Personal Sharing about my insight for Christmas this year.

I believe this Christmas in 2020 is going to be a special one for everybody! Less party, more home time and more self reflections.

As Christmas is approaching, I started to read the the children's bible to my two lovely boys. Though I have heard of the story a million times, I have never been a story teller and I was greatly moved.

1/ When Jesus was born, the angels said to the terrified shepherds

'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. ...".

In 2020, there is no doubt that most of our Christmas wishes are to get rid of COVID19 ASAP. Surely it would be a "great joy" to all the people if it disappear all of a sudden. So what was the "great joy" the angels were referring to 2020 years ago? They were referring the birth of Jesus, the saviour who saved us from sins, and this good news is still effective today! Isn't that more powerful? Even if COVID19 is gone, we still need to face global warming, natural disasters, wars, decease and death... However, Jesus the saviour, promised to bring whoever believes in him to a new place with a new beginning, a place with no more pain and tears, which overcome ALL of our current problems. Can you imagine such "great joy" ? So forget about all your current worries, because the "good news that will cause great joy for all the people" exists 2020 years ago! Joy is always around waiting for us to accept!

2/ Jesus is born in a manger As christian, we all know Jesus is the lord, the king of kings. But when he comes to the earth as human, he humbly arrives in a manger, not in a fancy and ultra clean hospital. The thought of it makes me cry, it is not about how clean and beautiful you are outside, but how clean and pure you are inside.

If you are a christian, let's pray for the world! Dilemmas are rolling like snowball, may all people hear about the good news and have hope to begin in the new place. If you are not christian and may be feeling clueless reading this, God bless you!

Joy to the World, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King; Let every heart prepare Him room.

Hi! I’m Jola. I’m a Christian, a creative designer, a great wife (I like to believe that) and mom to two adorable boys. I have a zest for life and a passion for creative design.

I wear many hats as a wife, mother, an entrepreneur and a graphic designer which enable me to explore various nuances of my skills, including beauty, fashion, and all things creative.

Like most of you out there I enjoyed going through the numerous blogs and vlogs and most have been extremely beneficial, providing me with practical help and info. I’m not ashamed to say I’ve gained a lot of insights and I felt compelled to return the favor.

This is how I ended up creating content as a blogger and vlogger myself - the voice or the brain behind the camera and posts, sharing my interests for all the world to see.

Busy as I am, with hardly enough time to spare. The big question is WHY NOW?

A Clear 2020 Vision

Because this year 2020, amidst the lingering pandemic, has caused me to realize that life is precious and that I want to always be reminded of that fact.

I didn’t just want to bookend my life with birth and death. I wanted to create a legacy that would outlive me. A legacy of cherished memories and awesome ideas and experiences that would hopefully inspire others.

This was the year, when all of us were sort of forced to stay put and slow down lest we contract the virus. It was for many of us an eye opener as well. I took a step back and reflected on the life I’d lived so far.

I also took a good look at my social media timeline through the years (the only journal of sorts that I’ve had). I thought, “What was I so hurriedly chasing after all these years?” Pursuing success is fine but it felt like the years had gone past lightning fast, leaving me with nothing to show for it or nothing worth talking about. Nothing but fragments of memories that didn’t really capture the heart and soul of my life experiences.

And so it came to be, having started as a thought in my mind- the idea of making a blog and a vlog where I could document meaningful anecdotes, inspirational stories and helpful hacks.

No more forgetting, regretting, or missing out on the little joys of life that actually matter much. I decided I was going to capture everything that means something and share it with whoever cares to learn, listen, and laugh along with me.

My cramped schedule as a Hong Kong-based business owner juggling home and work may make it seem like there’s little time left for me to do everything I set out to do.

But as they say, if your will and purpose are strong, you can bend time and space to make room for what you want.

Sharing away!

What do I want to share through my blog and vlog channels? A lot! Many of which will cater to women and entrepreneurs and everyone who loves beautiful things.

As a designer, I will share about my design journey, projects, and dreams.

As a woman, I will talk about my beauty routine, the current trends, my perspective on fashion for what it’s worth, and my newly developed keto diet.

As a wife and mom, the stories to share are an endless medley of warmth, humor, wisdom, wit, and then so much more.

So, join me as I rediscover again and again life’s beauty, even in challenging times. There’s so much to share and I can’t wait to have you on board!
