s I mentioned in my last post, I was feeling hopeless and frustrated with research, like a bug in dark box trying to get out and hitting the wall over and over again. I met with Carmen yesterday at her home, she with PJs and I with a sad face. As a good advisor and friend, she “rescued” me. We talked about how to proceed with my thesis and most importantly she taught me to “listen to our inner voice“. I am a lucky girl. Every time I feel lost between to do what my heart says and to follow the convention or the safest path, someone who I respect comes out to help to remind me to go to the right direction. 13 years ago was my best friend who contributed on my passion into Economics, 4 years ago was the director of my university to come to US for a Ph.D, and now it’s Carmen, probably the most important person in my professional career.
As I said it in recipe to success, the perfect mix for success is to do what you’re passion about and what you’re good at. I know what are these two ingredients in my case. So, why do I want to pretend what I’m not?
Q: Have you tried listen to others instead of your heart?
Grilled sammie as breakfast (not surprisingly). This time filled with onion jam, LC, cheddar and apple.
I was intriged by Mandras curry Mustard: This mustard is packed with exotic flavor, a hint of sweetness and finishes with a punch of spice.
Product: Double chocolate mint chip
Description: replacing the conventional butter with an organic ingredient, palm fruit oil results in a wonderful cookie with no hydrogenated oils.
Coco’s take: I was skeptical about this because I don’t usually eat cookies, but this little thing surprised me by far! It was crunchy and light, with a incredible mint flavor and melting chocolate chips in it, really irresistible. 5/5
