During a student’s internship in one the most prestigious hotels in Almaty I understood two things that would change my life. First, I discovered that taking care of people, answering to their requests and helping them to make their stay at the hotel an unforgettable experience was something that I really liked and that I was good at. Second, I realized that I was doing all this with great pleasure for guests that I did not know personally. Then, why not do the same for my family and the people I love?
The idea of staying at home and dedicating my time, knowledge and passion to something that many do not value could be seen as a sacrifice but I believe that is one of the best choices I have done so far in my life. After my internship, I learned that I was willing to become the best homemaker ever. I really wanted to do it and most importantly, I wanted to do it cheerfully.
“Poetry, Home and Innovation”, these are the three words that I have chosen to describe my blog. I am not an artist, but I love art and I like to define homemaking as the art of living. Maintaining a professional attitude is decisive because running the household requires a lot of managerial skills and an entrepreneurial mindset. Finally, I believe that I am an agent of change because by taking care of those closer to me, I am really promoting and enabling change in a society that needs to be reminded of the beauty of the art of living.
I have a great deal to explain what I do. On a daily basis, I am in charge of the cleaning, laundry and meals, but that is what people see. What it is unseen is the revolutionary power of what I do, because I am creating a family atmosphere that allows people to grow and that inspires others to take care of their home and family with excellence.
“The business done in the home is nothing less than
the shaping of the bodies and souls of humanity”
– G. K. Chesterton
