What have I achieved in the past year? Oh, nothing much. Same old, same old. Not much of a "career" in the traditional sense. Sure, I've had a kid. Sure, I've had two. Sure, I'm about to celebrate 10 years of marriage in a few months. But other than that? Ho-hum. Nothing much. It's hot today isn't it?
Except, why do I keenly feel the need to identify myself within the confines of a career?
I guess I've always thought I'd be a bit of an achiever when it came to work. (At the very least, I thought I'd be earning more!) And it's a battle I fight each year, when December 31 comes around.
With the drama and adventure of 2013, you'd think I'd have learnt my lesson on what deems as important!
So I guess I really should take stock and refocus on my real achievements hey?
- I've had a kid! He's turned 7! And he's smart and won't stop talking!
- I've had another kid! He's just turned 4 months! And he's smart and won't stop coo-ing!
- Hubby and I have a strong marriage (which I gather, by the rate of relationships dissolving in 2014, is quite a feat).
- I spent the last year in a job I truly enjoyed, and made new friends, some who remain very close.
- I spent Christmas in Brisbane with close friends and got to ride the roller-coasters at the theme parks - trust me, this was a huge Win for me LOL.
- Got to make new friends through Social Media, especially Instagram.
So! What do I look forward to for 2015?
- Baby hitting new milestones
- Celebrating 10 years of marriage
- Deepening meaningful relationships
- Possibly returning back to work. Possibly.
- Trying out new cake designs and recipes and hopefully revamp the cake website.
- Opening a new cafe with hubby and friends.
- Flying back to Singapore to visit family.
- Perhaps taking a holiday to a new destination - maybe Japan? Or Europe again (I wish!!)
In the meantime, this being a BABY blog, and since I've just had another BABY, here're some pictures to drool over (literally, there's saliva everywhere right now!)
Guess which one is Aidan and which is Adam?!
