Today Noah and I went to visit our lovely friends Marta and Dan in their band new Patisserie!
It was perfect! Full of stunning food and lovely drinks. The decoration was funky and it seemed like the ideal place for a coffee shop.
Despite having a Doctorate from Loughborough University in something completely different Marta dreamt of having her own coffee shop. She took her decision to go back into training and completed a patisserie and confectionary course, she got experience and then the orders started to flock in!
As soon as she knew she was onto a success she handed her notice in and committed herself to her business. Then the mission to have her own premises began – and now she is up and running. Totally amazing!
The best thing of all was that Marta and Dan seemed so happy doing what they were doing.
Seeing what Marta had achieved made me think about how we can best achieve happiness. To me it seems that mindfulness is at the heart of it.
Marta loves what she does and because she loves it she can focus completely on it. When she makes her amazing cakes she pays so much attention to detail so they look great. When she decided to change her career she made sure she got the steps right so it has worked. She has found something she is passionate about and has given it her all.
When you give something your whole attention you are completely mindful whilst you are doing it. Nothing distracts you and nothing takes you away, you are driven. When you are present in the moment you succeed and you find happiness.
Remembering that you too could find work that makes you happy is so important. We spend most of our lives at work and so taking the time to really decide what to do is a great investment.
