I have some news to share! Some of you already know this, but I am currently working on producing and selling my macarons professionally by partnering with a wholesale bakery. I’m still in the phase of actually processing that this is really going to happen, but I guess I’m excited (and terrified) for what’s to come.
To be completely honest, I think my friends are more excited for me when I tell them what’s going on than I am for myself. Don’t get me wrong, I am thrilled at the prospect of making something I thought was just a fun hobby into a reality. But part of me is scared that once that fantasy becomes a reality, it won’t be quite as ideal as I imagined it would be.
I am so thankful for the love and support that people have been pouring out on me up until now, but part of me resents it a little. To be excited for and encourage things that you have no attachment and responsibility for is easy. Telling someone to do something is one thing, but going out and actually doing it yourself is another thing entirely.
I know that this isn’t going to be an easy project, and I have no idea what I’m doing. But all I’m hoping for is that in some way I can glorify God with this passion of mine, and lean on him for strength and direction for what I believe to be a door he has opened for me.
I’m planning on documenting my thoughts and process through this journey here on this blog. So if you’d like to know what’s up with this project of mine, I’ll try to post regularly. This might work out, or it might not. At the end of it all, I just want to move forward knowing that I learned something I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to without this crazy opportunity.
All in all, I really can’t believe that I have the chance to make this passion of mine into something tangible. I’ve been taught over and over again of the hards truths of reality and practicality that work against our ambitions. I guess this will be my test in seeing where my passions can lead me in the world of reality.
