have all those interests and play the violin, too. I am so glad I found you early on and can follow your journey. My hubby asks the same thing- Um-No is my answer, too- xo Diana

Happy Blog-iversary! Haha my husband says the same thing. I think guys are sometimes so much more relaxed than girls. But I find joy in keeping busy, as long as I'm not overwhelmed. Then I do need to take step back.

ps: the photos of your voilin are stunning!

I enjoy your blog! Your projects, recipes and frugal tips are inspiring or helpful. Do what you love and be yourself :) I too don't get bored and have to be doing something! Wouldn't have it any other way.

Happy anniversary, Daniela! You've been doing a really good job, take time for yourself and to play the violin! I wish I could play an instrument!
