My drawing at the start of the year vs the end of the year! I drew the same picture, hit way better! I’ve improved a lot.. like A LOT. I’m so happy with this and how far my drawing has come! At the start of the year, I sucked at drawing noses and lips as you can see😂, but I practiced them enough to make them better! Something I didn’t add was the chain, mainly because I’m still practice to draw them, as you can see it didn’t go very well at the start of the year😂, so I’ve left the chain out of it to not ruin it :) My hair drawing skills definitely still aren’t perfect but they’re way better, same for the eyes and eyebrows. The first drawing I think took me about an hour, the second one took 2 days☺️! I hope you all like my improvement and I might add the chain later on if I want to! If you have any feedback on what to keep improving, let me know in the comments ❤️ [tag billie if u want, u don’t have to :)] — @billieeilish#billieeilish#billieeilishdrawing#billieeilishart#billieeilishfanart#billieeilishfan#drawing#art#artimprovement#drawingimprovement#yearapart#yearimprovement 💞
The second picture is from almost exactly a year ago. It’s amazing to look back and see that I really have made progress. I decided to make some additions as well of two more of my ocs lol. Heres Nelleh, Matthew, Liam, and Milly. For a little context of these guys (who I hope to use more) Nelleh has fire abilities, Matthew and Milly are siblings and have ice and snow abilities and Liam has light abilities. There are two more ocs that go with these 4 but I decided not to use them yet lol. Hope you like them :) #oc#ocs#originalcharacter#digitalart#procreate#theworkshopchronicles#art#character#christmas#redraw#yearapart#christmas2019
Big dirty cringe but also I look a bit class on the right but only a bit.
I’m accepting bicep emojis, little flames, 100 in that red font and anything containing the words “swole”, “jacked” and “bro”. #progress#yearapart#filthygains#mirrorselfie#gym

A year ago Vs now (aka diet face vs eating and loving life 🐷)
To be completely honest I don’t remember my face looking that gaunt a year ago. But Im more than aware that I have gained weight in the last 6 months & for the first time in my life I’m actually completely fine with it. And what a weird thing to have to write/say out loud when you have struggled with the number on a machine says which determines your gravitational pull on the earth?!
My current goal is to grow, eventually I’ll cut down to see the work I’ve put in, but that time is not now. Is it scary switching from diets/calorie deficit and standing on the scales week in and out to not measuring calories and eating meals to fuel to train? Abso-bloody-lutely! I’ve had my fair share of wobbles in the last 3 months but I’ve actually maintained my weight since coming off honeymoon in July whilst not counting calories and not restricting myself 🙌🏻
I’ve always known it but lifting weights won’t make you “bulky” if anything right now I’m more content with my weights & what I’m doing in the gym more than I have been in years. Hard work pays off!
The days are long, the years are short bbs. These pics are about a year apart... (and actually I think the days are short and generally fly by way fast too, except maybe sometimes at bedtime when that parenting theme could come to mind. ;)
Having toddlers means sometimes doing the little, silly things to keep them engaged. Posing, making faces, getting on their level.
Using every opportunity to teach an awareness for social interaction, respect, kindness and how love is exhibited in our day to day behavior.
Showing gentleness and grace when we are feeling frustrated as parents (heck, as humans; Our young humans are always watching us) assists in strengthening that bond between parent and child. It shows trust worthiness, consistency and that you always have that place in your heart for that child looking up to you.
If you have faith, then this also opens the door for introducing your child to understand grace and its cost. Which isn't cheap. It takes discipline, self control, surrender, dedication and giving up your wants and comforts for One much greater than yourself.
All this and it doesn't end when the lights go off at night. No, then you're working double time. Getting your time in for self care, connection with your spouse, and having an extra dose of gentility and grace towards your child (and spouse) when the littles take turns waking up for milk, water, a book, potty, snack... or the dogs start howling.
All in all, real life with toddlers.
