Sometimes we are too busy to focus on the outside world instead of ourselves, too busy to help others and forget our needs. I have been drawing and posting on Instagram for some years, using cute and fun doodles to remind all of us that we deserve love and joy.

Whatever day you are having, I hope you remember there is a Soolooka in your heart.

Make self-care and self-love a habit, and practice it every day. Love yourself 1% more each day, it adds up.

Check out my previous post here.

Even we practise self-love, we choose positivity, sometimes we get hurt, and we still love. If you feel like you can’t love now, have faith, you will love again.

I'm Cheng Chi Sing (Jessey), an illustrator from Hong Kong who is behind Soolooka. My illustrations focus on self-love and self-care. I draw in hopes of inspiring and encouraging souls to see their stars and reminding them that they are lovable no matter what they are going through.

If you think tears are bad, probably you haven’t noticed the growth the tears bring to your heart.

So true. We can celebrate each others success and joys. *without putting ourselves down*

I'm not someone who has been drawing since I was little. My family thought I was an untalented child when it came to art. However, in 2016, I plucked up the courage and started an Instagram account posting my drawings without any formal training in art. I am self-taught, I watched a few online videos to get the idea of drawing.

After I decided to quit my last job and take a break, I started thinking about what I can do next. One day I heard a voice inside of me saying "learn illustration and share what you’ve learned from the past and in everyday life with others". Of course, I doubted if I could really do it. But my heart told me firmly just to do it anyway. And this was where I started to create Soolooka and share self-love through Soolooka.

How can you see clearly who you are if you always doubt yourself? And with all the emotions. But you are more than you think you are, allow yourself to see the true beautiful you.

Sometimes bad mood visits with an invitation, it may stay for a while or maybe long, BUT it will go away.

The name "Soolooka" came to my husband’s mind in a conversation about spirituality. And now it’s a magic word to remind everyone that you deserve love and joy.

I get inspiration from my past experiences and everyday life. I always am inspired by others through books and conversations too. Another way to get inspired, which I find very interesting, is talking with my heart. Every day I reserve some time, long or short, to talk with my heart, to feel what it feels, and to listen to what it wants to tell me.

Besides creating illustrations, I love to read books. Books show me what’s in the author's heart and mind that I can always learn something from. I also like to write Chinese calligraphy which makes me calm.

Something I would like to say to the audience: I hope through my illustrations, you can see the magic inside you. And even on dark days, the illustrations can give you love and light.

How often do we let self-blame to stop us from moving on? Forgive yourself and be free.

Always remember you are amazing, and be willing to see the good in you.

VERY hard for a depressed person to do this. Sometimes I can just be proud of myself for adopting a 14 year old cat. I don't know what happened to his people. But he deserves kindness too.

I'm kind of obsessed in trying to help others, even ones that have wronged me. Some people think it's my best trait, but then I don't have the power or the confidencde to actually help. And I NEVER do it for myself. I don't know how to change.

We are not able to control everything in life, we can still choose how to enjoy life.

Are you too busy focusing on others that we forget that you need your own attention too? Always remember to love ourselves

@geoffrey sounds like you had a bad experience with a narcissist at some point in your life. Not everyone is that way. There are people that will genuinely love you and want to help you through your hard times. The way you speak to others and mostly yourself is what your actions will be. Be careful which words you choose to let out.

Are you letting others’ comments, expectations, discouragement or stories to shape your future? Let go of those and create your own desired reality.

Because we have choices, we won’t feel trapped. Maybe not all the choices are good ones, at least we know we will pick the best one at the moment.

The process is not always an easy one, you may even think it will never lead you anywhere but struggle and regret. Have faith, trust yourself and trust the process, everything will be OK.
