Time for a short mental reflection.
It's only been 2 full weeks; and yes! the shop is off to a great start.
The response for our cakes and cookies have been very encouraging as well!
I can't thank my fellow bloggers and friends who have written such nice things about Delectable and our yummy desserts!
Well no doubt; in my line of work there will always be moments where people decide to have a go at my confidence or credibility, and being the idiot that I am; I would spend the next 2 hours questioning myself. *slaps forehead* I need to stop worrying; it's holding me back.
Remember the ol comparison of 'theory and application'?
Where I am now is a classic example of where it's gone all wrong.
Sleeping 3 hours a day; leaving behind all this things I've loved and forgetting to take pride in my creations... all of that I had NOT intended; ... but it's where my stubborn self has led me.
I've forgotten how to smile; and that creates less room everyday for inspiration and passion in my heart. But THAT is what I treasure most about my silly self; and that is what Delectable has been built on.
I can't exactly put my finger on the moment I made a decisive note to myself that: THIS has GOT to change. This; meaning how my life is now evolving from a fun enjoyable one to a stressful and unforgiving experience; as well as how my goals and dreams for my Delectable will not be achievable at this rate and sequence.
I've strayed from 'plan A; B; C to D E F..and finally to Plan "Taking-it-as-it-comes"! I've got to get my head straight; pull my $*&! together and continue down the right path.
I can't help to admit that I had been distracted from loads of cakes to do; daily shelf items at the store and basically trying to be everyone and everything I felt Delectable needed. I know better than to run myself into the wall like this; and it's about time I acted so.
I'm burnt out; I wont deny... I brought it upon myself without much thought or intention; but there's no use in whining about it. I'm just glad it had only been a week before I snapped out of it.
It might have been the couple of beers with my cousins or the big laughs falling over spins at my attempts to salsa, maybe it was that quiet glass of wine I snuck from the chiller or my quick power nap I rewarded myself with this afternoon. I can't tell what it was. Maybe it was all of it. Maybe it was that comforting smile from Nicole, a big hug from Alan or that hilariously nasty dance from my 'Rico' in the middle of my shop! Haha Whatever it was; after a fun night spent skipping about my Delectable store; I'm all hyped up again to take on new challenges. I'm not tired anymore. I know what I want. I'm stubborn like that *wink* :P
Su's found her "Mojo" back guys!
It's not like I've lost it completely; it just got a little dim from those thousands of cupcakes I had to bake for hungry cake lovers in the Mall! hehe
I promise; the blogging will return, I will be seen out dancing, I will be playing badminton regularly, I will eat 3 meals a day, I will put make up on, and I will wear shoes to match! I WANT to feel alive again! YAY!
Once again; I've seen the light. Only by experience will you ever learn the importance of balance and how it can affect every aspect and outlook on your life.
No doubt; at this point, our retail outlet looks great; functions systematically, is fun, delicious, inspiring and uplifting.
However, give me a little more time; I'm ready to take it to another level. Not only will it be all it is now, Delectable will be impeccable, consistent, professional and a reflection of Su's passion for her creations!
