Doing What You Love
I am not so happy that I was not so active in blogging that I used to do before. I was still an OFW when I've started blogging and obviously, when overseas I don't have to take care of anyone but myself. I have no house to look after, manage and maintain. I have no kids to take care of, I don't even have my own kitchen and complete set of equipment to improve my skills in cooking and baking. Most of the time, I have to cook quickly as me and my housemates take turns in using the kitchen. Therefore, during those times I have to find another passion where I can spend my free time and also to avoid being homesick and this is where I've discovered blogging. I used to blog almost everyday and this keeps me busy apart from my responsibility at work. However, soon after I returned to the Philippines for good, blogging has been taken into the back seat. This is so because I am home now and I can do everything I love to do freely as I am literally in my own space now. This is where I developed my passion in cooking and baking.
I would admit, I wasn't good at first, I don't even consider myself so good now. But as the saying goes, "practice makes perfect". Well, I know that I am not yet perfect and probably would never be but I am happy that I've been seeing a great improvement on me the past 3 years. As a matter of fact, my passion in baking allowed me to turn it into business which I have never thought of in the first place.
Now I now, doing what you love does not only make you happy but also fulfilled.
