What is a Dash of Spice? I’ve had this line in my head for the longest time. Let’s face it, ladies, life is filled with changes. We all go through them. From the joyous ones like marriage, parenthood, to the uncertain ones like health scares, divorce even.
Most of us go through changes without even noticing. Some of us get scared and perhaps even try to run and hide. Some get stressed and dive into depression. Change is inevitable; it’s how we adapt to the change that matters.
Big or small, life is filled with transitions. Whatever we may be going through, good, bad or ugly, it doesn’t mean we stop living. It doesn’t mean we succumb to the change and let life carry us along for the ride. It also doesn’t mean we are alone in all of this. No. We got to learn to embrace these transitions. And we are certainly not alone. Our circumstances may be different but trust me, we are no different from one another.
This is why I’ve started A Dash Of Spice. For us to share our experiences and learn from one another. I hope you find some lessons in my very own stories.
A Dash of Spice is my hope that we all learn to pepper up our lives and start truly living now.
A little bit about me:
I grew up in Singapore, in a humble brick factory where dad worked…it was a simple life. No electricity till I was 12 and that just meant I had to be creative in keeping myself occupied and entertained all day!
I thought life was about getting a good education, a job in the field that I studied, work hard and get a promotion every few years, maybe even a pay raise every few years…Perfectly normal! Everyone I know went through the same cycle.
Until one day I realized that the work I did no longer excited me. Most people would contemplate – what to do?
Well, I didn’t contemplate – I QUIT!! Without a plan in hand!!!!!
CRAZY?? You bet!
It wasn’t an easy ride. I had my ups and downs. But that taught me a lot and it gave me the motivation to help others. And these are my stories.
