What is it all about?

Just like any businesswoman, I have been hearing that I needed to create a blog. So I threw myself into the blogosphere to find out what it was all about and, boy, I was impressed. I found so many beautiful, creative and well written blogs about, pretty much, anything I could think of and not! So what could I write about? As I was sitting and thinking in front of the blank page of my computer, I looked at my little Alex sitting with his feet criss-cross-applesauce, chewing his sandwich and doing nothing… And then I felt that “ta-da” moment – I should write about life’s simple pleasures that we usually don’t pay attention to, but should…

In this age when multitasking is no longer considered a special skill but a norm, I have joined others in a marathon of completing a “to do” list – being the best mom and wife, a top professional, and not forgetting entertainment, spa times, quick weekend trips, gallery visits… But after doing all these things, somehow I still do not feel satisfied – why? Maybe it is because there are more things I need to do, like adopting a baby girl, or learning Chinese, or traveling to see the Northern lights…

I usually place my lunch on my knees and eat it while I zoom through the 5FWY trying to get from one meeting to another and, understandably, I feel no taste of my usual tuna sandwich for which I paid seven bucks.
I never complain about my life style, but I wouldn’t necessarily want my kids, or any kids, to lead this kind of life. I wonder why? Am I right, or do I need to learn a thing or two from them? Maybe I don’t need to do all the things I do, maybe I just need to learn... to be?..

Hmm… it is not as easy as one may think, but I will bravely take on this project of learning to appreciate life’s simple pleasures and will be sharing my finds with you…  Maybe the next generation will have it naturally…

With love, always…
