Hat's off to all those who inspire us.

Could I really be the true Jack of all trades; citizen of neither-land... constantly yearning for the grass over neighbouring fences?
An eyepatch over me and parrot over my shoulder; I'd probably pass off easily as an adventurer armed with my personal ship crew!
Yes yes... I'm lucky; very much blessed with all the incredible opportunities and guidance I've received from far and wide. But more than often, the general public chooses to conveniently forget opportunity without action or dedication does remain irrelevant. They waltz into the store thinking I've hired a couple of little gremlins to bang out cakes by the millions and have just been sitting on my royal butt accepting all that glamorous attention. Friends and family who have followed me through my mere 6 months of development have seen my sequence of mental and physical deterioration! *laughs* It isn't as though no one has offered help or have given me all I've needed to start off Delectable. The number of kind gestures of goodwill I've received are countless!
It's great!! I should be satisfied no?
I should just say hey! The shop is awesome~
.... but no... Su Yin doesn't stop; she keeps reaching for more and more... not out of greed; but purely for the satisfaction of knowing she can.
Occasionally I find funny little ways to inspire myself to keep pushing forward; most of the time it is the people around me and the stories I hear about others just like me.
Here's just another little something; her melody and lyrics transported me to an 'untouchable' pedestal! well...just in my mind I suppose. *giggle*

Makes me want to run up a meadow singing at the top of my lungs ala - Sound of Music!

I wasn't a fan of Hannah Montana; but I guess I am now?..
