Cakes, cupcakes, cookies and chocolate have always helped me cope with the stress and myriad of events going on in my life. Not so much eating them – although I won’t turn one down if offered LOL – but creating custom visions to match someone’s personality and tastes.
It’s ironic but somehow fitting. I’ve realized that, although I’ve worked in almost every other industry, I find solace and relief in creating edible works of art. =)
Everyone needs an outlet. While you could turn to alcohol, drugs or other negative coping methods, finding something you love and can lose yourself in for a half hour (or more) while you regroup is extremely healing.
What do you enjoy? Reading, writing, knitting, crafting, woodworking, customizing vehicles … The possibilities are endless!
It doesn’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to turn it into a job. Please do not worry about creating a surplus of product either. You can always bring happiness to others by donating your work to your favorite charity or giving your fabulousness as a gift.
Find your bliss and bless the world with what’s in your heart.
