ALL AT ONCE......

Hello all fellow bloggers. I do not know where to start. The past few weeks have been like lightning, it all came so fast and went by so fast, I actually need to stop, take a deep breath and start afresh, much more clear and organised.

At first there were just a few things that I had to manage. There were days when I use to love the luxury of doing what I wanted to do and when I wanted to. And then there were days when I felt as though I was not doing enough.

And then everything was just swung towards me all at once, as though telling me " you wanted it, now you have it".......

To make all this a little more comprehensible, I am talking about work, home, business and my passions/ interests . Everything just needed to be done and taken care of.

I was volunteering with a nutritionist once a week or from home. Her assistant was going for another job, so she asked me to join her full time for nearly three weeks. Simultaneously, my friend approached me with a business proposition.

That was pretty exciting, as we researched more about opening up a tea kiosk, we found out it was no easy job. So we decided to start off something smaller and more easy to manage. We decided on selling tea, online and holding tea events. So the planning started.

Our first tea event was just last weekend (more on that later). So every evening when I got back from the nutritionist, me and my friend worked on our small little venture. The business name, business cards, packaging, everything. I will elaborate on that later in my next email.

Working nearly 14 hours a day, work at home was piling up and off course the blog was getting neglected. And not to forget my carpel tunnel syndrome, I actually needed to prioritise it all.
I felt so left out, seeing every one posting yummy stuff, and every day I would tell myself , I need to update my blog, and it never happened until today.

Starting Monday, I am only working twenty hours a week at the nutritionists place and then rest of the time devote to my little tea venture. I actually need to be more organised and more effective.

I seriously admire all those bloggers who do it all. Manage work, home, and their passion for blogging. Hats off.

I promise myself to be more disciplined and manage time more efficiently. I want to get back to my old blogging habits, and take part in events. I was just beginning to get noticed in the blogger world...booohuuuuuuuu!!!!!

But sometimes this break helps too. I have lots of recipes to update and will be updating them all soon.
Hope to have all my readers, ready for all my new recipes.
I am finally doing the balancing act.
wish me luck and give me some tips.
and we do not have kids yet!!!!!!!.

Take care guys.
Tea updates, website, name, events coming soon.

Focus is the keyword. Remember, multitasking leads to mediocrity.

Wishing you all the luck for your venture.
