Saying 'Yes'!

"Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say "yes" to life?"
— Paulo Coelho
Well, a BIG YES to Life and Law of Attraction it is!

I am now a full-time dreamer and a trainee housewife.

And I Thank the Universe for aligning the stars for me again and again! =)

You see, it took me a bit of time to start this post. I've been tryin' to hold on to my chair since last week or a month ago actually, before I do publish this and tell the Internet an oh-so-exhilarating-news! =)

Today I officially started my indefinite leave from the rat race. Feel free to blink your eye while reading this coz yes, I've finally done it. I resigned from my full time job and decided to take an oh-much-needed-REAL-break!!! For how long? Well, I don't know yet. That's why I called it indefinite. Hehe. Will I miss the corporate world? I can't tell for now. I might go back but maybe after a month or two or three or more ....or never. *wink*

And what am I suppose to do now while on this so-called-break?

Well, it won't definitely be as easy as it may sound. Really. It's not like I've found a pot of gold and I can now have all the time of my life...oh nothing like that, not yet, but hey, I sure am beaming and looking forward to start living my dreams fully,too and do what I passionately love doing and really do MORE, that my dear friends include the art of embroidery. No, I'm not kidding. Haha. Oh I know I'm starting to sound so domesticated, am I? of course! I'll have more time to hopefully be a better housewife, too!!! My dearest mother explicitly reminded me all the housewives-must-dos over the phone when I called her this morning (too bad I didn't have a pen to write them all! tsk tsk) and my father gave his blessings for me to go follow my guts and have faith in me. On top of all this craze I'm putting myself into, I have Brian to be ever so grateful for -- him being there for me, despite me being still an imperfect wife, and supporting my decisions every step of the way (well, we still argue now and then ya knoww!). A matter of fact, I hope I made him proud coz I started experimenting  learning to cook again and served a sumptuous dinner tonight...next thing ya know, I might just become my husband's all-time-favorite chef. LOL. (special thanks to Junior Masterchef Australia, i couldn't get over how kiddos ages 8-12 can seriously cook , so why can't I? hehe)

If you're curious enough, I've already filled my calendar and task lists to fill my coming sunshiny & rainy days: morning/afternoon runs, blog, revamp website, study (nihongo!), sleep, photoshootsssss (yey!), travel (oh yes travel more i hope!), clean, wash, cook ......and la la la...repeat. *big big grin*

Hope Tuesday treated you all well everyone!!! Spreadin' la la la lurvvv! =)
