things… cupcakes!! I’m always excited to see somebody
who gets just as excited about them as I do!
Take it away, Yelena:
Here’s a little unknown fact about me. Well you may know this about me if we’re friends.
Baking cupcakes lost its luster.
I was tired all the time, and stressed whenever I had a cupcake order or an event to bake for.
I wasn’t in love with cupcakes anymore.
So I let it go.
I told all my cupcake fans, “I’m done.”
Well a funny thing happened when I gave it up.
I felt relief. I felt gratitude.
I was sad YES! But I had a clarity. My cupcake business wasn’t a failure. Everyone gave me such outstanding, really positive, a little adoring, feedback about my cupcakes.
So I couldn’t stay sad, I was a success.
As a baker and as a wife and a mother. I was just putting my family first.
I now had time to focus on the “new bun in the oven.”
Just look how she cooked up. There’s a lot of time and attention there.
When I look back at my experience baking and selling cupcakes I feel really grateful.
I was given a glimpse of what my life could be like sometime in the future. I was given a preview of good things to come. And ya know what! We should all be able to say, I have this great opportunity waiting for me when I’m ready. That’s FAITH. And faith is gratitude.
To find faith practice gratitude.
We all have regrets.
Maybe you should rethink a regret.
Regrets are negative emotions. Regrets kill faith.
What if your regret is a preview of something better to come?
What if regrets are what keep you from moving forward in your life?
Tell me, is there something you regret?
Please leave me a comment. I would love to hear about your regrets. Sounds funny right.
But, maybe you can cultivate some gratitude from a regret.
