Tattiana Reznick is a 21 year old student at the University of Houston and guess what? She is doing what she loves and loving what she does. No, not going to school, rather baking.
You see, Tata is the founder and CEO of the School of Lil'Chefs, teaching baking to children.
When I asked Tata why she does this, her eyes brighten and a huge smile beams across to me and she says, " Food allows me to express my creativity and I like the feeling it gives me when people enjoy what I made!"
So Tata, "Isn't it hard balancing school work and trying to run a business at the same time?"
"Well yes," she says, " But its much easier to open a business you are passionate about because it dosen't feel like work!"
Are you getting this folks? Love is not work, work is not love.
So I turn to Tata's mother, Francis, who is beaming and glowing and I ask her, "When did you first see her essence coming out?"
"Oh!" Exclaims Francis, "When she was seven years old she took a magazine baking recipe and baked us a cake all on her own."
The story thickens, just like the batter, or dough, or whatever it is...this is the same story that the famous painter, Peter Max shared in his interview. His mother let him play with all kinds of paints and told him to "make a mess" and don't worry about it.
When you look at Tata and mother Francis, all you feel is love. Unadulterated, love and happiness.
It seems to me, that becoming all you are meant to be, and doing what you love, is a family affair. It begins at first with mom and dad allowing us to explore, create, break, paint, cook until our natural essence bubbles to the surface.
Join me on December 17th with Tata at the school as I join the other Lil' Chefs and attempt to make a ginger bread house with my darling daughter, Taylor.
