It is exactly the sweet taste of my accomplishment that I want to blog about today.. Last night, for the first time I made brownies.. And again for the first time, I didn’t forget to take it out of the oven.. I have to say, I am very proud of myself to have gotten the taste approval from my parents as well as some of my friends who have stated that they are better than Starbucks brownies.. I am just happy that I am able to eat something that i made along with my afternoon cup of tea..
Accomplishments.. Whether they are small or big, they make us feel useful and confident.. We all aspire to be high achievers.. A better job, higher salary, more awards.. And sometimes just being able to bake.. Making something edible.. Without going astray on my main topic, when do we stop wanting to achieve? So, I successfully completed my task of baking a tray of brownie mix.. Does this mean I will go on to make Victoria sponges and scones? Maybe.. Will I become the next big baker? Obviously not..
However, I must admit that accomplishments and the enjoyment of them motivate us to further our goals.. I guess we just need to learn how to spot it when we reach the peak of our capacity, especially in our professional work life.. Overdoing will kill the joy of achieving.. In the end, how many baked good will make me happy? Or to put it in the life of money-makers, how much money does one need?
I know that I have got carried away with the notion of achievements and accomplishments.. From a simple brownie to money-making.. One could see some links I guess.. Forgive me.. I’m just trying to understand what makes us smile the most nowadays… What makes our heart skip a beat?
