Hush… Hush… 


I don’t really have much to share today besides the following lessons that I’ve learned in the past few week: 

  1. Look forward – what “has happened” is in the past. Dwelling on it will not make you better, looking forward and making changes, will. 
  2. Respect yourself – don’t let your emotions affect your work. If you turn up, you need to respect the job & yourself and give it your best. 
  3. Be passionate the right way – it’s not about being stubborn, it’s about the perseverance to make things right. 

That’s all I have for today and I think these 3 points are enough for me to digest for now. 🙂 

I will come back with some baking related posts when I feel better. Have a great week ahead, everyone!

“I’m not the right person!”

I felt so uneasy and paranoid that I just couldn’t live properly. In one of my sessions with my psychiatrist back then, I shared it with her and she said to me, “yes, May Ling, that is true”, but there are different ways to look at that phrase.
