We Couldn’t be more excited !! Now let’s tell you a bit about our lifestyle .
Creativity, I am just discovering has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. From being the go-to girl in primary school when it came to lending a helping hand in art class. To performing every kind of play and dance programs organised by my school. I remember feeling most alive during these times as cliche as it might sound.
High school was no different. As I was found once again in every creative club the school could create. It just came naturally for me. fast forward to some years back in the university. I took up a course in the medical field and didn’t know I would end up channeling my creativity otherwise. My creative spirit flourished in different ways. I would always find myself baking something for my friends and me to enjoy. Sampling all the restaurants across town. Trying new recipes for the fun of it and much more.
here’s a profound memory. I was having a good time with my friends when at some point someone asked me a question. She said, “what would you rather splurge on, clothes or food?” looking at her directly without hesitation. I said, “food”. which brings me to my next point…
As I said before it was one way for me to be creative. I loved every single moment of it. I know today I call myself a baker. Tomorrow I would wake up and call myself a cook. To the amusement of my poor husband. I would tell him how I wanted to go to culinary school to be a pastry chef. Other times I would drill him on the strategies I needed to make to start a food business.
All of these dreams are still much alive within my soul. It made me realise it was something I wasn’t going to give up any time soon. Even if it meant travelling the world to seek out these dreams. Speaking of which is a clue to my next idea…
Travelling in pursuit of my dreams is something I will do in a heartbeat. Given the chance. I realised this because I revel in the power of discovery. Some people define it as getting to a destination and shopping till they drop. For me, it is the journey itself. The process of getting to my desired place and the wonders and experiences money can’t buy. That makes it wholesome.
if I can even in a little way share this feeling of discovery with anyone. I believe those with the same mindset as me will find it worthwhile. I believe the bonds that will get to be formed through this means will be deep-rooted and pure. Which brings me to my last point…
This is the core centre of life’s purpose. The relationship we seek trying to discover our spirituality. Family ties. Bonds with a partner and ultimately with other human beings and creatures. These ties are the way we are all connected. So if there is any way we can better and improve these relationships. We should seize the means. For it will serve as a stepping stone and solid foundation. For the next generation to be the best versions of themselves. by the way…
Attaining the best versions of ourselves is an exercise that should occupy our minds completely. This enables us to focus on what’s important so we can grow. To change the world we have to change ourselves first. That’s what personal growth is about. It helps us to identify areas we need to improve in physically, mentally and spiritually. And actively work on them at our own pace.
This isn’t a one-man show. (Hence the reason why its on the world wide web!). If you possess something that has made your life better. Be it through food, family life, travel or any other forms of creativity. Share it with others. Somebody out there is desperately in need of inspiration. You can be a positive catalyst for better in such a person’s life. Be part of the spark that ignites change in a person for the better.
The goal ultimately, is to drive positive impact through some creative aspects in life. To teach and learn. Grow and most of all to have a good time while going through it all.
