Barely half a year into getting down and dirty with my job; I'm already beginning to question if it's taking over my life. I say slowly... but surely.
Neglecting health, loved ones, meals, exercise, fun and social activities is just the beginning of this obsession of mine for work. I'm starting to use those 2 very contrasting words synonymously. It's a scary thought.
As you can imagine; I've been alerted by many caring individuals about how it's beginning to get a little out of hand; but I defend this love of mine... this love for Work.
I convince myself that it is all I want to do in this point in my youth. I make up reasons and excuses in my head to reassure myself that I'm doing the right thing. *tsk tsk*
I finally took a step back and saw for myself today; I am now finally convinced; I want to make this dream happen! but this is not the approach to success.
I'm glad it came to me early. It took many brilliant friends with wise words to shake me off this perception that all I had that was important was work. I had forgotten to spend time with my friends, to show my family I care and to take time to practice my other hobbies.. I hadn't taken a good photograph in AGES! and I haven't written in days.. well; that's never a good thing.
I'm going to spend these last waking moments.... surfing itunes, updating my blog; answering my blogger mails; writing to my boyfriend and organizing my photographs.
I'm even going to make something special for the family to celebrate the New Year with in the morning! That should make mom and dad real happy.
My CNY cookies are finally finished and are all tray-ed. Can't wait to finish handing them out tomorrow evening.
There are more cakes to cover; cupcakes to decorate; articles to write for and designs to quote.. but that can all wait. For once this week, Su is sleeping before 4am. I'm determined to make that happen! *grin*
Not exactly going to leave this post bare, un-delicious or cake-less.
Here's a couple of photos taken at the recent bridal expo at the Midvalley Exhibition center.
Thanks to those who came by to say hi :) Haha It's always funny to be recognized as the 'cookingismypassion' girl!
I had my Delectable cakes on display at Victoria's booth. Heart to Heart always creates such amazingly classy set ups. The perfect backdrop my prettier girly cakes. Hehe. It was so much fun sharing my weekend with Victoria and her funny hubby Melvin. Check out his website; he does awesome wedding photography.
Thanks guys! XX
