I have learned that enjoying the simple things in life is what really helps me define happiness for me. The more that I have had in life, the more I lost track of what was important to me or what should have been important to me instead. I have had problems with being financially responsible. There have been times where I had plenty of money but foolishly spent it. Other times where I’ve been poor but have managed to save money and enjoy myself. I’ve been working for http://www.cakeflower.com.sg for a few months now and while I might not be making the most money I have ever made in my life, I am making a enough for to feed myself but I am also getting the chance to create unique cake designs. People absolutely love them – I get such a kick out of delivering a cake that I have made to a client and see their eyes light up in joy at the sight of it. It’s a feeling of pride and happiness that i’m able to effect a person like that.
I think that might be my own personal ‘purpose’ in life. I don’t consider myself a religious individual but I do believe that we have a purpose – not a destiny or a fate but rather something that is defined by what we want it to be. Each of us have unique talents and capabilities which help us get through this life and it’s those talents that can help us find our purpose in life. I really do believe that I could be happy for the rest of my life baking cakes. I want to be able to make people happy even in a small way and if this is the way that I can do so and do it well, I’m content with that.
