My little ones first piece of wall art arrived from @paper_pad and I love it!
A big thank you to Anila for creating such a beautiful design and collection. The way that she creates these pieces to be relatable to children is appreciated and lends itself for easy story time with the kids as they grow.
As a child I grew up understanding that before any big step in life, Ganesh Pooja was to be done to clear obstacles and to bless the journey you were going forward with. Ganesh is revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom. Known as the god of beginnings, he is honored at the start of rites and ceremonies.
When I think of my LO coming into this world, I would love them to wake up every morning feeling fresh, safe, grounded, and free of any obstacles that may hinder them.
Becoming a mother has me digging through my memory archives to the things my mom would say during pooja or in passing about rituals or mythological stories and now formulating my own way of how I would share these with my baby love as they grow.
3 lessons from the stories of Ganesh.
1. Always think before reacting, the power of anger & how it could impact those we love. If we take a moment to pause & assess what is happening around us, we could save ourselves and loved ones much grief.
->> The story of Ganesh's birth and how he got his elephant head:
2. No matter your status or how powerful you may seem, humility and a humble heart towards all mankind will carry us further.
->> The story of Ganesh and Lord Vishnu's missing konch.
3.) Everything happens for a reason, we may not know it right away but eventually we understand in time.
