I’ve been hit by the macaron fever ( thanks to Masterchef Australia) and had been making these for a few months now. Only recently did I pluck up the courage to try the Italian method, as I was a bit put off by the extra step and equipment required over the French method.
Hopes – are these babies going to rise?
Suffice to say that I’m a convert now!
Often people set themselves new year’s resolution early on in the year. Usually as a result of too much to drink, to eat, work, party etc. Seldom do they start one after the second month of the year, and I think I’ve just snuck in by writing a post on the last day in February 2012, which also happens to be an extra day in the leap year.
I’m writing this because I want to start my own resolution. Not a ‘new year’ resolution, more like a life resoultion. A lot of things has happened in the past few years – births, blossomed friendships, degrees attained, new hobbies, attempts to master hobbies, growth as a person, growth as a parent, growth as a professional, relationship with God and deaths.
The last one has probably triggered my reentry to the blog world after a 6 year hiatus.
I’ve been pondering the meaning of life. What are we supposed to do here while on earth? What’s our purpose in life? While I firmly believe that God has a plan and I am part of it, I can’t help but wonder what it is. Since I wouldn’t know exactly what his plans are for me until the day I meet Him, I can only go with what He has given me so far and go from there.
Hence this blog – hopes. dreams. aspirations.
The dictionary definition follows:
the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best
to think or conceive of something in a very remote way ; to imagine as if in a dream; fancy; suppose.
strong desire, longing, or aim; ambition
The last one is the one that really puzzles me – what do I aspire to do? Who do I aspire to be? Most of all, what can I do about it?
This blog is my attempt to sort out my thoughts in writing and find an answer.
