I never realized how much that single line is helping me in my personal life at the moment. A friend of mine recently advised me to stop trying to be “a jack of all trades” because i will be “a master of none”. I love many things, many, many things… i’m just so intrigued. I’d love to learn how to do all those things i am intrigued by. The problem lies here: I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO DO ALL THINGS SIMULTANEOUSLY. Almost too simultaneously that it makes me feel indecisive.

So, in avoiding to learn many things in a half-ass way, I will approach 2 things that resonate with me the most at the moment and learn, adapt, improve, create and become a master. Then as my interest may change, i will choose 2 more things and do the same. I may change my mind in the process and it will be ok. I’m confident this approach will serve me better as i learn, practice and perfect.

Speaking of master… I like tea very much! Me encanta!

And I have been wanting to become a Tea Master. In becoming a Tea Master, one learns about the cultivation of tea and its processing, its characteristics in flavor, tea rituals and history. Also, with more certification, one will have the ability to distinguish the quality of different teas as well as tea ware and learn advanced brewing techniques.

 

I recently looked up the information for certification, and umm… let’s just say, I will stick to drinking and sharing with loved ones and taking my time to learn on my own through research and tasting as much tea as i possibly can, at least for now.

Is that me going about it in a half-ass way? I jus’t dont have that kind of money, and I refuse to get a loan. Either way, taking time to do the research and tasting all kinds of teas will give me an excuse to throw tea parties all the time, and who doesn’t love and enjoy tea parties?

  1. I love drinking tea too, helps clear the mind and melts your stress away for a wee while! 🙂

  3. I have the same struggles, I am just interested in sooo many different things. Taking things two at a time sounds like a good idea.
