I get these quite a bit these days. :)
First, you sent your maid away. Now, you’re selling your bakes. Is everything alright?
First, you sent your maid away. Now, you’re selling your bakes. Are you mad?!?! Why slog when you can happily sit around and shake leg?
Finally you’re putting that pretty head of yours into good use. It’s good to have you back!
Hmmm.. shunned/ignored me completely after i sent out the message as though i’ve plague or something. It’s rather sad because if you know me well, i’d never hard sell my stuff. I won’t want to, i don’t need to. Even though it’s a mass message, it’s still nice to have a reply you know. I don’t expect everyone to like granola and i certainly don’t expect everyone to buy from me but an acknowledgement, even a short one, would be nice. Some of them are people whom i truly care about. :(
That question — Why am i doing this?
3 words : Passion, Goal, Dream.
I’m not getting younger. I’ve lived past the age where i promised i’d do something about myself. And then, inspiration struck, planning took off, and here i am, realizing what i wanna do. I don’t wanna wake up tomorrow and sigh, thinking about the promise i’d made to myself 11 years ago when i first got pregnant.
Even though it has been a short one month since i first sent out my very first packet of granola, the experience has been quite something. Joy, thrill, satisfaction, sad, stress, depress, anger, sleepless nights… i’d experienced them all in this one month.
In many ways, i’m still that 19 years old girl the husband first saw in 1999 — some friends still call me girl, even though i’m a mother of 3 and they’re still single! *grins* That says quite a bit right? — After the husband, i kinda stop growing up. I have lived rather alright all these years. I don’t need to go work. I do what i wanna do (most of the time). I am pampered and spoiled by the husband and his family. In short, i am well protected and i didn’t get to see the world. To a few really close friends, they know this is not me and they’re right.
I’ve been warned that this will not be easy and i (already!) know it’s true. However, i’m willing to give it try, give this small adventure of mine my best shot and if it doesn’t take off, at least i know i had bothered to attempt something and fulfilled that silly promise i’d made myself 11 years ago. Importantly, i’m very passionate about what i’m doing now and am loving every second of it! Emails, smses and feedback from customers and friends keep me grounded and most of them if not all truly made my day. Thank you for your generous compliments and unwavering support. Thank you for letting me share my (yummilicious, in my opinion lah :P) granola with you. :)
Meanwhile, help me stay afloat in this boat of mine please? Or at least, for an extended period? Along the way, feel free lend me your hand and guide me to right route again when i stray off or lag behind because like the gfs warned, Real world sucks, babe. You’ll see many beautiful people, good people, ugly people, bad people and last but not least, inhuman people.
ps : if you have any good inspirational quote books to recommend, do share, thanks! don’t laugh but they’re my daily drug dosage now. :P
