Sorry for my silence...

I know I've beeb very bad updating my journals these days. Sorry about it. I'm so busy with my online shops and other things. It should settle down by the next month or in June, I hope.
I just made a big decision in my life. I'm quitting my work as soon as I finish my project at work. I'll say goodbye to all stupid work,boss and commuting time!! Gee, I feel so happy and free now.
I've been unhappy with my new boss and new assigment for the past year, and now I decided to go on my way!!

Wow, Kumi! That's a big leap! Good for you for being brave enough to make it! I just made a similar decision, and I know how hard it can be to decide to make a big change in your life.

As usual, wonderful crisp and colorful photos. It sounds like you are really thinking of your own healthy state of mind and will be much happier! It's all about being happy.

Kumi I also took the same decision 3 years ago and I feel free, I've been doing translations (which I'm planning to stop on september, sick and tired of it) and working with children and I guess this last one is my favorite, I'll be searching in the next months some more work with children , so that I can have my time for my creations but also have a nice and quite job gaining some money.
Go for it :)

Good for you! Hold on to that fresh feeling of freedom and enjoy it. Welcome all the new adventures that life has in store for you.
I'm proud of you.

mangetsu said...

Good luck, Kumi!
There are so many wonderful things to enjoy around you, if you don't have to you must not be bothered by anyone.

Hi Amanda.
It took me a while finally to make the decision.
I still have a project going on at work, so I'll stay until it'll be over.
Working on your own is not easy, right? Paying taxes and other stuffs sound so hard...
But it's great to be free from anyone or anything!

Hi Larissa.
Thanks for your kind words.
Yap, it's spring.
And we Japanes start new thing always in spring!!

*Kumi said...

Hi madhatter.
Yes, I'll start my own business just like what you call "SOHO".
It can be hard, but it should be fun to work just for yourself!!

*Kumi said...

Hi handmade girl.
I know how you feel. However, Jade will stay at her nursery school even I start my own business as she does right now. I need my own time to do my business, and she needs her friends and society to play with. So it won't change. We just love the current nursery school and they do so well on kids. Working mom needs something like this that we can count on from our hearts!!
The pretty small white flowers are called "lily of the valley", I think! Aren't they so cute???

*Kumi said...

Hi Tania.
Your words mean a lot to me, thanks!

*Kumi said...

Hi green kitchen.
Thanks and wish me a good luck!!

*Kumi said...

Hi Gina.
Yes, I want to stay happy. And I'm not happy at work at all for years!! Do I deserve to be happy, right? Yes, YES!!

*Kumi said...

Hi Nicole.
Thanks, my dear.
I'll go on my way!!

*Kumi said...

Hi Sofia.
Oh, you did it 3 yrs ago? Didn't know that. I know translation work is a kind of boring and sucks as I do the same kind of work at office many times. But I have to continue some translation works to earn my living as it gives you some cash money! Hope you also will find a great job that suits you!!

*Kumi said...

Hi ismoyo.
Happy to hear your encouragement. That means a lot to me. I hope I can enjoy being myself when I go on my own. I need to plan a lot from now on!! Cannot wait to face the new adventures!!

*Kumi said...

Hi Mangetsu.
Thanks for your words!!
Arigato!

anne said...

Congratulations Kumi! You know what's best for you and I'm sure you will be much happier without the stupid boss. Life is too short to be working at a job you don't enjoy. I would love to follow your footsteps and do something else. Best of luck to you1

Hi Anne.
I'll be happier without stress from commuting for a long time, working with unpleasant people and so on. But I'll have to think about it once again how to make my living as well! Oh, well. Life goes on and I want to say happy!

*Kumi said...

Hi Morgan.
Welcome to my blog, and thanks for your visit.

*Kumi said...

Salut, Natacha.
Oh, books?
Never thought about it.
Umm, let me think about it.
Merci beaucoup per votre bon idee!!
